“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

Event Summary

The 2010 Baldrige Regional Conferences provide an in-depth opportunity to learn about the best practices and results of both the 2009 Baldrige Award recipients and former Award recipients.

Senior leaders and other representatives of the Award recipient organizations will make presentations and answer questions about the seven Categories of the Baldrige Criteria.  They will also present on numerous other special topics of interest to today’s managers and senior leaders. 

The conferences will feature a combination of plenary and concurrent presentations as well as  Open Mic sessions where you can share your knowledge and best practices on selected topics.  Collectively, these sessions will provide you with a dynamic and interactive environment where you can maximize your learning and networking.

Whether your organization is large or small; involved in service or manufacturing, health care, education, or government; housed in one location or multiple sites around the globe; you can benefit from the knowledge and experience of the Baldrige Award recipients.

Who Should Attend:  CEOs; senior managers; education, health care, and government/nonprofit leaders and professionals; directors of staff functions; heads of operating units; and quality/performance improvement practitioners.

Conference Schedules: Each conference is scheduled for 8:00am – 5:00 pm with a continental breakfast from 7:00am-8:00am. 

Conference Proceedings/Materials:
  This year, we are continuing our efforts to Go Green!  To this end, all attendees will receive an email link prior to the conference giving them access to the presentation visuals and the attendee list.  Hard copies of these materials will not be available on site, so please print them out if you want them on hand at the conference.  At the conference, attendees will receive a Learning Journal to take notes and reflect on what they have learned. A CD containing Baldrige Program Materials is also available upon request.   A limited number of conference bags will also be available if needed, but we encourage you to support our Go Green initiative by reusing a bag from a previous event.
