Definition of excellence
Corporate excellence is often described as the outstanding practices in managing the organization and achieving results, all based on a set of fundamental concepts and values.

Excellence has to deal with a lot of skills such as leadership, organizational, communication, motivational interpersonal, etc. Creativity and innovation also has an important role to play and knowledge and competencies are also key. Excellence is not a onetime success but rather a succession of good results and achievements over a long period of time. It is also moving up levels and keeping the paste.

An excellence model is appropriate to use as it deals with all the important factors. Issues like the product (goods and services), employees, customer and partnerships are to be critically considered and analyzed. We can therefore say that excellence is a mind set and as such fit to be effectively achieved effective communication needs to seen throughout the organization. Leadership is the ability to adapt the setting so everyone feels empowered to contribute creatively to solving the problems. Leadership is about solving the problems, which means closing the gap between things as desired and things as perceived.

Creativity and analytical abilities
The capacity to resolve problems easily is determine your level of creativity. According to me, depending on the problems that I have been able to solve, I can rate my creativity at six out of ten. If I can remember, an area where I exhibited some creativity was when a situation happened in one company I worked for. There was only one computer for the whole organization which was a hindrance to the progress of the work. I proposed the purchase of other IT equipment which will fasten the work in the company.
