Even the longest journey starts with a single step. The EFQM Committed to Excellence is designed to help ensure that first step is a step in the right direction.


Many people think that implementing the EFQM Excellence Model is a long, complex and expensive process. However, that isn’t necessarily true. Implementing the Model can be as simple or as complex as you choose to make it.


Any organisation can be recognised through an assessment based on the EFQM Excellence Model. Recognition schemes are all about celebrating achievement and creating enthusiasm for progress. EFQM assessment is a great way to motivate your people and encourage systematic improvement. It provides a focus for learning and training. External assessments can serve as milestones during a long term programme and demonstrate achievement to your people, suppliers and customers.
