2013 Baldrige Award Winners - Recipients

Has the Baldrige Award Program Gone out of 'Business'?

For the first time in the 25 year history of the award, there are no Baldrige business applicants
and Criteria degradation and impracticality are looking more and more like the primary causes

2013 Baldrige Applicants Summay

To put this in perspective, not one of the 20 million for-profit businesses in the United States applied for the Baldrige Award this year.

Even worse, the number of applicants has declined 73% for Health Care and 80% for Education since 2010

25 Years of Baldrige - a 25th anniversary perspective from someone who was there at the start

As Baldrige marks its 25th anniversary, you may be interested in knowing what it was like to serve on the Board of Examiners when it all began in 1988. In fact, nobody from the current Baldrige Program was there. Here are some highlights:

  • Examiners received an invitation from the President of the United States to join him at the White House for the official award presentation.

  • Dr. Deming, Dr. Juran, Dr. Feigenbaum, and Philip Crosby were in my shuttle from the hotel to the White House

  • Most feedback reports were written by hand . . . making it no fun trying to read and assimilate your team's individual reports

  • Each Examiner received several applications to assess. . . processing 6 or more applications was not uncommon

  • Your first training session was held in the evening . . . and, there were homework assignments for the other evenings

  • NIST was known as NBS (National Bureau of Standards)

  • Each Examiner was photographed individually with the Secretary of Commerce and with the Award Director (Dr. Curt Reimann)

  • Your fellow Examiners were truly a 'Who's Who' of top quality executives from many of America's largest businesses . . . not that it necessarily made them good Examiners . . .

  • You received personal letters thanking you for your service from some of America's best known CEOs . . . and. your name appeared in full page ads in the Wall Street Journal and similar prestigious publications.

  • You were given contact information for about a dozen CEOs in your region for purposes of contacting them and soliciting funds to support the Award

  • Unlike today's easier standard, 'world-class' processes and results were part of the requirements in the top scoring band.

  • Examiner perks included your very own official 'Baldrige Award Flag' and an oversize Baldrige bronze medallion

  • You had to choose your Examiner training location from among Milwaukee, Atlanta, Gaithersburg, Los Angeles, or Houston
