Performance Excellence

"I see the Baldrige process as a powerful set of mechanisms for disciplined people engaged in disciplined thought and taking disciplined action to create great organizations that produce exceptional results."  Jim Collins, Author of Good to Great

Performance Excellence

Where are the current gaps in your organization’s performance?  Where do we start?  Over the last 2 decades, the Iowa Quality Center has witnessed how impactful the Baldrige criteria is for organizations, inside Iowa and across the nation, in their journey toward Performance Excellence. The 7 criteria include the areas of Leadership, Strategic Planning, Customer Relations, Workforce Engagement, Measurement, Analysis and Knowledge Management, Operations and Results.   

While the criteria questions are valuable to assess your organization’s strengths and opportunities for improvement, the answers to the questions guide direction for leaders toward building a culture of continuous improvement.
