Sad News of Prof. Yoji Akao's Passing

Contact Us


1928 - 2016


It is with deep sadness that I share the news of the death of Prof. Yoji Akao, our Honorary President, on 24th October 2016.

Yoji Akao is the founder of QFD. His passion with and his dedication to QFD is greatly respected. His humility, kindness, enthusiasm, sincerity, caring heart and beautiful spirit had deeply touched the heart of every one who knows and who had met him. We are grateful for the time we had with Prof. Akao. The memory of him will always be in our hearts.

As we celebrate the life of Prof. Akao, let us join the family in mourning a departed world quality guru.
