|Conference:||11th QMOD Conference. Quality Management and Organizational Development Attaining Sustainability From Organizational Excellence to SustainAble Excellence; 20–22 August; 2008 in Helsingborg; Sweden|
|Abstract:||Purpose: The European Business Excellence Model is nowadays a familiar framework; used for a spectrum of purposes; with the most frequent aim from its full deployment being the attainment of organizational success. The Model’s requirements however involve abstruse management concepts and thus; there is; frequently; a significant variety within the suggested approaches to face the criteria requirements. Although; such integrated business excellence models should not necessarily be of a very prescriptive nature; allowing for deployment latitude among sectors and types of businesses; a more homogeneous basis of suggested approaches to the requirements maybe a welcome basis by both academics and business people.|
Design/methodology/approach: Integration of the known references; stemming from both literature and best practices made available; to form a well defined basic framework of suggested approaches to the Model requirements.
Findings: The findings associated with sub-criterion 1a of the EBEM (“leaders developing the mission; vision and culture”) are being reported in this paper.
Research limitations – Most of the relevant information describing current; applicable business practices is not publicly available; and has to be deduced mainly from responses to questionnaires.
Originality/value: Specific frameworks of suggested approaches for the well known Model requirements have not; as yet; been made available in the literature.
