Title: The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award

The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award
  • An Overview

So Whats The Big Deal ?
  • Increasing Expectations
  • Government Performance Results Act (GPRA)
    federal programs must demonstrate measurable
    increases in performance and clear results
  • Workforce Investment Act (WIA) consistent with
    GPRA, demands increased accountability and
    continuous improvement
  • Decreasing or Stagnant Resources
  • Resource allocations not keeping pace with
  • Increasing competition for limited funds

So Whats The Big Deal ?
  • How can we bridge the gap between increasing
    expectations and decreasing resources?
  • Quality Continuous Improvement tools,
    principles and methodologies have been shown to
    improve performance in measurable ways
  • The awareness of the link between quality and
    continuous improvement initiatives and
    competitive success has never been greater!

The Bottom Line
  • Within the entire workforce development system,
    the link between performance and federal funding
    has never been greater. The challenge is to
    demonstrate results, to do more with less, to
    work smarter not harder, and to show that what we
    do makes a difference. And all this within the
    context of diminishing resources. Improving what
    we do through proven techniques and tools is no
    longer a nice thing to do.
