Insights on Excellence from ASQE

What is Insights on Excellence®?

ASQE’s Insights on Excellence® (IoE) Benchmarking Tool establishes a global data set of organizational performance excellence across eight categories of criteria: Operations, Voice of the Customer, Workforce, Leadership, Strategy, Technology, Measurements & Results, and Barriers & Disruptors.

Survey participation in the IoE Benchmarking Tool is an exclusive benefit of ASQE Organizational Membership, but the benchmarking results are compiled annually by ASQE to create industry- and category-specific reports that are available to members and nonmembers of both ASQ and ASQE.

ASQE's new Organizational Membership levels feature the leading benefit of access to the IoE Benchmarking Tool, coordinated with member-exclusive events like the Ascend Virtual Workshop series and Excellence Roundtable that dive deep into key IoE research takeaways, and provide networking opportunities with quality thought leaders across industries.
