Level 3 Application Development Workshops

VG Strategies LLC Management Consulting is pleased to present “on-demand” one-and-a-half day Level 3 Application Development Workshops.

Developing a Level 3 Application may feel like assembling a puzzle. Our goal is to make it easier for you to prepare a well-written Level 3 Application to your local performance excellence award program. Bring your leadership team and your Level 3 Application development team!

Many state/regional performance excellence award programs offer a Level 3 Award. The Level 3 Award is a slimmed down version of the Level 4 Award (full award). Think of the Level 3 Award as “Baldrige Lite.” In the Level 4 Award, organizations answer all the Baldrige Criteria questions. For Level 3 Awards, applicants answer a subset of the Baldrige Criteria questions – about 75% of the full Baldrige questions.

Submitting a Level 3 Application to your local performance excellence award program can lead to valuable feedback about methods to enhance your organization’s performance. However, many organizations find the Level 3 Criteria questions somewhat ambiguous.
