  • Use the Business Excellence Matrix to develop an enabler map

Validator Training

This is new!

Are you interested to act as an EFQM Validator for "Committed to Excellence Projects"? Do you want to align your improvement projects with the EFQM Model? Or would you like to learn to use the RADAR methodology to manage and structure your improvement projects? Then this training is for you!

What is an EFQM Validator? An EFQM Validator is officially authorized to recognize and confirm the achievements of organizations going through the Committed to Excellence Recognition scheme of EFQM. Being a validator is a very demanding task. You will need to deal with the time constraint of having to: assess the self-assessment, analyze the quality of the various improvement projects, deliver valuable feedback and a pass/fail verdict at the end of only one day.

After this 1,5 day course, you will be able to:

  • Diagnose how EFQM assessments, and both priority setting and improvement projects are conducted and integrated 
  • Recognize the achievements of improvement project managers and provide feedback
  • Use RADAR logic to structure, monitor and review improvement projects
  • Obtain the official "EFQM Validator" Certificate

This training will be a mix of presentations and discussions, and it will include several practical exercises. During the training, we will simulate parts of the actual Validator process through a real case study to practice your verbal and written skills. Successful delegates will receive the Diploma 'EFQM Validator'.
