The required three basic steps for implementing the Framework are:

  • Self-assessment
  • Analysis
  • Improvement Planning and Implementation

The International Consortium has developed a number of tools and resources to assist court in taking these steps.

Thinking of Implementing the International Framework for Court Excellence?  provides an overview of these three steps.

A Model Agenda includes an illustrative agenda and a PowerPoint slide deck for a one-day-and-a-half workshop on the Framework:


Day 1 (Half Day) Unit 1: Introduction to the IFCE

Unit 2: How the IFCE Can Be Used

Unit 3: Court Excellence Self-Assessment Questionnaire

Day 2 (Full Day)

Unit 4: Measuring Court Performance

Unit 5: The Continuous Quality Improvement Cycle

Unit 6: Change Management in the Court Environment

Unit 7: Conclusion and Final Thoughts

Teaching the International Framework for Court Excellence is a “how-to” (“train the trainers”) guide for instructors, facilitators, organizers, and program developers of a one-and-a-half training program on the Framework.  It prepares the potential trainers to effectively teach a workshop covering the concepts and tools of the Framework.
