The International Team Excellence Award Criteria for Improving Performance

Summary: Team Excellence Award Evaluation Criteria can be used by teams involved with an improvement project. Recent updates to this framework make it a better tool for guiding a team's process and improving results. The criteria consider four key aspects of any improvement project: project selection, analysis of the current situation, development of an action plan for change, and implementation of the change. Additionally, a fifth criterion involves evaluation of the team's presentation. Judges work with a four-point scoring system, which has ratings of "not covered," "unclear," "meets criteria," and "exceeds criteria." The "exceeds criteria" rating was revised to provide clearer guidelines to both teams and judges.
