11 Why do it? Before we used the framework, we were hard-working, but now we’re more effective and efficient. It allowed us to leverage our strength in planning and get better to reach new heights of achievement. It allows us to make sure we are using results to drive improvement. By using a systematic approach, we became more innovative.

33 Keys to Success w/ TNCPE & Baldrige (from Robert Otwell) 1.Senior leadership support 2.Key support staff leadership 3.Well written application 4.World class results 5.Lead the organization using Baldrige principles 32

34 Senior Leadership Support Most senior leaders will say they are committed but since the journey is over many years, other priorities can take hold. I was guilty of diminished support at times. Renee had to get my attention. 33

35 Key Support Staff Leadership With all seriousness, every organization that has TNCPE/Baldrige success, must have a “Renee” or at least someone close to having her abilities. 34

36 Well Written Application That seems obvious, but even the best organization may need some outside support to write a application that accurately answers the Criteria and tells the organization's story. 35

37 World Class Results If an organization is stuck on the TNCPE/ Baldrige journey, this is the area that I think may need the most attention. I think we did a good job of taking the feedback results every year and doing an honest assessment to determine what results needed to improve. Then the task was to develop actions plans, assign responsibility and monitor results to achieve ideally top 10 percent comparative results. 36

38 Use the Baldrige Principles Lead the organization using Baldrige principles. We realized that we needed to merge the Baldrige committees and activities into the everyday organizational leadership. I think this was a major breakthrough for us. 37
