What is the EFQM Model?
The EFQM Model is a non-prescriptive TQM framework based on nine criteria broken into enablers (what the organization does) and results (what the organization achieves). Enablers drive results, while results provide feedback to enablers.
The EFQM adopts the Total Quality Management idea that the quality control function should take place throughout the entire production process.
The EFQM Model recognizes that there are many approaches to achieving sustainable excellence in all aspects of performance. It is based on the assumption that excellent results with respect to Performance, Customers, People and Society are achieved through Leadership driving Policy and Strategy, that is delivered through People Partnerships and Resources, and Processes.
