Organizational Excellence Assessment is a methodology to assess how an organization’s (or department’s) management systems compare against any Excellence Canada Standard. Conducting organizational assessments against an excellence standard is an essential part of measuring progress on your Excellence Journey. Self-assessments should be done every 12-18 months to understand strengths and opportunities so that you can plan your organizational excellence improvement strategy. The assessment methodology taught in this training is the same as the one used by Excellence Canada to verify Canada Awards for Excellence submissions for all our standards at all levels. After you have conducted your self-assessment, your organization will know where you stand against your chosen standard. You will either be ready for a formal Canada Awards for Excellence verification at the level you are ready for, or you will have a list of gaps you need to close first.
