Demystifying Baldrige

This workshop will take the mystery out of Baldrige, explaining what it is and how you can use it to achieve great results in your organization. First, you’ll learn about the Baldrige Framework – the Baldrige Core Values, the Baldrige Criteria (i.e., the Organizational Profile and Baldrige Categories), and the Scoring System – and apply what you learn through exercises that relate the Criteria to your own organization. Then the focus will shift to showing you how to implement Baldrige in your organization, including what it takes to lead the effort.
