The Principles of Excellence: Baldrige 101 – online workshop session 1

October 24, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Today, organizations continue to experience challenges like never before: staffing shortages, inflationary pressure & economic uncertainty, managing a virtual/hybrid workforce, navigating supply chain issues, and managing through accelerating change are but a few of the many challenges facing today’s leaders.  But – with the complexity of organizations – where does one start? How do you know on which areas to focus? And how to do you sustain the improvement over time?

The Performance Excellence Network is pleased to announce a powerful workshop: The Principles of Performance Excellence: Baldrige 101.  The workshop will be hosted online and will be facilitated by Michael Garner of Momentum, a Minnesota-based consulting firm.

The Baldrige framework provides a systems perspective for continuous improvement and advancing performance excellence. The Baldrige “Criteria for Performance Excellence” — which were revised in 2023! — reflects the “leading edge of validated management practice,” against which any organization can measure itself to identify and prioritize improvement opportunities.  This workshop will walk through the Baldrige Framework, will provide examples of tools and approaches that align with Baldrige, will “connect the dots” by showing how other improvement tools complement Baldrige, and will explore best practices from other organizations on the journey to excellence.

Workshop based on the new 2023-24 Baldrige Criteria.  If you are interested in becoming an Examiner for the WIsconsin Forward Award program, Baldrige 101 is an excellence prerequisite.  But this workshop is open to anyone wanting to learn more about the power of this Framework!

Cost is $325 for members ($650 for non-members). Discounts available for teams of 3-4 from the same organization registering at the same time ($300) as well as teams of 5+ ($275).  One copy of the Baldrige “Criteria for Performance Excellence” book is included.  Please let us know if you would like to be invoiced for this workshop.  REGISTER HERE

Explore this validated framework to help you navigate today’s challenges — surviving today and thriving tomorrow!
