Regardless of sector, size or nature of your business, you will benefit from effective use of the ‘Excellence Model’. The EFQM model is a practical tool which helps organisations to identify shortfall in performance and establish where best to focus continuous improvement initiatives.
There are many approaches to achieving sustainable business improvement in organisational performance by using the EFQM model. There is evidence from the British Quality Foundation (BQF) that clearly shows that the Business Excellence Model, when implemented effectively, can dramatically improve financial performance and customer satisfaction.
Alan Fletcher Solutions provides support and guidance in helping organisations to identify, implement and monitor improvement across a range of activities relating to people, process and change.
Alan first became involved in the EFQM (European Foundation of Quality Management) model in the mid-1990s whilst at BT plc. Alan believes that the EFQM Model is an excellent approach to help business owns and Directors achieve business improvement year on year.
“Excellence” evolved from the Quality Control era of the 1940s and 1950s, the introduction of Quality Circles first popular in the 1960s, the introduction of BS 5750 (now ISO 9001) in 1979 and the launch of Total Quality Management in the 1980s.
TQM addresses topics including continuous improvement, customer focus and employee engagement. In the late 1980s leading European industrial leaders met on a regular basis which led to the launch of the EFQM Model in September 1991. In the UK the British Quality Foundation (formed in 1993) exists to help all businesses (FTSE 100 companies, public sector and SMEs) to improve how their organisations perform. The BQF also runs the UK Excellence Awards.
Alan Fletcher has worked with organisations to improve their business performance using the EFQM model as the basis for identifying and introducing improvement teams focused on delivering change and on-going improvement.
