EFQM: Journey to Excellence (J2E)

Why Attend

What is the definition of excellence? What are the fundamental concepts that organizations need to embody in order to become excellent? Are there criteria for excellence that an organization can use to assess itself? How to ensure continuous improvement across all aspects of the organization? The EFQM excellence model was developed to answer all of the above questions. In this course, we will explain the EFQM excellence model and its 3 main components. Participants will be able to review, reflect on and practice each component in a group environment. Upon completion, participants will be able to assess their organizations’ level of excellence and determine areas for strategic improvement.
