Results-Driven Framework for Excellence

Harness the most economical assessment available for organizational improvement. Our approach is founded on the internationally renowned criteria for performance excellence. No matter your organization’s size, sector, or industry, we can support you on your improvement journey. This time-tested, results-proven strategy has helped thousands of organizations better understand their strengths and opportunities for improvement, allowing them to fulfill their vision. Affiliated with the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, Oklahoma’s Quality Award program is led by one of the 2018 National Quality Award winner recipients. The only way an Oklahoma organization can apply for the National Baldrige Award is to receive Oklahoma’s highest recognition, the Leadership in Excellence award.

“I see the Baldrige process as a powerful set of mechanisms for disciplined people engaged in disciplined thought and taking disciplined action to create great organizations that produce exceptional results.”

Jim Collins | Author of Good to Great
