Workshop 1 Getting Acquainted with Baldrige

Presented by Pattie Skriba, VP Performance Excellence, Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital (retired) and member, Baldrige Panel of Judges

  • Designed for those who have had little or no exposure to the Baldrige Criteria

  • Participants will learn the history and structure of the Baldrige Program, the benefits of self-assessment and feedback, the structure of the Criteria, how to focus improvement and communication efforts, how to use the Criteria and the Award recipient application summaries to enhance learning from the conference in this interactive session.

Workshop 2 - Intermediate Baldrige: Moving From Interest to Action

Presented by JoAnn Sternke, Senior Director and Coach, Studer Education and member,
Baldrige Panel of Judges


  • Designed for those who have begun to use the Criteria or self-assessment tools and are ready to learn more – not for experienced Criteria users

  • Participants will learn the benefits of conducting a self-assessment using the Organizational Profile, an approach for managing an initial organizational self-assessment, and the value of using the Criteria to more fully articulate an organization’s attributes, challenges, and needs

Note: Limited space is available for each workshop, so you'll want to reserve your seat early!  Workshops are not a pre-requisite for attending the conference. Workshop attendees will receive one free copy of the 2019-20 Criteria for Performance Excellence (their choice of either the Business/Nonprofit, Education, or Health Care version).  Happy Hour will follow  the workshops.
