“Baldrige Overview: Achieving Excellence”
Many people new to Baldrige find the Criteria for Performance Excellence overwhelmingly mind boggling.
This one-day workshop helps you and your organization gain a quick understanding of the Criteria. First we demystify the Criteria. Then we explore how the Criteria can be applied in your organization to enhance your performance and achieve sustainable results. Contact us for more information
The “Essence of Baldrige”
The Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence language and terminology can be daunting to understand. With somewhat vague language, over 900 Criteria questions, and 60 defined terms, some people believe reading the Criteria is a great way to remedy insomnia.
In the Essence of Baldrige Workshop, we demystify the Criteria so you can quickly grasp the essence and meaning of the Criteria and its applicability in your organization. Contact us for more information
— Enhancing Your Organization’s Performance Workshops —
“Learn and Drive” Workshop
A great way for senior leaders and managers to obtain knowledge of the Baldrige Criteria is to become a Baldrige examiner. However, leaders are wary of the time commitment – six days of training (including homework), and up to six days evaluating an applicant. The “Learn and Drive” four-day intensive workshop helps senior leaders and managers obtain a working knowledge of the Baldrige Criteria without the Baldrige examiner time commitment. During the Workshop, leaders:
- Assess their own organization using the Baldrige Criteria and comparisons with similar organizations
- Identify opportunities for improvement
- Design specific actions to drive improvement within their organization. Contact us for more information
Examiner Training Workshop
One of the best means of integrating performance excellence in your organization is to train key workforce members to be “internal examiners.”
After training, these “internal examiners” often identify key organizational processes that might benefit from evaluation and improvement.
Our three-day Examiner Training Workshop uses some of the same training methods as the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program. Contact us for more information
Custom workshops are specifically designed for your organization and specific needs.
