Cost: At only $295, you can get better results than you can get from the best Baldrige consultants at a fraction of the cost.
Real-Time: If you are writing and award application, all team members writing responses have real-time access to the latest information. This saves an immense amount of rework and ensures that conflicting information is not used.
Criteria understanding: Ensures that different Category teams/team members are not using different definitions for terms such as, 'core competencies', 'sustainability', 'innovation', or even 'customers'.
Savings: The time to capture, analyze, organize, and present application information is reduced dramatically. Each team can usually input and validate their work in less than a day.
Using a consultant? This tool allows you to assess their performance too . . . it's only fair!
Total Integration: Integration is the only assessment scoring dimension common to all seven Baldrige Categories. It is often the most difficult to effectively address . . . not any more.
Focus: Designed to extract the right information from your subject matter experts so they do not waste their time on what they think should go in the application but which may often not be adding value.
Refinement: Nearly twenty years of user feedback ensures ongoing calibration to user needs
Used for almost twenty years by dozens of national Baldrige Award winners as well as dozens more state and international winners.

A two-time national Baldrige winner is currently using it to try to become the first to win three times.

All new for 2012: OrgProfiler. The Organizational Profile (OP) is the basis for all Baldrige assessments. It is a set of "What" questions designed to capture the key attributes of your organization and to guide the assessors by informing them who you are, what you do, and what is important to your success. Everything else in the application needs to be compatible and integrated with it. OrgProfiler ensures that you completely and correctly input the necessary information which automatically integrates to all key topics. Many organizations pay consultants tens of thousands of dollars to help them write their OP. OrgProfiler costs $95 and there is no consultant who can outperform it.
Click to order OrgProfiler online or call 425 633-2690 to order and have it shipped via email. Visa and MasterCard orders ship immediately upon receipt of payment.
