Organisational excellence is a philosophy for enabling organisations to deliver sustainable high performance. It is built on key principles, practices and methodologies, tools and techniques.
Key principles and practices include:
• Outside-in thinking – acquiring a deep understanding of customer needs and experiences to drive strategy, organisational design and improvement
• Change and engagement thinking – understanding the employee experience and believing that outcomes are improved when people who are affected by the changes are engaged to work on the system
• Continuous learning and improvement – developing the drive to continually improve and innovate.
Putting these values and principles into practice involves measuring, understanding and improving customer and employee experience and how they interact. An organisation’s agility is dependent on the way people are enabled to read the need for change and to respond rapidly with sustainable improvements.
