Section 1: Introduction to Excellence Without Borders(EWB)
Background of the Project The project Excellence Without Borders (EWB) is undertaken as a globalstudy of how Business Excellence (BE) custodians function. BE custodians pioneer the BE initiatives in their respective countries/ regions/sectors. National/ regional/ sectoral strategies of BE will be evaluated in the project. A number of countries have BE custodian organisations. 55 countries havebeen identified to have 65 active BE awards and 18 have some BE initiatives. However, several countries still do not have BE initiatives.

Aim of the ProjectTo conduct a global study on the design, deployment and impact ofnational BE programsIt was originally intended to include 30 countries in this study. The project hascurrently 35 countries participating.
Objectives of the ProjectThe Primary Objectives of the project are to identify how BE Custodians:- Design their BE frameworks;Deploy their BE frameworks (consisting of “awareness”; “application” and“recognition”.Support the design and deployment of their BE frameworks; andMeasure the success of their BE frameworks.
Objectives of the ProjectThe Secondary Objectives of the project are to:- Identify best practices in how BE custodians design and deploy their BEframeworks, support the design and deployment and measure the BE frameworksuccess.An Additional Objective is to: Determine the impact of BE globally (from the results reported by BE custodians).
The Project Excellence Without Borders wasofficially launched on 18 July 2018https://www.excellencewithoutborders.org/
Academic Significance of the Project Existing literature is more focused on the BE models/ frameworks, theirdesign and their impact in certain countries/ regions/ sectors or industries. The study is focused on how the BE custodians function; what strategiesmake BE custodians more successful than others. How certain BE strategies adopted by the BE custodians impact their BEoutcomes. A comprehensive study on national/ regional/ sectoral strategies for BEinitiatives.
Practical Significance of the Project A report will be provided to the participating BE custodians in order to sharethe findings. The findings of this study would assist BE custodians in improving their BEactivities. This study would benchmark BE custodians’ practices, services and resultsthus laying down a map for developing effective national/ regional/ sectoralBE programs A better alignment of custodian BE activities with BEF principles, thusraising the quality and consistency of BE programs worldwide.
Methodological Significance of the Project EWB is a global level study. Thorough surveys and follow up interviews of national/ regional/ sectoral BEcustodians seek in-depth knowledge of the participating organisation in asmuch detail as possible. CEO/ Directors are the participants of the study. The study involves multiple sample i.e. among the BE custodianorganisations, BE user organisations and BE assessors. The study follows a rigorous instrument validation method.

Sampling and Sample Size Participation in the project is voluntary and enabled through invitation. 35 countries are currently participating in the study. The participating BE custodian are requested to arrange for 20 organisationsusing BE and 20 BE assessors. The project has acquired the support of the Global Excellence Models (GEM)Council.
