Relationship between EFQM and TQM

The EFQM model is not better, just more comprehensive. TQM is one of the methods to manage your procedures, while the EFQM addresses procedures as a part of the model.
EFQM model is more concerned with what the organisation does, how it does it, why does it do it that way, and what does it do with the outcome or results.
TQM only falls into the realm of "HOW you do it" - procedures, satisfying only a few requirements of the EFQM. EFQM does not judge you on whether or not you use TQM or any other methods, it's mainly concerned with how effective it is with your organisation, and what the outcome is - i.e. positive or negative trends and results, and finally, whether or not procedures or work "approaches" are being assessed and reviewed based on results. Completely different things.

Consequently, you can't really say or claim that EFQM is better or worse than TQM, because they're completely different things. EFQM model is definitely more comprehensive and addresses the organisation as a whole.
