Baldrige Program Seeks Candidates for 2017 Baldrige Executive Fellows Program

Program uses peer learning to enable organizations to become more effective and profitable

Published: Thursday, October 13, 2016 - 13:34

(NIST: Gaithersburg, MD) -- The Baldrige Program is seeking qualified candidates for the 2017 Baldrige Executive Fellows Program, which is a one-year, nationally ranked leadership development experience designed to facilitate dialogue on all aspects of leadership and how it relates to a visionary focus, strategy, operational intelligence, engagement, and sustainability.

The Executive Fellows Program is for C-suite-level executives or accomplished leaders who report to the most senior leader in the organization. The Executive Fellows represent a broad range of sectors, including manufacturing, service, small business, education, health care, and nonprofit, including government organizations.

“This program helped me to grow in how I succeed through leadership, from success by instinct to success by design.”
—Marcus Cano, Market Director of Program Execution, Sierra Providence Health Network

Executive Fellows learn about the Baldrige Excellence Framework, the impact of systems thinking on organizations, and how successful organizations have used the Baldrige framework and its Criteria to achieve their goals. They do this through site visits to and tours of Baldrige-Award-winning organizations, developing long-term relationships with other executives, and witnessing excellence in action, with practices that they can potentially adapt for their own organizations.

Within a safe and confidential environment, the Fellows will have a unique opportunity to compare the perspectives of executives across sectors, share honest advice on leadership challenges, and use the insights gained to address a strategic challenge or opportunity within their own organizations. To date, through the learning and sharing within the program, Fellows have innovated supply chains, communications strategies, employee/physician engagement, customer management, best-practice sharing, and balanced scorecards.

The Baldrige Executive Fellows Program was an excellent opportunity to look beyond your usual worldview to consider the broader world of organizational excellence and learn from the masters at their craft.”
Helen Burstin, MD, MPH, FACP, Chief Science Officer, National Quality Forum

This program puts leaders together and uses peer learning to enable organizations to become more effective and profitable. You will be able to put your knowledge and skills to the test in an environment where new perspectives and practical knowledge are gained through collaboration with your executive peers.

Application deadline
The application deadline is December 15, 2016. Please feel free to share this announcement with executives who may be interested in a professional development program in a peer-learning environment.
