Baldrige Education Glossary: Key

Key

The term “key” refers to the major or most important elements or factors, those that are critical to achieving your intended outcome. The Baldrige Criteria, for example, refer to key challenges, key student/customer groups, key plans, key work processes, and key measures—those that are most important to your organization’s success. They are the essential elements for pursuing or monitoring a desired outcome.
