One-Day Workshop

Ensure that the first step is in the right direction

Even the longest journey starts with a single step. The EFQM One-Day Workshop 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.

We have designed the One Day Workshop to help a Management Team with no previous experience of using the EFQM Excellence Model take that first step. In one day. Why make it complicated?

Workshop objectives

During the workshop, through a series of practical exercises, you will:

  • Gain a basic understanding of the EFQM Excellence Model, the Fundamental Concepts of Excellence, the 9-box Model and the RADAR logic.
  • Understand how these apply to your organisation.
  • Complete a simple self-assessment of your organisation to establish a baseline.
  • Agree an improvement plan, focused on helping to achieve your strategic goals.

The workshop can be used as a starting point for EFQM Committed to Excellence recognition.

EFQM Quick Check

The Quick Check is a simple self-assessment tool derived from the EFQM Excellence Model 2013. It has been designed to give a quick overview of your organisation’s current capabilities against the EFQM Fundamental Concepts of Excellence.

It assesses the approaches you have in place and determine where the key opportunities for improvement are, based on the maturity of these approaches and their impact on your ability to deliver your strategy.

It is designed as a “first step” on your journey to excellence and the assessment can be completed, with an agreed action plan aligned on your strategy, in about 2 hours.

During the One-Day Workshop, you will complete this assessment for your organisation.

The One-Day Workshop can either be purchased as a “stand alone” session or in combination with the EFQM Committed to Excellence validation visit.
