Case study resources illustrate the Baldrige Award application and evaluation process. These resources include
- a case study , which is a sample Baldrige Award application showing a fictitious organization's responses to the requirements of the Baldrige Excellence Framework
- a scorebook (also available from the Examiner Resource Center) produced by a team of Baldrige examiners who evaluate the fictitious application against the Criteria
- a feedback report modeled on the report received by actual Baldrige Award applicants
Case studies show you the format and general content of a Baldrige Award application. However, because the primary purpose of the case study is to provide learning opportunities for Baldrige examiners and others, the case study purposely does not address all Criteria requirements or demonstrate role-model responses in all areas. See the case study scorebook and feedback report to learn how the fictitious organization scored and to see its strengths and opportunities for improvement.
