The journey of performance excellence can be a long and winding road. Many organizations are content to stay in one spot and make the best of their circumstances. But Wisconsin’s Community of Excellence knows we are capable of becoming better tomorrow than we are today, so we take steps forward to become the organizations we believe we can be.
During one very special evening each year, we take a moment to reflect on our progress and celebrate our accomplishments. I’d like to invite you and your entire organization to be a part of this moment. Many organizations across Wisconsin have worked hard to earn this recognition, and we’d like you to hear the story of their journey and what it has meant to customers, employees, and stakeholders.
On November 30, we will hold the 2016 Wisconsin Forward Awards Gala at Monona Terrace in Madison. We’ll be there to greet you at 5:30 p.m. The evening will feature wonderful hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, great networking opportunities, remarks from members of our incredible and generous Board of Examiners and of course, stories about the journey towards excellence from our 2016 applicant organizations. Our evening is expected to conclude around 7:30 p.m.
Show your support for Excellence in Wisconsin. We ask that all 2016 applicant organizations attend, as well as members of our 2016 Board of Examiners. WCPE alumni, excellence enthusiasts, and members of the public are warmly welcomed to join us and show their appreciation for the numerous organizations who have become measurably better.

The Baldrige Framework provides a systems perspective for continuous improvement and advancing performance excellence. The Baldrige “Criteria for Performance Excellence” reflects the leading edge of validated management practice, against which any organization can measure itself to identify and prioritize improvement opportunities. If you are interested in becoming a Wisconsin Forward Award Examiner, new Examiners are strongly urged to take Baldrige 101 as a prerequisite.
