Ministry of Higher Education of Oman continuous it's Journey to Excellence!
September 2017: After the successful pilot phase in Spring 2017 the Ministry started its second wave of the Journey to Excellence in September 2017 with EFQM Self-Assessments in three Directorates General, in the Minister’s Office, and in the Undersecretary’s Office. Again, Lean Project Management trainings were conducted, followed by ten Excellence projects. These projects will be finished and ready for deployment by January 2018. There are clear indications so far that these Excellence projects will lead to substantial, annual costs savings, and will result in better work quality.
The start of this successful Journey to Excellence was conducted under the guidance of Dr. Karl J. Koller, international Excellence expert and EFQM advisor/trainer from the Institute for Total Quality Management (ITQM), Zurich, Switzerland.

The EFQM L4E and the LPM-QIMT Training gave me know-how and skills not only about what to change but also how to change.

I would strongly recommend the EFQM Training to any company desiring to achieve Excellence in their business. The workshop from ITQM was well conducted and was successful in achieving its objectives.

Successfully attending the EFQM Training has helped me not only to realize the significance of change but to understand the importance of doing it right. The training days were very rich with information about how to lead the Excellence Journey of any organization. Dr. Koller delivered a very professional training. I am looking forward to applying my newly gained know-how in the workplace.
