The Excellence Toolkit
The Excellence Toolkit offers you a simple, practical yet effective way of assessing your organisation against the internationally renowned EFQM 2013 Excellence Model©.
It will also help you to develop plans for improvement and to identify where you are in relation to external recognition options such as the EFQM Levels of Excellence, Investors in Excellence or our own Marques of Excellence scheme. If you are far advanced on the journey to Excellence, the Toolkit output can be used to help entry to regional or even national Excellence Awards.
Following the success of the generic Excellence Toolkit, launched in 2010, North of England Excellence has been commissioned to create sector specific versions of the Toolkit for those working in housing and those working in care.
