The Baldrige Program is the nation's public-private partnership dedicated to performance excellence. Created by Congress in 1987, the Baldrige Program helps organizations improve performance and succeed in the competitive global marketplace. We are the only public-private partnership and Presidential award program dedicated to improving U.S. organizations. 

The Baldrige Program

  • Raises awareness about the importance of performance excellence in driving the U.S. and global economy
  • Provides organizational assessment tools and criteria
  • Educates leaders in businesses, schools, health care organizations, and government and nonprofit agencies about the practices of best-in-class organizations
  • Recognizes national role models and honors them with the only Presidential Award for performance excellence

The Baldrige Program’s key objectives are to share best management practices, help organizations achieve world-class performance levels, and identify and recognize role-model organizations throughout the nation. In collaboration with the greater Baldrige community, we provide organizations with;

  • an integrated management framework that gets results
  • organizational self-assessment tools for any organization to use
  • analysis of organizational strengths and opportunities for improvement by a team of trained experts
  • educational presentations, conferences, and workshops on proven best management practices and on how to use the Baldrige Criteria to improve
  • Conferences and other learning events that showcase best management practices
  • A Presidential Award for organizations recognized as national role models

 

What does Baldrige Offer?

The Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence provide a validated management approach to improving an organization’s overall performance—one that has been used by thousands of organizations for 25 years. The Criteria provide a comprehensive management approach focusing on all areas of operation. The approach guides organizations and improves their abilities to think and act strategically, align processes and resources, engage the workforce and customers, and focus on key results.  You can use the Criteria for self-assessment, or as the basis of an award assessment.
