The 2013 version aims to ensure that the model stays in tune with the evolving needs of organisations - particularly with respect to sustainability, the development of future talent and a more strategic approach to risk management.
The Excellence Model is used by over 30,000 organisations across Europe and many more beyond and is now recognised as the most widely used, holistic management framework in the world. The new version, which will replace the current 2010 version, will be unveiled at the EFQM Forum in Brussels on 10 October.
David Teale, Chief Executive of North of England Excellence, said: "Ever since its establishment in 1990 the model has been kept fresh and relevant through reqular updates. The 2013 edition will take into account feedback from assessors and others, however it will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary and the basic structure will remain unchanged."
"North of England Excellence - along with the EFQM and BQF - will use the new model from 1 January 2013 and all our documentation will be amended in line with it. Arrangements will be made to familiarise existing assessors and users with the changes while new assessors and users will only be trained using the 2013 model."
