     The year 2020 will likely go down in history as a year of great change that pushed us beyond what we thought was possible.  Join the IQC’s virtual round table on Thursday, August 20th, 2020 to share how your business is changing and adapting.

    Have you and your employees discovered that working from a home office can be more productive?  Have you been able to focus on some overdue projects for which you had not found time?  Have you created new products and services? Has your sales process changed?  How will you continue to capitalize on the momentum that has been created?  What additional changes do you see in your future?

    Some things to think about that you could share:

    •  What have you done that you’ve never done before?
    •  Where have you innovated in a way you never thought possible?
    •  What are some lessons learned?
    •  How do you effectively manage change?

     Join us for a unique experience to learn about Iowa organizations and provide them feedback as they continue on their Baldrige Journey.  Many have said this experience is like getting an MBA in just 4 months.

    Being an examiner is a core step in deepening your skills and understanding of the Baldrige framework.

    As an examiner, you will learn the skills of being an examiner, be assigned an applicant from Iowa with a team, perform individual review of the applicant.  The team then gathers during consensus week to determine the initial feedback that is then verified on site with the applicant.

    Training in 2020 includes:

    • Sept 9-10 Examiner Training and Orientation
    • Oct 5-8 Consensus Week
    • Site Visits (Oct 12-Nov 20) 3-5 days on site with the application you are assigned
