FRAME THE FUTURE: IMEC Post-Conference Sessions on Performance Excellence

May 6, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm


Begin to apply the concepts you learned about at the 2021 IMEC Conference on Enterprise Excellence with two virtual, interactive sessions that introduce the basics of performance excellence.

Get Acquainted with the Criteria for Performance Excellence

April 21 | 8:30am – Noon CST

What is Baldrige and how can we get started? Understand the basics of the Criteria framework and different options for getting started. You will understand:

  • How you are already doing many things aligned with the key concepts underpinning the Criteria
  • How the Organizational Profile can identify your organization’s key factors
  • How a quick self-assessment can get your leaders started using the Criteria
  • How the scoring guidelines define stages in the refinement of a process
  • How to benchmark with Baldrige award recipients

This workshop is recommended for leaders who want to begin using the Criteria.

Building Your Organization’s Operating Model for Performance Excellence

May 6 | 8:30am – Noon CST

How do we make Baldrige and the IMEC Award process work for us? Understand why some organizations struggle in their improvement journey and learn a systematic approach to build your customized operating model for excellence. You will learn:

  • How to make Baldrige relevant to leaders by using the Criteria as a blueprint to design your key systems/processes
  • How to increase the impact of this work on your organization by starting your journey with the foundational systems
  • How to ensure accountability for systems improvement and avoid the “Baldrige is extra” problem
  • How to make application writing more manageable and prepare for site visits
  • How to use the feedback report to further refine your operating model
  • What else is needed for your organization to achieve and sustain excellence

This workshop is recommended for leaders of organizations who are beginning their journey or want to accelerate it.
