Excellence
Scope of the Journal
In the 21st century, companies have to excel in their business practices in order to compete in
global markets. Business excellence is the application of quality management strategies,
techniques and tools to achieve the world-class performance in managing business. The best
performance in business can be realised by identifying suitable performance measures and
metrics, systematically measuring the performance, comparing the performance with the best-in-
class performing companies and then eventually determining the best practices and their effective
implementation framework. Some of the best practices should include continuous and
breakthrough improvement, proactive management, and management by objective and facts.
There are several successful tools that could be employed for business excellence and some of
them include balanced scorecard, six sigma, process reengineering, supply chain management,
and project management.
