Incorporated in 2000 as a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation, Rocky Mountain Performance Excellence (RMPEx) helps organizations improve performance and achieve results. RMPEx is funded solely by contributions and operational revenues and is one of over 30 similar state programs that exist throughout the U.S. The approach is based on the Baldrige criteria for Performance Excellence framework, a proven program that brings innovation and results to any organization.
RMPEx serves its customers and the community through its core competency of assessment and feedback. It is a low-cost service that guarantees tailored, actionable, objective feedback and consultation. Organizations that have adopted the performance excellence framework:
- Establish a sound management framework
- Achieve financial results
- Demonstrate increased organizational learning and development
- Realize benefits to employees, customers, the community, and other stakeholders
- Use the state award as a stepping stone to the national Baldrige Performance Excellence Award.
The Awards Program recognizes organizations from education, health care, manufacturing, nonprofit/government, service, and small business in Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, and Wyoming for their achievements in performance excellence. Award applicants receive extensive feedback identifying the organization’s positive attributes and opportunities for improvement. During the annual Quest for Excellence event, RMPEx formally recognizes role-model applicants for performance excellence achievements with four levels of award participation. Organizations or individuals seriously committed to reaping the many benefits of systematic performance improvement can benefit from joining the RMPEx community as an applicant, examiner, and/or volunteer.
