purchase Impacted by the high standard of global brands in Indiacustomers are experiencing and getting habituated to elevated quality where the efficiency of rational factors is exposed Lets take three sectors where QCW is enjoyed at affordable rates: McDonalds offers an American burger lunch at Rs 25 in air conditionedhygienic setting French Hotel Ibis provides perceptible quality comfort and ambience at three-star hotel rates Toyotas Quality Revolution is setting benchmarks for the automobile industry This QCW illustration shows that in any given categorycustomers have their own or influenced perception of the quality spark Switching to QCW brandscustomers are making several Indian brands ruling the roost in the Licence Raj era lose their market leadership In automobiles or consumer electronicsHindustan Motors or BPLVideoconOnida and Godrej dominated the market till the 1997 Today people willingly pay a higher price for competing foreign brands but theyll haggle with Indian brands in every market segment when QCW is not perceived SonySamsung and LG conquered the consumer electronics marketbringing in new technologycustomer focus and perceivable sparkling quality from reliability (rational factor)functionality and the aesthetic (emotive) edge The clash emerging now is that India is following the lifestyle of developed countries where rational factor efficiency is very high Take a look at QCW illustration Point 3of industries that impose the trend Examples of trendy brands are McDonalds in fast foodLouis VuittonGucciRolex in luxury productsand AppleGoogleNikonFacebookIBMMicrosoftSamsung in technology In personal care its LOrealForbes and Vogue among magazinesin financial institutions HSBCAmerican Expressin apparel ZaraEsprit and Hugo Boss while vehicles coveted are Harley DavidsonBMW and Audi and sports wear Nike and Adidas Through inventions that go against natureWestern society created products and living style that reduce effort and increase comfort for people in every domain Whatever social culture we may followwe cannot ignore the comfort standards provided in the refrigeratorautomobilemobile phonethe lift to Facebook among others in our daily life The more our country developsits obvious well minutely follow the well defined materialistic lifestyle of developed countries So the only choice Indian brands have to sustain in the market is to uplift the rational quality spark Every company has to take into account the customers perception of qualitythe competitive environment and trendy industries that influence the customer My priority in working for Indian companies and their employees is to sensitise them to make infallible the non-visible rational attribute of a product or service Employees have to be trained on QCW beyond any standard quality process To actually achieve quality customers wantthe company has to inspire and control its vendors on the QCW definition with precision in the purchase order Most global brands outsource from China giving precise quality parametersand China delivers accordingly But Indians often criticise Chinese productswhich may not be Chinas fault as they admit theyll compromise quality standards based on the cost the manufacturer bargains for Offering high salariesmultinational companies in India are stringently imposing their proven processes and customer centricity to bring global quality standard Ive heard that Indian professionals are leaving MNCs to return to Indian organisationsthat have since revised their salary structure to keep up with MNCsto get better freedom at work The catch here is if freedom at work means ignoring QCWhow can Indian companies improve According to mebusiness cannot sustainwhether its corporate performancethe brandindustrial product design or organised retailif the quality spark is missing Indian brands need to ignite QCW to ensure repeat purchase and be globally competitive Shombit Sengupta is an

international midfielder Eugeneson Lyngdoh and defender Anas Edathodika would be among the most sought after ones when more than 200 footballers go under the hammer during the Indian Super League Players Draft here tomorrow Ten franchise sides including the two new entrants of Jamshedpur FC and Bengaluru FC will seek to buy the best Indians on offer for the ISL season four which will be starting in November as a five-month long league Top players like Sunil Chhetri Udanta Singh Jeje Lalpekhlua C K Vineeth and Sandesh Jhingan will not be up for grabs as they have been retained by their respective clubs Chhetri and Udanta have been retained by Bengaluru while 2015 edition winners Chennaiyin FC decided to keep Jeje with them this season also India’s defensive bulwark Jhingan and his national team-mate forward Vineeth will continue to play for 2016 runners-up side Kerala Blasters The clubs were allowed to retain a maximum of two senior players from their 2016 squad in addition to upto three U-21 players to fill up the development player quota Eight teams have already signed up 22 domestic players while Delhi Dynamos have opted to begin on a fresh note Both Lyngdoh and Anas who were released by FC Pune City and Delhi Daynamos respectively have been kept at the base price of Rs 110 crores each according to sources Other players in the top price bracket include goalkeeper

have foreigners as out-field players instead of losing out one slot to a goalie The salary cap for each team (both Indian and foreign players) has been set at Rs 18 crores and only a maximum of Rs 125 crores can be utilised to sign overseas players So each team gets a minimum of Rs 55 crore to buy Indian players ISL 2017-18 Player Draft will witness a total 15 rounds The sequence for selection of

scored his first Chelsea hat-trick and Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho began to redeem himself for angling to join Barcelona Here are five things we learned in the Premier League this weekend: Morata showed Chelsea can thrive without Costa Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata celebrates scoring his side’s first goal of the game during the EPL match against Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium Stoke-on-Trent AP When Antonio Conte signed Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid in the close season some critics suggested the Spain striker would not be an adequate replacement for Diego Costa given the unique physical demands of the Premier League Whereas Costa is all snarling aggression and muscular power Morata relies more on movement and subtle technique to outwit defenders But the 24-year-old has made a quick transition to the English game and bagged his first Chelsea hat-trick in Saturday’s 4-0 rout of Stoke City to take his tally for the club to six goals In the week that Chelsea finally agreed a deal to allow Costa to return to Atletico Madrid Morata showed the champions can move on with minimum fuss Spurs must iron out Aurier’s rough edges Serge Aurier’s full Premier League debut for Tottenham Hotspur showcased the best and worst of the controversial Ivory Coast international He got forward well and helped to tee up Christian Eriksen for what proved to be the decisive goal in a 3-2 success at London rivals West Ham United But the Paris Saint-Germain old boy was frequently caught out of position and was sent off with 20 minutes remaining after being shown a second yellow card for needlessly scything down Andy Carroll Tottenham led 3-1 at that stage and had it not been for Aurier they would have seen the game out much more comfortably Coutinho has started his redemption tour Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho celebrates scoring his side’s second goal of the game during the EPL match against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium Leicester AP Less than a month ago Philippe Coutinho was in danger of becoming Public Enemy No 1 at Anfield as the Liverpool play-maker tried to force through a move to Barcelona When Liverpool refused to sell him he was left in a potentially awkward situation But manager Jurgen Klopp has handled the situation deftly treating Coutinho respectfully without giving in to his demands Back in the starting line-up at Leicester City Coutinho showed his class by teeing up Mohamed Salah for Liverpool’s opener before curling in a sublime free-kick that set his side up for a 3-2 win More performances like this and his transfer saga will soon be a distant memory Lukaku has given Manchester United a new dimension By the admission of manager Jose Mourinho Manchester United were not at their fluid best in their 1-0 win at Southampton It was the sort of game United would not have won last season when their league-high 15 draws contributed to a disappointing sixth-place finish But new striker Romelu Lukaku gives them greater cutting edge and his 20th-minute goal settled the game the Belgium striker finishing at the second attempt after Saints goalkeeper Fraser Forster parried his header United have made their best start to a season since 2011-12 and Lukaku is only the second player (after Louis Saha) to have scored six goals in his first six games for the club in the Premier League era Aguero remains a central figure for Man City Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero shoots under pressure from Crystal Palace’s Mamadou Sakho during the EPL match at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester AP The writing appeared to be on the wall for Sergio Aguero at Manchester City last season when Gabriel Jesus’s arrival in January saw him lose his place in the side But an injury to Jesus brought Aguero back into the team and his performances convinced manager Pep Guardiola to begin this season with both players in his starting XI When Guardiola switched to a one-striker configuration against Crystal Palace it was Jesus who made way and he was not missed as Aguero struck in a 5-0 rout that left City top of the table The Argentina striker has now scored 176 goals for City and needs just two more to surpass Eric Brook as the club’s
