The European Classification Standard® [EC-Standard®] is a standardized management assessment that focuses on strategic entrepreneurship and the enterprise’s ability to anticipate. The EC-Standard® consists of a methodology and the strategic benchmark thereof. A few specific management tools that were developed for the EFBQ provide this methodology with shape and structure:
- EFBQ Questionnaire – an extensive questionnaire in modular form. Parts of it can be used by participants to fill certain gaps in the strategic entrepreneurship.
- EFBQ Quick Start Module – tool for a quick and flexible formulation of a strategic plan. This manual results in a limited number of A-4 sheets, which makes it possible to act quickly with regard to managing and adjusting the organization.
- EFBQ Strategische Vragensets – six sets of questions help the board and/or management team formulate a strategic framework of the organization more concretely.
EFBQ participants are invited to utilize the tools provided, but may also apply for the EFBQ assessment using their own strategic plans.
