Become an Examiner and Develop as a Leader

The Partnership for Excellence depends upon volunteer examiners who dedicate hundreds of hours of time, energy and commitment to our mission of “cultivating performance excellence in Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia."

Trained examiners help an organization identify its strengths and opportunities for improvement. The examining team develops a feedback report to the applicant organization, allowing them to continue on their journey towards world-class performance.


Examiner Profile

TPE examiners come from all sectors and regions of Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia. All are trained in the Baldrige Criteria to help applicant organizations identify their strengths and opportunities for improvement.


Personal and Professional Growth

For many examiners, the exposure and experience has been invaluable in their career. The combination of learning and applying the Baldrige Criteria with regionally based organizations can be a rewarding role both personally and professionally.

Start Locally, Finish Nationally

The Baldrige Performance Excellence Program annually seeks applicants for its National Board of Examiners. The Board supports and evaluates the performance improvement of all types of organizations—businesses, schools, hospitals, and nonprofit organizations, including government agencies.

Prospective examiners (including those who previously have served on the board) must apply each year. To fulfill one of the basic aims of the Baldrige Program—expanding the United States' base of knowledgeable, trained examiners—a portion of the board always is reserved for new examiners.
