Overview

The Pocket Guide to the Baldrige Criteria - 13th Edition has been updated for 2007 to interpret the criteria in the seven Baldrige categories. It begins with commonly asked questions about the Award criteria and then breaks down the 19 items under the seven category headings of the Baldrige criteria with concise explanations and quick tips of what excellent companies do in each area. Many aspects of the award have been improved, including— • *Implementation of the most significant change ever to the scoring scale • *Inclusion of an index in the 2004 criteria booklet • *Inclusion of three new terms to the glossary — Ethical behavior, Learning and Segment — which have very specific meanings within the Baldrige framework

The most widely used and recognized resource on the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, this book, updated annually, is a simple and comprehensive resource for understanding the exhaustive criteria of the nation's leading business performance award, and is the only book to detail every category, examination item, and area within the seven categories of the criteria: Leadership; Strategic Planning; Customer and Market Focus; Measurement, Analysis and Knowledge Management; Human Resource Focus; Process Management and Business Results.

The Baldrige Award is presented annually by the President of the United States to businesses — manufacturing and service, small and large — and to education and healthcare organizations, that apply and are judged to be outstanding in the seven criteria areas. These criteria are designed to help organizations enhance competitiveness by focusing on two goals: delivering ever improving value to customers and improving overall organizational performance
