Baldrige is a performance excellence framework designed to improve organizational performance and get sustainable results.
Writing a Baldrige Application
This course is focused on the tools and techniques your organization can use to write an application that will address the Baldrige Criteria. Participants will understand the criteria, what IRPE/Baldrige Examiners are looking for and how to communicate that information in their application. Participants will write portions of their application in class and get real-time feedback to learn and improve their overall application.
During this session, you will learn you how to use the Baldrige framework to understand your organization and help it achieve long-term success. Participants will prioritize areas of improvement and create steps they can take to build and/or sustain their organization.
