Award Process

The Partnership for Excellence (TPE) is Ohio, Indiana & West Virginia's Baldrige-based awards program. TPE assists organizations using the internationally-recognized Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence. TPE's primary product is a comprehensive assessment that helps organizational leaders better understand and prioritize key strengths and opportunities for improvement. While the assessment is the foundation, TPE's main focus is on organizational learning, innovation, resource optimization, continuous improvement, and results.

 

Evaluation Process

All of the applicants were evaluated rigorously by an independent board of examiners in seven areas defined by the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence: leadership; strategy; customers; measurement, analysis and knowledge management; workforce; operations; and results.

 

The evaluation process for each of the recipients included more than 1,000 hours of review and a three-day visit by a team of examiners to clarify questions and verify information in the application.

 

An independent panel of judges reviewed each organization's evaluation, approved the final feedback reports, and developed their award recommendations for the TPE Board of Trustees.

 

Award Recipient Recognition

The 2016 Partnership for Excellence award recipients will be honored at TPE's Annual Quest for Success Conference to be held September 11-12, 2017 at the Fawcett Center in Columbus, Ohio. All of the high-performing organizations will be presented with their achievement awards at a banquet on Monday evening, September 12, 2016.
