Ideal Candidate

A rising senior executive committed to organizational and personal performance excellence—for example, business unit leaders or CEO direct reports—is the ideal Fellow candidate.

Submit the following to Robert Fangmeyer, Bldg 101/A600, 100 Bureau Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20899-0102 no later than October 31, 2011:

2) An organizational chart that includes names and titles showing your position within the organization
3) A recommendation letter from your highest ranking official (CEO) showing the organization’s support of your participation in the Fellows Program
4) A list of key business competitors (in order that we may avoid creating a cohort that would be unable to share effectively due to competitive situations)

Selection Process

Selection decisions will be based on 1) sector mix, 2) level within the organization, 3) likelihood to follow through, 4) diversity, and 5) no direct competition with other Fellows or Baldrige Award Recipients that are affiliated with the Fellows Program. Candidates will be notified of the decision by November 23, 2011.
