The above Excellence analytics are quantifiable on a scale, depending on the company’s preferences on how to number that, and it measures the extent a company’s strategists and strategy have unlocked from the capability as underlying in every category.

The main benchmark is a company’s main, and successful, competitor whether it be by category or by sector as a whole, which would put realistic limits on where a company’s ranking lies in the market.


The best way to understand a company’s Excellence is by distributing quantitative surveys to:

• Clients who have used their services and the services of other competitors (recom mended),
• Stakeholders who have a wider picture of how things are operating, both internally and externally,
• Operational employees/ex-employees who know the ins and outs of the company’s processes, and
• External third party business consultants who analyzed the company and other companies using the framework.
