The Enterprise Excellence Assessment provides insights on the current maturity of your organisation by benchmarking against recognised Enterprise Excellence principles and practices. We use the assessment insights to develop and execute an implementation programme to deliver sustainable customer results for your organisation.
What do we assess?
Our assessments look into key enterprise excellence systems that businesses should strive to be mature in to become a world-class organisation, and/or achieve the much-coveted Shingo Prize of Operational Excellence. The systems assessed are apart of the 3 proportionate section of the Enterprise Excellence Model:
PURPOSE– Assessing and improving the essential strategic systems required to be deployed across the business.
PROCESS– Assessing and improving ‘your’ core and enabling processes required to operate effectively.
PEOPLE– Assessing and improving the impact of behaviour and dialogue required to create an improvement culture.
The framework model
How do we assess maturity?
The other intersections and centre circle of the Enterprise Excellence model is what we use as criteria to assess the maturity of each system:
ALIGN– Assessing if objectives and standards exist are fully aligned to strategic needs and are adhered-to with discipline at every level.
ENGAGE– Assessing if all relative stakeholders fully understand why “we need to do this”, what their roles are, and are people fully supported and coached.
RESULTS – Assessing if there is a comprehensive set of system goals in place with expectations frequently exceeded and goals stretched by the teams.
IMPROVE– Assessing if the system is systematically reviewed at business and team level for effectiveness with governance plans owned and completed.
The Enterprise Excellence model has been continuously developing over a number of years and has both academic rigour and results-based proven practice from a variety of business sectors. The assessment conducted by a licenced facilitator is aligned to The Shingo Model of Enterprise Excellence and can act as a benchmark if the business is looking to pursue a Shingo Award in the future.
