Re: What is the excellence anyway?
Today we have tried to answer on the question posted in the title of this message. Despite we have some knowledge about this subject (quite limited, but we have it) we started coping with it from the very beginning. We put our ideas quite randomly, basing on our own feelings rather than knowledge, and after collecting a huge number of ideas we (with the help of our tutor) grouped it.
Firstly, I was quite sceptical about it, but after a while I realized that this approach reveals some things which had not been clear to me before.
- Itís not possible to give a simple definition to the 3E.
- Trying to create the universal definition to the 3E we traced the way which the creators of EFQM had already passed. It was a really amazing feeling and it was an extremely useful experience.
- The way how EFQM presents its Excellence model is not awkward, as I was prone to think few days ago. Moreover, I realized that this is probably the only way how so complex and holistic theory can be organized and presented.
Today I devoted 2 hours of my life to answering on a very complicated question. Before starting to do it I was not sure if it worth doing, or we should try to find the answer in the relevant literature. I have learnt a very important thing due it. The thing is that even if the question seems very hard and there are not many chances that the right and holistic answer will be found, however, the process of answering is worth doing. It can really help you to become closer to the answer, besides, it can highlight some absolutely new thing which are valuable itself. I will definitely use in my life.
