Business Excellence Framework

Business excellence refers to "outstanding practices in managing the organization and achieving results based on a set of eight fundamental concepts". These concepts are "orientation, customer focus, leadership and constancy of purpose, management by processes and facts, people development and involvement, continuous learning, innovation and improvement; partnership development, and public responsibility."
The Business Excellence Framework is a structured approach that one can follow to set up management systems and processes which would enable businesses to excel.
