|Why Apply for a Governor’s Quality Award?|
The Governor’s Quality Award Program was developed to provide opportunities for all organizations in the state to meas- ure their progress in the journey of performance excellence. The Award is used by all types of businesses—health care, schools, government agencies and all kind of organizations including for-pro it, not-for-pro it, small, large, growing, ma- ture—any organization interested in improving its performance.
The Baldrige Excellence Framework is a set of questions that guide how to run any organization, no matter its sector or size. The questions cover all aspects of management: leadership; strategic planning; patients, measurement, analysis and knowledge management; the workforce; operations, and results. The Criteria contain core values and concepts that repre- sent high-performing organizations.
Using the Baldrige framework, you can organize and integrate these approaches, improve productivity and effectiveness, and pursue performance excellence.
