The case study mainly deals with Abide Manufacturers Limited (Abide); a renowned manufacturing company established in 1950’s that enjoyed an exceptional position in the market. Of late, the company started struggling for survival in the phase of huge competition. After assessment, the management had decided to replenish its general manager (Quality) with a new one, Varun Mitra (Mitra). Mitra showed excellent improvement in one of the company’s production units which is the reason why he was appointed as the head of the quality department of the company. After research, Mitra decided to implement ISO 9000 and consolidate the gains after its implementation. In the long run, he had plans to implement Total Quality Management (TQM). The implementation of ISO 9000 clarified roles and responsibilities of the employees within the company. The employees became more involved, motivated, committed, accountable and organised, which resulted in the improvement of the work culture.
