Examiner Resource Center

Welcome to the Resource Center for the Board of Examiners—one of the most prestigious groups in the nation! Organizations from all sectors of the U.S. economy thank you for your time and expertise in helping them increase their competitiveness and in helping make our country great.

This resource center has been organized to assist you. Separate links are provided to the left to take you directly to tools you will need during the stages of the award process and on the right to aid your development as an examiner.

From 2013 Baldrige Examiners:

"The experience not only improved my analytical and consensus-building skills but also allowed me to interact with a diverse group of individuals from across the globe . . . and my own organization is already benefiting from my new skills."

"Before the training, I thought that I knew what [my organization] needed. . . . I now see not only what we need to do in order to achieve 'world-class' status, but what steps we will have to take to maintain that position and to make it repeatable as we expand into new markets."

"Baldrige is like the Hubble Telescope of excellence; it gives you the tools and the training to see the things that you cannot see with the naked eye. It shows you those hidden nuggets."
