Excellence refers to the ability of an organisation to continuously improve the outcomes desired by its diverse stakeholders. Organisations that aspire to Excellence use the guidance of Excellence Models at all levels of decision-making to achieve its targets and improve stakeholder perception of value.
An Excellence Model is an integrated leadership and management system that describes the elements essential to organisations sustaining high levels of performance. It enables any organisation to clarify the factors inhibiting or accelerating organisational advancement and provides a roadmap to implement targeted strategies. It provides the umbrella to integrate and align diverse frameworks, methodologies, tools, management systems and approaches to deliver success over the long-term.
Thrive Plus offers three training options to develop the capability of individuals to leverage the guidance of Excellence Models with a focus on the Australian Business Excellence Framework (ABEF).
