BQFsnapshot+ has been developed in partnership with British Quality Foundation for their members and others seeking to work with the EFQM Excellence Model and the Balanced Scorecard. View details of BQFsnapshot+ on the BQF website.

The purpose of BQFsnapshot+ is:

  • to provide a framework to improve organisation performance in the context of the 2010 Excellence Model;
  • to enable organisations to monitor the performance of their key performance indicators, regularly;
  • to facilitate involvement in self-assessing the practice and performance of parts of an organisation and/ or the organisation as a whole;
  • to indicate the organisation’s position against the 2010 EFQM Excellence Model.

BQFsnapshot+ is used: by senior management teams and Performance Improvement/ Quality Managers, and consultants.

BQFsnapshot was launched: as version 3.2 in 2002 and updated to BQFsnapshot+ version 4.1 in October 2010 to mirror the 2010 EFQM Excellence Model.

BQFsnapshot+'s core framework:

  • 85 quality statements that represent the practice implicit in the guidance provided by EFQM for the 32 criterion parts;
  • a workbook to enable individuals to note, against the 85 quality statements, their perceptions of strengths, areas for improvement, supporting evidence and a score for each quality statement.

  • improvement action points for each quality statement and an action plan feature that sorts the action points to create overall plans or plans for responsibilities or specific projects;
  • a Balanced Scorecard feature to manage key performance indicators with a KPI performance report;
  • many useful features to collate, manipulate and output the data stored as a result of self-assessment;
