What we do

We educate individuals in all business, healthcare and education sectors in the use of the Baldrige Excellence Framework, conduct third party assessments and administer the only regional awards and recognition program for performance excellence in the Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska).

Why we do it

We believe strong organizations committed to performance excellence create more value for their employees, stakeholders and communities. As local citizens, we are invested in helping these organizations achieve their objectives, become role models for other businesses and make the Pacific Northwest a better place to learn, work and live.

We are committed to sharing the best practices and processes contained in the Baldrige Excellence Framework to help you and your organization excel.

Volunteer examiners gain business, management and leadership skills and training that can improve their own performance, help in their own organizations and provide a cross-functional view of how organizations can function effectively.

Assess

We offer different types of assessments to benchmark your organization’s performance and provide actionable feedback for improvement: Organizational Profile Development, Lite Application (25 pages) and Full Application (55 pages).

Testimonials

We are now organizing our ‘nuts and bolts’ team with associated workgroups focused on the Baldrige Excellence Framework. I would highly recommend this offering to anyone seeking Baldrige or even considering a journey to excellence.

Eileen Branscome, Chief Operations Officer, Mason General Hospital

Performance Excellence Northwest’s unique leadership approach assisted our staff in developing the framework and refining our Baldrige values as we started drafting our first Baldrige application. Their Baldrige Rapid Access approach not only accelerated our application process but improved the quality of that application.

Scott Hilburn, President Board of Commissioners, Mason General Hospital
