Abstract

The Global Engineering Design Team (GEDT) is an experience sponsored by University of Leeds and Arizona State University to give qualified undergraduates an international non-collocated design team assignment. This is the third year of the programme and in this document, it is examined with respect to the 9 areas of the European Foundation for Quality Management's (EFQM) Business Excellence Model (BEM), a framework commonly used in business self-evaluation in the UK. The 9 areas reviewed are: leadership, policy and strategy, people, partnerships and resources, processes, people results, customer results, society results and key performance results. The overall evaluation shows how the GEDT has made strides in all 9 areas, yet still needs some specific improvements for effectiveness in the future.
