NIST Refreshes Baldrige Program with Focus On Resilience and Long-Term Success

The Malcolm Baldrige Performance Excellence Framework and Criteria have long been the gold standard tools for organizational development and the ongoing pursuit of quality.  For years, reaching such achievement to become a recipient of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award is an honor that only the very best organizations achieve, and only after a commitment to excellence and hard work along a quality journey.

The U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced this week, a renewed Baldrige Performance Excellence Award Program, focused on identifying and recognizing organizations that are role models of resilience and long-term success.

From the Press Release

The redesigned award program features a streamlined, results-focused evaluation process using a tailored set of new Baldrige Award criteria derived from the literature on organizational resilience and the Baldrige Excellence Framework®. The new criteria are intended to help organizations adapt, innovate and thrive in a dynamic environment where change and disruption are constant.
