How to Use the Baldrige Excellence BuilderAnswer the Organizational Profle questions. Rather than prescribe how you shouldstructure your organization or its operations or what its mission and goals should be, theBaldrige Excellence Builder asks you to make those decisions. In the Organizational Profle(pages 5–6), you defne what is most relevant and important to your organization’s missionand performance.The Organizational Profle sets the context for your answers to the rest of the questions. Itcan also serve as your frst Baldrige self-assessment: if you identify topics for which you haveconficting, little, or no information, you can use those topics for action planning.Answer the questions in categories 1–7 (pages 7–13). Your answers to these questionsare an assessment against the most important features of organizational excellence. Thecategories represent seven critical aspects of managing and performing as an organization:(1) Leadership; (2) Strategy; (3) Customers; (4) Measurement, Analysis, and KnowledgeManagement; (5) Workforce; (6) Operations; and (7) Results.Categories 1–6 (pages 7–12) each consist of two items (e.g., 1.1, 1.2), with many of thequestions beginning with “how.” In answering these questions, give information on your keyprocesses: Approach: How do you accomplish your organization’s work? How effective are yourkey approaches? Deployment: How consistently are your key approaches used in relevant parts ofyour organization? Learning: How well have you evaluated and improved your key approaches? Haveimprovements been shared within your organization? Has new knowledge led toinnovation? Integration: How do your approaches align to your current and future organizationalneeds?For the fve items in category 7 (page 13), report on the results that are the most important toyour organization’s success: Levels: What is your current performance? Trends: Are the results improving, staying the same, or getting worse? Comparisons: How does your performance compare with that of other organizationsand competitors, or with benchmarks? Integration: Are you tracking results that are important to your organization? Are youusing the results in decision making?Assess your answers: process and results. Use the rubric on pages 14–15 to assess youranswers to the questions in each item. Identify your strengths. Then look at the next higherlevel to see what you might improve.Prioritize your actions. Celebrate your strengths and build on them to improve the thingsyou do well. Sharing the things you do well with the rest of your organization can speedimprovement. Also prioritize your opportunities for improvement; you cannot do everything atonce. Think about what is most important for your organization at this time, and decide whatto work on frst. Develop an action plan, implement it, and measure your progress.After you use the Baldrige Excellence Builder, please email us at baldrige@nist.gov to tell usabout your experience.About the Baldrige Excellence Builder3
