Baldrige tools use the Baldrige Framework above and pose a series of questions for organizations to use to assess their level of development of these interacting elements. The Baldrige Excellence Builder, for example, helps you understand how well you are accomplishing what is important to your organization:
Are your processes consistently effective?
Do your approaches address your organization's needs?
How good are your results?
Is your organization learning and improving?
Now that I am serving on the Board of the Wisconsin Center for Performance Excellence I can work with organizations with these tools, and help them understand their strengths and opportunities for improvement as they take their journey toward performance excellence.
