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 you are at today, so you can map where you are going tomorrow.

A Rapid Assessment is a 1/2 day workshop with a few select senior and mid-management people, led by an Excellence Canada Lead Assessor to establish the current state of your organization across specific key areas of focus.

Working collaboratively, the Rapid Assessment is designed to:

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


  • A report summarizing key strengths and opportunities noted during the Rapid Assessment
  • Recommended path forward for your organization with a high-level action 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
