Last Call: Baldrige Framework and Criteria Seminar January 26 – 27

The Baldrige Excellence Framework empowers organizations of all sizes, in all sectors and industries, to reach their goals, improve their results, and become more competitive.

Led by Mark Blazey, a nationally-recognized Criteria expert, this two-day seminar will provide a detailed analysis of all seven Categories and will help you hone competencies needed to complete or review a WFA or Baldrige application.

Individuals and organizations with some familiarity with the Baldrige Framework as practitioners, examiners and/or applicants will find this seminar of high value, especially organizations planning on submitting a WFA or Baldrige application within the next few years. Those people new to Baldrige will appreciate the interactive table exercises and comprehensive overview of how organizations use the Baldrige Framework to achieve and sustain high performance.
