“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

Pre-Conference Workshop for Baldrige Beginners

Please note that the September 13 Pre-Conference Workshop in Newport Beach and the September 27 Pre-Conference Workshop in Nashville are sold out.

A Pre-Conference Workshop will be offered from 1:00-4:00 p.m.  on September 13 for the Newport Beach, CA conference and on September 27 for the Nashville, TN conference.  This optional workshop is designed to familiarize people new to Baldrige with the Program and the Criteria to maximize their learning at the conference.  However, the workshop is not a prerequisite for attending the conference. This workshop provides a hands-on opportunity to learn the basics of the Baldrige Criteria, the benefits of self-assessment, and the resources available to help organizations in their journey to excellence.

Pre-registration is required, as on site registration will not be available.  Please register early to reserve a seat, as seating is limited.  The workshop is available with or without a Regional Conference registration, but conference registrants receive a significant discount (see registration general information section for details).
Should you attend the Pre-Conference Workshop? If you agree with all or most of the following statements, this workshop is designed for you:

  • I am not familiar with the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence

  • I would like an introduction to the Baldrige Award Program and the Criteria

  • I would like to understand the benefits of using the Criteria for self-assessment

  • I have not previously attended a Baldrige conference
