Baldrige examiners are an elite group of individuals who make meaningful contributions to organizational improvement and U.S. competitiveness. Even after their service as examiners, many continue as practitioners of the Baldrige Excellence Framework and its Criteria in support of their own organizations and charitable and other work.
To drive organizational performance excellence across the country, many examiners also take on the role of Baldrige ambassador, speaking at conferences, associations, schools, and other organizations. For these activities, the Baldrige Program makes available a series of updated slide sets that can be used as is, tailored, or combined with other presentations to suit each audience’s needs.
