In June 2017, EFQM launched the new cycle of the EFQM Communities of Practice (CoP) giving the opportunity to EFQM Members to share their experience with others on a specific topic and use this learning to generate new innovative ideas that may benefit the wider community.
One year later, in June 2018, the CoP team members met at a closing meeting hosted by GC Europe in Leuven, Belgium. They presented the outcomes and shared an experience with working on inspiring topics with enthusiastic people. Watch what the people learned and what benefits such initiative can bring to members of the EFQM community.
The Communities of Practice 2017 were dedicated to the following topics:
The purpose of the EFQM CoP 1 “The future of the EFQM Excellence Model” was to contribute towards making the Model fit-for-future. This team has evaluated the future viability of the Fundamental Concepts by studying the megatrends which are reshaping the world of organisations, industries and wider society and investigating how other excellence models and standards react to these movements. In short, this CoP has focused on establishing what evolutions in the current EFQM Excellence Model are needed for the future.

This team has analysed Award-winning organisations in search of examples of great organisational culture. The team has used EFQM’s definition of culture as well as the Edgar Schein’s model as a framework for their analysis. Identified examples have been compared with megatrends to distinguish between great culture and future-proof culture. In short, this CoP has investigated the following questions:

The purpose of the CoP3 “Role model of leaders in Excellent Organisations” was to investigate what are the essential leadership qualities and typical behaviours that role model leaders have in common. In order to create this profile, the team has created a survey which was disseminated throughout the EFQM Excellence Community.
The outcome of this CoP will help leaders to identify and nurture the essential leadership qualities and characteristics in order to “Lead with Vision, Inspiration and Integrity”. The content presented will also steer discussion in the EFQM community as to the kind of leadership qualities that are linked with this Fundamental Concept and how current trends could potentially affect it.
