The goal of Baldrige.com is to become an online gathering place for people who share a passion for the Baldrige model and improvement process. As you can see, this is a basic, functional (we hope) site; we will expand services and features as the community grows.
We have a grand and noble vision for Baldrige.com: Every Organization a Baldrige Organization. Imagine how much better our world would be if all organizations—businesses, healthcare, education, nonprofits, and government agencies—embraced the Baldrige core values. We’ll build our community with the thousands of us who have served as Baldrige and state award examiners or participated in Baldrige application or assessment efforts or seen the benefits of integrating Baldrige. As our community grows, we will encourage high performance in the organizations we work for, buy and receive services from, and supply.
My name is Steve George and I’ll be posting articles about the categories you see in the columns below. I welcome your ideas for posts and your comments on what I’ve written. As the site grows, I’ll ask experts to address topics of interest to the community.
We need your help to bring this community alive. Here’s how:
- Participate. We invite you to read and react to our posts and pages. Contribute your comments (see our Comment Policy). Pass along ideas. Share best practices. Tell us what else you would like on the site. Sign up for our RSS feed. Make Baldrige.com your online Baldrige community.
- Tell others about us. We need as many voices as possible to enrich our community and achieve our vision. Email our Web address to friends and associates. Invite them to check us out and, if they like what they see, to tell their friends and associates about the site. The bigger our community, the more valuable it will be for us all.
- Provide financial support. We’re looking for advertisers and sponsors to help Baldrige.com grow into a force for driving performance excellence. Advertising and sponsorships will not only fuel Baldrige.com’s growth, they will make it possible for us to provide the site free of charge.
For those of us who have seen the value of the Baldrige model and yearn for others to see it, too, we hope Baldrige.com can become the gathering place for a world-changing Baldrige revolution.
