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.
