Manufacturing organizations that have applied the Baldrige Excellence Framework to guide them toward improvements and breakthrough innovations, realize better financial results, better operational effectiveness and efficiency, more satisfied and loyal customers, improved products and services, and moree ngaged employees.

There is no “proof” that something works like the results others have achieved using the Framework.

consistently report better results than their peer groups with similar resources.  

This framework for success can help your organization improve current operations and achieve long-term sustainability.
