easyInsight: Take a First Step toward a Baldrige Self-Assessment

easyInsight introduces you to the Baldrige Organizational Profile, part of the Criteria for Performance Excellence. The Organizational Profile is a snapshot of your organization, the key influences on how you operate, and the key challenges you face.
  • The first section, Organizational Description, asks about your organization’s operating environment and your key relationships with customers, suppliers, partners, and stakeholders.
  • The second section, Organizational Situation, asks about your organization’s competitive environment, your key strategic challenges and advantages, and your system for performance improvement.
If you identify topics for which conflicting, little, or no information is available, the Organizational Profile may serve as your complete assessment, and you can use these topics for action planning.
