The performance excellence process facilitates self-evaluation and improvement of current processes by identifying strengths and opportunities for improvement within your organization. The evaluation criteria for this process is the same as the Baldrige National Quality Program Criteria for Performance Excellence (Baldrige Criteria), using seven categories:Leadership; Strategic Planning; Customer and market Focus; Measurement, Analysis, and knowledge Management; Human Resource Focus; Process Management; and Business Results.
The Criteria have been used for the past 15 years by thousands of organizations across the US to stay abreast of competition and improve performance. The IRPE process will help your organization, no matter what type or size, implement an integrated approach to organizational performance excellence that results in
(1) delivery of ever-improving value to customers, contributing to marketplace success;
(2) improvement of overall organizational effectiveness and capabilities; and
(3) organizational and personal learning.
Award winning applicants must provide evidence of systematic processes and continuous improvements, which are critical for sustained success.
