Abstract: In order to achieve excellence, organizations need to be aware of the impact of the individual criteria on each other and also the analysis of relationships between Enabler criteria and Results criteria. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the relationships between Enablers and Results in the EFQM Excellence Model applied in a Vocational Training Corporation (VTC) in Jordan. To this end, all the EFQM model data of the Vocational Training Corporation (VTC) was collected. Research method used for this article is descriptive, where Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was used to assess the relations between the criteria. The results confirm the previous findings and shows that Enablers are strongly related to the Results. All the Enabler criteria contribute to Results improvements, so a balanced approach in the development of Enabler criteria allows organizations to obtain an optimal gain from the implementation of the EFQM Excellence Model.
