Rapid Assessment

Rapid Assessment

Management consensus and support is vital for the success of any organizational initiative but especially when undertaking an enterprise-wide continual improvement journey. A Rapid Assessment establishes consensus about where your Leaders believe you are today against a selected Excellence Canada Standard, so you can map where you are going tomorrow.

A Rapid Assessment is a ½-day workshop with 6-8 selected senior and mid-management leaders, facilitated by an Excellence Canada Lead Assessor to establish the current state of your organization across specific key areas of focus.


  • Create leadership team consensus about where the organization sits against a specific standard and level, the first step towards planning for implementation, certification, and subsequent market recognition
  • Identify your organization’s key strengths and any key gaps or opportunities for improvement
  • Build consensus on next steps and the path forward


  • A brief report summarizing key strengths and opportunities noted during the Rapid Assessment
  • Recommended path forward for your organization with a high-level milestone plan
  • Presentation of the report to senior management
  • Level of organizational readiness to apply for certification and national recognition through the Canada Awards for Excellence program (if desired)

Note: The Rapid Assessment does not result directly in certification and award recognition but is an important strategic planning step
