“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: Why Some Companies Make the Leap ... and Others Don’t


2014 Baldrige Regional Conferences

The 2014 Baldrige Regional Conferences were held September 9 in Los Angeles, CA and September 23 in Minneapolis, MN.

Thank you to all who joined us to learn best practices from current and former recipients! Conference highlights included:

  • An in-depth plenary session featuring the senior executives of the 2013 recipients – Pewaukee School District and Sutter Davis Hospital.
  • More than 15 management sessions featuring current and former Baldrige recipients sharing their real-world best practices.
  • Numerous opportunities to network with the Baldrige Award recipients and leading practitioners who use the Baldrige Criteria on a daily basis to improve their organizations.
  • A pre-conference workshop for Baldrige beginners facilitated by a Baldrige Award recipient.

The 2015 Baldrige Regional Conferences will be held in September 2015 in Denver, CO and Nashville, TN. Dates and locations will be announced in Fall 2014.

Thank you to the Regional conference co-sponsors - the California Council for Excellence, the Performance Excellence Network, and the Alliance for Performance Excellence.
