12 What are the Criteria?A set of expectations or requirementsA structured approach to performance improvementA framework for a systems view of performance managementDe facto definition of performance excellenceBasis for continuous improvementThe Criteria are non prescriptive
13 Continuous Improvement The Baldrige Criteria are based on cycles ofcontinuous improvement. These improvementcycles should be imbedded in all work processes.Act PlanStudy Do
14 The Criteria Asks Four Basic Questions Approach – what methods and processes is an organization using to carry out its work?Deployment – to what extent (breadth and depth) are the organization’s approaches deployed to relevant work processes?
15 The Criteria Asks Four Basic Questions – cont’d Results – what are the outcomes achieved by the organization?Learning – is the organization improving its methods, processes, and results through cycles of evaluation and improvement (continuous improvements)
17 Category 1 LeadershipCategory 1 asks how does leadership….Establish, communicate, demonstrate visions and values?e.g. processes used to communicate the valuesof the organization – senior leaders involved in improvement effortsHow do senior leader communicate key decision, encourage two way communication throughout the organization?
18 Category 1 – cont’dEnsure legal and ethical behavior?e.g. ethics policy - deploymentCreate a sustainable organization?e.g. culture of performance improvement, accomplishment of strategic objectivesCreate a focus on accomplishing the organizations objectives?e.g. progress against the strategic plan
19 Category 2 Strategic Planning Category 2 asks how is the….Strategic plan – short and long term objectives developed (planning process – inputs) and a timetable for accomplishing them established?e.g. inputs – core competencies, student dataShort and long term challenges and opportunities addressed?e.g. budget cuts
20 Category 2 – cont’dStrategic objectives converted into action plans and how are they deployed and performance measures established for tracking progress?How strategic objectives and action plans are modified if circumstances change?
21 Category 3 Customer Focus Category 3 asks, how does your organization….Listen to students and stakeholders to obtain actionable information (voice of the customer – requirements expectations, desires)?Determine student and stakeholder satisfaction and engagement (engagement – retention, loyalty, advocate/recommend your organizations programs)?

34 Why Baldrige – the message from leadership? Leadership sets direction – Criteria requirementWe want to be an organization known for excellence – this is our commitmentHow will we accomplish this goal?The model of performance excellence we will use is the Baldrige Educational Criteria for Performance Excellence, a world class model
35 How will we know we are achieving our goal of performance excellence – application and measurement against the CriteriaApplication and the award are verification that we are on the right path to excellenceIt’s not about receiving an award (recognition is good), it’s about performance excellence and a commitment to excellence
36 The Criteria are the basics that any organization of excellence would do: Examples:Manage and make decisions by factMeasure customer satisfaction (student)Have a process to address customer complaintsImprove all of our work processesMeasure staff satisfaction and engagementHave a plan (strategic) and align the organization to the plan
37 From an organizational view… If we are recognized as being the best school district, against a world class standard – families seeking to have their children attend great schools would be motivated to move to our district – and select our school vs. competitors.More families buying homes = more school taxes being paid = more revenue for our school in an environment with shrinking funding.
38 We should have organizational performance data in critical areas and compare ourselves to best in class to know we are making progress as and organization (National Award recipients) – Criteria requirementAnyone can say they are good – we can prove it, we have compared ourselves to a world class standard (as Deming would say “how do you know” or “where is your data”)“I would not want to compete against a Baldrige winner” – H. Zechman –Stoner Inc.
39 What’s in it for me?????The processes we work in and interface with are thoughtfully designed and improved (less frustration – less non value added work – input to the design) – Criteria requirementWe make decisions based on facts and data – not hunch and guess – Criteria requirementWe measure workforce satisfaction and engagement and act on the findings and measure improvement (motivated, happier staff)– Criteria requirement
40 We know where we are going and why - our efforts are aligned (achievement of our strategic plan) and we measure our progress – no more where are we going and why am I being asked to work on this (less frustration)? – Criteria requirement
41 Is Baldrige something extra to do? The answer is no! It is the way we should be working. It is not something extra to do.Example:Managing and making decisions with data or improving processes so they are efficient and effective should be the way we work. If we are making decisions with facts and data – we should not say “we are now doing Baldrige” this is the way we should work.
42 If we are establishing process performance metrics and improving process that touch the students (focus on the customer) and staff – we should not say “we are doing Baldrige” – this is the way we should work.It takes time for the transition to take place from how we are comfortable working to a better way.It takes time to change a culture.
43 “By what method will you improve?” Dr. Edwards Deming
44 North Penn’s Next Steps in Continuous Improvement Increase internal capacity6 to 8 Baldrige examiners on staff10 Lean Six Sigma projects-rapid cycle200 processes per year documented in standard format with cross functional flowcharts-form the basis for identifying root cause of unreliable processes, designing and sustaining improvementsImplement feedback report from state level Baldrige Program (Keystone Alliance for Performance Excellence)
45 Mindset MattersWe are facing the most difficult challenge of our generation, improving educational institutions vital to national prosperity at a time of unprecedented financial difficulty.Involving the employees and the broader community in the challenge will result in discovering many opportunities to do better with less.Many of the major cost reductions require extensive cooperation from numerous employees. Lack of cooperation will postpone savings and/or reduce financial potential achieved.Establish challenges at a school, department, or function levelCautionsStaff demoralized or fearing job loss will not be helpful, could resist or sabotage effortsLeaders must show confidencePositive mindset and approach represents enlightened self-interest, making job easier instead of more difficult
