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.

  • I have attended the EFQM Foundation Training by ITQM. It was a very good experience, which I recommend to every person who intends to explore new ways of managerial thinking and to every organization that needs to increase the efficiency and the outcome of its organization. The training was supported with case studies, live examples and documents, which I can refer to and build on, to translate into my day to day work. I am looking forward to attend  the EFQM Assessor Training by ITQM.”
