This recognition pyramid is the best example
of how several hundred organisations from a wide variety of sectors are
improving step by step on the path towards business Excellence.
Basque Quality Award
ISO certification has traditionally been the first step in this recognition
scheme as a base for further recognition using the EFQM Excellence model.
More than one hundred organisations have obtained a Commitment to Excellence Diploma
after self-assessment and an improvement plan drawn up with external support.
Additionally, over 165 organisations have been awarded the Silver Q (400+ points)
or Gold Q - Basque Quality Award (500+ points) after a rigorous external assessment
process against the EFQM business Excellence model, similar to the European Quality Award process.
On the 40 Gold Q organisations, 13 have been recognised as finalists or
prize winners in the EEA, including large companies, SMEs
and public sector organisations. EUSKALIT encourages organisations to obtain
higher external recognition, but the main target is to contribute to their
continuous improvement and competitiveness.
