ASQ (hosted by WMATA)
Everyone is talking about jobs and global competition. Some organizations are able to improve and to thrive in spite of the economic downturn and tight government budgets. How? Is it really possible? Many commercial and government organizations have used the Baldrige framework to help them achieve impressive gains.
According to NIST Planning Report 11-2, December 2011, the Baldrige Program's benefit-to-cost ratio is 820 to 1. To arrive at this ratio, they compared the benefits received by the 273 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award applicants from 2007 to 2010 with the cost of operating the Baldrige Program.
