Major Research Project on Awareness and Use of Business Excellence – Website Launched & Participants are Signing Up

August 10, 2018 by ahmed

The project Excellence Without Borders (EWB) has been launched by the Centre for Organisational Excellence Research (COER). The project will involve and engage Business Excellence (BE) custodian organisations from around the world. BE custodians are the organisations that are responsible for carrying out BE activities such as disseminating, facilitating and awarding BE in their respective regions.

The project will investigate the design, deployment and impact of National/Regional/Sectoral Business Excellence (BE) programs. This research will help BE Custodians to learn from each other and strengthen national approaches to business excellence. As a result, it is envisaged that more organisations will become aware of and apply business excellence principles and practices leading to greater socio-economic benefits across the globe.

Currently the participant custodian organisations are reviewing the surveys and the methodology of the project so that they can provide the research team with useful feedback and comments. Following the incorporation of these comments, the custodian organisations will assist in distributing the surveys to clients and evaluators and also complete a survey on behalf of their own organisation. Learn more about the terms of reference of the project here.

21 BE custodian organisations have already signed up to the project since invitations were issued on 19th July with more registering each week. The Global Excellence Models (GEM) Council are providing in-principle support to the project. The project team will be giving a presentation on the project to the GEM Council Meeting in Sydney on 29 August. Following this the team will attend the Australian Evaluator Training, 30 August, and 2018 Excellence Conference and 30th Anniversary Celebration of the Australian Excellence Awards (to register for this conference click here).

The initial findings of the project will be shared at the Global Organisational Excellence Congress in Abu Dhabi from 10-12 December 2018.
