Investors in Excellence
This blog post has been produced for the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce as part of the 2022 Growth Through People campaign.
Growth Through People is the Chamber’s annual campaign aiming to help local firms boost productivity and grow through improved leadership and people management skills. In 2022 this involves 8 free webinars and events sharing best practice advice and guidance taking place throughout March, and a Growth Through People conference on 30th March. In addition, throughout the campaign the Chambers will be publishing thought leadership podcasts and blog content such as this.
Thanks to our Headline Partners and Sponsors – Aston University, Birmingham City Council, South and City College Birmingham and the West Midlands Combined Authority - all Growth Through People workshops are free to attend. Interested readers can find out more and register to attend Growth Through People workshops here, and the Growth Through People conference here.
In the world of excellence, everything we do is based on Circles of Excellence. In education, we use a Circle of Excellence covering Scheme of work, Planning, Delivery, and Assessment.
To get from great strategy to superb outcomes in any business, we use A-B-C-D-E-F:
Use a framework for excellence to improve and assess performance.
Agree on What Matters Most with a clear purpose, concise vision, and distinct mission.
Tell everyone what success looks like and what’s expected of them.
Develop strategic objectives for everyone to use to achieve improving performance.
Embed excellence in all activities and exceed expectations consistently.
Get everyone fulfilling the big business objectives.
What are Excellence Circles?
They’re groups of people at different levels of a business who meet regularly to identify, analyse, and solve work-related problems. An excellence circle is a maturing group of people, who are trained to identify, analyse and solve work-related problems and present their solutions to improve the performance of the organisation, and motivate and enrich the work of people.
