Find out more about this training course


Leaders for Excellence training course is especially designed for managers who want to understand and apply the EFQM Excellence Model within their working environment. Using real application documents and simple effective tools, participants will learn how to identify areas for improvement and adopt a structured approach to effectively address them. This training is linked to building the EFQM Management Document, a simple way to documenting your organisation against the EFQM Model.

This document provides a good overview of the organisation that can be used internally and externally. The Leaders for Excellence training has two levels of accreditation.

An additional certification, "EFQM Leader for Excellence - Level 2", will be given to participants who, within a year of the training, successfully complete within their organisation: a DMAIC improvement project or a self-assessment using the Business Excellence Matrix.
