Are We Making Progress?

Deploying your organization's strategy can be much more difficult than developing it. Based on the Baldrige Excellence Framework, this easy-to-use questionnaire and performance measurement tool will help you

  • assess your organization’s performance and learn what you can improve
  • focus improvement and communication efforts where your workforce feels they are most needed

Results from the 2011 Board of Examiners
Results from the 2002 and 2003 Board of Examiners (PDF)

Use these summaries of responses from members of the Board of Examiners for the Baldrige Award to

  • compare your organization’s progress toward performance excellence with that of others in the business, education, health care, and nonprofit sectors
  • compare the perceptions of your workforce with those of employees in other organizations
  • set priorities for performance improvement

You may use and customize Are We Making Progress? at no cost, but please acknowledge the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program on copies that you distribute under your own logo.
