Commitment to Quality
Scottish Autism & the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM)
A drive for continuous improvement is embedded in the culture at Scottish Autism as we strive for excellence both as an employer and in the services we provide to people with autism across Scotland.
The EFQM Excellence Model is a business excellence framework designed to help organisations strive towards excellence. EFQM is currently used by over 30,000 businesses across the world.
Regardless of sector, size, structure or maturity, organisations need to establish appropriate management systems in order to be successful. The EFQM Excellence Model is a tool to help organisations do this by measuring where they are on the path to excellence, helping them understand the gaps, and stimulating areas for improvement (AFI).
The EFQM Excellence Model acts as a common reference. It provides its users with a set of performance improvement tools in order for them to achieve and sustain business success. The model is regularly reviewed to incorporate new ideas, concepts and learning.
