Abstract

EFQM excellence model is a world-class quality management framework which is applied as the basis of excellence awards in 26 countries all over the world. Among others, Iranian National Productivity and Business Excellence Award has implemented the EFQM model as the official excellence model since 2003. The implementation of EFQM excellence model, through the national excellence award, is considered as a strategy that is applied by the Iranian manufacturing SMEs to unravel many of their problems. Despite, the number of successful implementations has been too low even after several years of EFQM implementation in the Iranian SMEs. Besides, official research also indicates that about 40 percent of the failures in SMEs have occurred due to their weaknesses in internal operations which can be improved through proper implementation of the EFQM model.
