The Chattanooga Section 1101 of the American Society for Quality is graciously hosting a meeting and letting me discuss why we need a regional Baldrige group and what we can do to get the movement started.
It is easy for all of us to criticize our local school boards, city and county officials, the companies we all work for, and our policy makers at the national level. But rarely during these gripe sessions are solutions to the problems offered. As a matter of fact, we mostly all agree that the biggest problems and opportunities aren’t even identified let alone being addressed.
The Baldrige criteria and the state and national Baldrige programs are ways for organizations to identify and address big problems and big opportunities. Isn’t excellent performance what we all want out of our employers or companies, our schools, churches, and associations, and our government?
The meeting will be held Tuesday, September 26th, at 6:00 P.M. at the Blood Assurance across from McKenzie arena on E. 4th Street. The cost is $12 per guest or member, $6 each for students. Reservations are required by Friday, April 22nd, 12:00 Noon. Comment below or send me an email and I will get your reservation information to the right person.
This is a great opportunity to show your support for the local Baldrige movement or to learn more about Baldrige and the Tennessee Center for Performance Excellence.
