     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 2021 includes:

    • Sept 8-9 Examiner Training and Orientation (returning examiners need to attend Sept 10th only)
    • Oct 25-28 Consensus Week

    • Site Visits (Oct 28-Nov 20) 3-5 days on site with the application you are assigned
