Fast change is now the business norm, by the time you solve your current issue the new challenge has already arrived. And although most of the challenges of today’s business are rather common in many sectors, organisations tend to face them on their own. It’s surprising how in this greatly connected, global world it is still hard to find the inspiration and the knowledge you need. With all the information pouring out of your computer pages it is still hard to know what is really happening out there in today’s business world, what is happening in another sector, are they facing similar challenges, or have they solved them already? how did they do that? Can I learn from their experience? Who should I talk to about it?
To help you face these challenges EFQM has created a diverse, global network of organisations. EFQM is a business hub where organisation from around the globe come together to learn, share and innovate using the EFQM Excellence Model as a compass.
We will help you face these challenges by connecting you with other organisations in our network and helping you to develop your people and redesign your organisation thank to cross-sector learning.
