Blue Belt Evaluation Questionnaires

Evaluation of organisational and management practices



Blue belt evaluations are relatively fast evaluations: from 20 to 50 questions or "good practices" or from 30 to 60 minutes to carry them out.


They are of two types:
  • focused on a specific area: the detail level is then important and makes it possible to precisely identify the strengths and weaknesses of the scope. They must be carried out by persons with a very good knowledge of the scope or part of the scope
  • concern a rather broad field: this evaluation makes it possible to identify the main strengths and weaknesses of the scope in a short period of time. They can be carried out by people with a minimum knowledge of the scope assessed
