BPIR Tip of the Month – Business Excellence Models

This area of the web-site allows  users to navigate the databases through a choice of business excellence models (Malcolm Baldrige Model, EFQM Excellence Model, Singapore Quality Award Model, Canadian Framework for Business Excellence, and an overview generic model). Navigation via the models can be used to look at specific categories that correspond to areas within their organisation that have been identified as in need of improvement, or to specific areas of personal interest. Using the model categories to navigate will quickly and effectively lead the user to the information we have researched so far in relation to the areas in question.

Voice of the customer provides many insights

This article describe customer loyalty management by Healthy Directions, a natural health and supplements firm. The organisation began a `Voice of the Customer` programme by emailing a weekly product survey. The survey provided powerful feedback that guided loyalty strategy and encouraged repurchasing of products. It also enabled Health Directions to improve labelling on products to ensure that consumers understood when to take supplements and thereby improve product efficacy. Automated systems including text analytics were used to enhance the Voice of the Customer programmes and this led to many actionable day to day insights.The programme repidly became an inseperable part of Healthy Direction`s operations.
