The Caribbean Centre for Organizational Excellence and Organizational Excellence Specialists (Canada) are working collaboratively to provide a real-time assessment of the current state of organizational excellence for the Caribbean region.
This assessment is designed to measure the extent to which the principles and best management practices, common to high-performing organizations, are prevalent in Caribean organizations.
Questions in the survey are based on the Organizational Excellence Framework (OEF), a model that is based on leading global excellence models that comprise the principles and best management practices common to high-performing organizations. These excellence models have been validated by decades of research that has demonstrated the positive relationship between implementing an excellence model and improving organizational performance.
responding to the
State of Organizational Excellence Survey
The Self-Assessment against the OEF will allow each respondent to rate the degree to which the entity is characterized by these Principles and has deployed the Best Management Practices. If the respondent is not aware of the entity using a particular Practice, it is recommended to provide a low rating. It is important that respondents completing the self-assessment reflect their honest opinion about the current state of the entity. Individual data and information will be held in strict confidence and only aggregate results will be reported.
The assessment is divided into three sections.
The first section collects demographic information about the respondent and the entity.
The second section asks the respondent to use a subjective rating scale and self-assess against the Principles (9).
The third section asks the respondent to use an objective rating scale and self-assess against the Best Management Practices (Micro-size – 51 practices, SML-size – 102 practices) across Key Management Areas.
Throughout the second and third section, there is ample space to provide open-ended comments that further clarify the rating.
