Message from the Director

Welcome to the Baldrige Executive Fellows Program. The Fellows Program offers a leadership development experience centered on forming relationships with and learning from Baldrige Award recipient senior executives. The year-long program provides an opportunity for executives to truly engage with one-another and the recipient organizations, including visiting their operations to see excellence in action.

Leaders who participate in the Fellows Program build lasting networks and benefit from the insights of other executives as they plan and complete a capstone project that addresses a strategic need in their home organization. Our participants are generally "C-Suite" executives or accomplished leaders who report to the most senior leader in the organization. They represent a broad range of sectors, including manufacturing, service, small business, education, health care, and nonprofit, including government organizations.

I encourage you to explore our website and learn more about how the Baldrige Executive Fellows Program can help you take your organization to the next level. Please feel free to contact me at (301) 975-2360 if you have any questions about the program.
