SIQ Management Model

SIQ Management Model is a so-called excellence model, now available in English. Very simplified, excellence models aim to support an organization to do the ”right things” in the ”right way” and achieve success.

By ”right things” is meant products; goods and services that the organization’s stakeholders, customers and users demand and value. By ”right way” is meant that the organization has and constantly develops appropriate working methods and processes to deliver ”right things”.

How has the SIQ Management Model been designed?

Excellence models and specifically the SIQ Management Model are based on the idea that it is via the application of different working methods that results are achieved. The model is built on the principle that given working methods provide certain given results and if other results are required, working methods need to be further developed.

Working methods/enablers

  • How we work
  • Affects results


  • Facts and figures
  • Indicates the performance of the organization in the present, past and projected future

The model’s three cornerstones


Success factors

Culture consists of five success factors that are characteristic for leading organizations. These factors have been defined based on research and practice:

  • Create value with customers and stakeholders
  • Lead for sustainability
  • Involve motivated employees
  • Develop value-creating processes
  • Improve the organization and create innovations


The SIQ Management Model consists of the areas that have the greatest impact on an organization’s results. The areas focus on customers and stakeholders, management, employees and processes. By developing its working methods in these areas, an organization strengthens its culture and its results.



Systematics is a way of asking questions that provide insight into how one’s own organization works. It is only when we become aware of how we do something that we can improve what we do.
