As the administrator of the Business Excellence (BE) initiative, SPRING Singapore has developed and strengthened its international networks through the years. Through these networks, SPRING is developing a stronger recognition of BE among the international community.
Global Excellence Model (GEM) Council
SPRING Singapore is a member of the Global Excellence Model (GEM) Council. The members of the GEM Council are the guardians of the Excellence Models across the world. Through a formalised approach for sharing their knowledge, experience and information, the GEM Council has created a global fraternity in the field of Excellence. As the administrator of the BE Awards, SPRING Singapore’s affiliation with the GEM Council ensures that Singapore's BE framework reflects the world’s best management principles and practice.
Asian Productivity Organization (APO)
The Asian Productivity Organization (APO) was established in 1961, with the mission of contributing to the sustainable socioeconomic development of Asia and the Pacific through enhancing productivity. Its vision is to be the leading international organisation on productivity enhancement, enabling APO economies to be more productive and competitive by 2020.
In 2009, SPRING Singapore was designated by the APO as its Centre of Excellence (COE) for Business Excellence.
As the APO COE, SPRING Singapore has carried out a wide variety of activities to achieve these objectives. These include:
- Facilitating best practice sharing and profile of leading organisations participating in national business excellence or quality awards programmes in the region internationally
- Developing the competence of business excellence stakeholders (e.g., assessors, consultants etc.) in APO member economies
- Initiating research on business excellence to identify needs, develop appropriate approaches, and assess impact
SPRING provides a variety of learning and networking opportunities for the BE community across a number of different platforms throughout the year.
