Workshop teaches methods to improve organizations

The United States Senate Productivity and Quality Award Program for Virginia (SPQA) is partnering with Northern Virginia Community College to offer a two-day workshop on improving organizations. 

“An Inquirer’s Guide to the Baldrige Excellence Framework” will explain how the 2015-2016 Baldrige Excellence Framework provides a guide for assessing and improving the performance of an entire organization. The Baldrige Excellence Framework can be applied to any size organization operating in any industry including healthcare, education, government, service and nonprofits. 

Organization leaders seeking new performance assessment and improvement methods and process improvement professionals are encouraged to attend. The training counts toward recertification for many professionals.

“An Inquirer’s Guide to the Baldrige Excellence Framework” will be held May 12-13 at NOVA’s Manassas Campus, 6901 Sudley Road, Manassas. Materials and lunch both days are included in the $275 registration fee. To register, go to www.spqa-va.org or call 571-215-8881.
