Building Company Performance to Baldrige Standards


2 locations available

Program Description

The Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence is the best roadmap to business excellence available today. There are three versions of the criteria, aimed at specific groups: Business, Education, and Healthcare. Criteria platforms look at these groups from a systems perspective to understanding performance in management.

Companies who have received the Baldrige National Quality Award have consistently outperformed the S&P 500 by at least 3 to 1. The Criteria provide a results-focused framework which will benefit any organization, whether they pursue the award or not. So where does a company start?

This four-hour course will give you an overview of what it takes, the criteria and more.

Participants Will Learn:

  • How to understand and use the criteria.
  • How to perform a self-assessment of their company or organization.
  • How to identify opportunities for improvement.

Participants receive course materials covering Baldrige standards and assessment criteria. The Center for Executive & Professional Development provides a certificate of completion.
