The Excellence Manifesto

The Excellence Manifesto is a call to action. It calls on all organizations, regardless of size or sector, to publicly commit to the pursuit of excellence. This means striving to achieve optimal results for all stakeholders, continuous improvement, and pursuing a strategy that does not sell out future generations.

My experience with the Institute has been very interesting and uniquely beneficial. The team strives to deliver excellence at every occasion, in every interaction. The members are often in senior positions, with a desire share, and they have a wealth of experience. I have most enjoyed some of the innovative activities such as the gamification events – lots of fun and a new way of learning. I unreservedly recommend BEX to anyone in business. Well done BEX Team!

My membership in BEX has provided me with a wide-open window into the world of business excellence and how to help clients achieve it. While excellence and standards frameworks may be expressed in terms of a model sustained over many years, the knowledge around excellence is constantly evolving, and it’s here where BEX excels. I have found it to be the best resource yet for helping me gain greater clarity on excellence, particularly through the Knowledge base – the Articles, Tools and Blogs have been most helpful. The other great aspect of being a BEX member is the privilege of being part of an excellence community of truly accomplished fellow-members. BEX has greatly strengthened my ability to communicate the benefits and realities of excellence programs to clients in a way that’s meaningful to them.

After booking a BEX event on my calendar, I do everything necessary to safeguard the date. Knowing that BEX will provide a convivial atmosphere in which to meet interesting people from multiple disciplines, I can be certain that I will come away a little richer from the experience. A newly gleaned nugget of wisdom; a new business contact; endless possibilities…

I have been a BEX member for about seven years, and a Recognized Excellence Expert since 2017. John, Matt and Neal are exceptionally competent organizational excellence professionals and a major source of inspiration and trusted advice over the years. They have provided much guidance during my United Arab Emirates’ government excellence surveys, most recently in October 2018. BEX is a wonderful international organization. Its member platform contains many useful articles, which I have shared with colleagues and clients. I strongly recommend that you become a member.
