2019/20 Examiner Training Applications
Thank you for your interest in participating in a nationally recognized group of leaders for the Baldrige based training as an examiner for the Performance Excellence Northwest (PENW) and Washington State Quality Award (WSQA) programs. Your participation in the excellence journey provides a valuable service to the region (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington). If you work in business, education, healthcare, or nonprofits/government, you possess experience in most of the Baldrige categories. We encourage you to complete this application and join the board of examiners today!
Becoming a PENW Examiner is tremendous professional development opportunity that can serve you and your employer for years to come. It’s a humbling commitment and one that we hold with great respect; organizations are inviting us into assess their performance against the Baldrige framework and in turn we offer them feedback (strengths and opportunities for improvement) regarding next steps on their improvement journey. To help New Examiners better understand the time commitment, you find a brief outline below. Again, MOST examiners will be assigned to a Lite Application to reduce the workload and increase content application. Should you have any questions, please reach to email@example.com and we’ll be happy to respond with more information or give you a call.
