The EFQM Excellence Model

Used as a strategic evaluation tool, the EFQM Excellence Model offers a holistic view of the organization, highlighting its strenghts and areas for improvement. Used as a benchmarking tool, the Model will show how an organization compares to its competitors and other leading organizations. Used as a management tool, it will help set the performance and competency objectives of the organization.

The EFQM Excellence Model provides a holistic tool for assessing how effective you are in developing and delivering a stakeholder focused strategy. The four result areas focus on what's important to the four key stakeholder groups (Business, Customer, People, Society).

At its simplest level, the Model is a cause and effect diagram. If we want to achieve a different result, we need to change something we do within the organisation.  The Model provides a framework for understanding which levers we need to pull in order to achieve the results we want.  It helps us understand the role each part of our organisation needs to play in effectively implementing our strategy; whether that’s in an SME, a school or a global company.

And because what is considered excellent today will only be considered as adequate tomorrow, there is a continual improvement loop, feeding back the learning from the results achieved and using creativity and innovation to drive increased value for all the stakeholders.
