“The value of the RMPEx experience is two-way: examiners support business development in the community, and at the same time gain critical business skills to apply to their own organizations.”
-Nat Cole, First-Year RMPEx Examiner, Veterans Health Administration
“As a RMPEX examiner I gain inspiration from analyzing organizations that are striving to achieve excellence; collaboration from being part of a team of examiners helping organizations sustain excellence; and knowledge of best practices from high performing organizations that can be used in my organization.”
-Terri Runyan, RMPEx Examiner, Member Board of Examiners MBNQA Program, Performance Excellence Program Manager – City of Fort Collins
“Each year I have grown my understanding and confidence in the criteria and practices. I take this newly gained knowledge back to my organization and apply it to support continuous improvement in our daily work.”
-Susan Staples, RMPEx Examiner, IT Strategy and Management – High Plains Library District
Learning how to evaluate organizational performance is a key component to becoming a high performing organization. RMPEx steeps examiners in the Baldrige Performance Excellence Criteria and trains them in how to evaluate the approach, deployment, learning and integration of organizational processes against what the organization says is important to them. Training includes how to evaluate organizational results for their levels, trends, comparisons, and integration – a critical component of achieving and sustaining excellence.
RMPEx provides opportunities for trained examiners to apply their skills to live situations. Working in teams of 8-10 people you will learn how to provide feedback on organizational strengths and opportunities for improvement aligned with the continuous improvement maturity of the organization. The entire process is completed over 4-5 months and requires 100-150 hours of volunteer time. This intense professional development experience is a chance to analyze and observe how other organizations use data to improve their processes and take away valuable best practices for your organization.
