  • Use a road map (project plan or milestone chart)
  • Get help from the Excellence in Missouri Foundation!
  • Consider doing a “Show Me” Challenge as a starting point
  • Consider using other available Baldrige books and resources

  • Benchmark MQA and Baldrige winners!

  • Which subject matter experts do you need to involve?
  • Involve Senior Leadership as much as possible.
  • Involve your trained examiners as much as possible.
  • Who is going to edit, beef up the graphics, proofread, etc?

Landmark Case Study Response

The BE Director maintains a Disaster Preparedness Plan that is updated annually. The plan emphasizes responses to the specific kinds of disasters likely in South Texas, including tornadoes, hurricanes, flash floods, and severe thunder storms, as well as general business disasters, such as fires and power disruptions. It details actions employees should take based on the scenario, such as stay inside, evacuate, or call rescue services. The plan is reviewed annually, and a hard copy is available in each location, as well as at the home of each member of the Senior Leadership Team. In addition, an electronic copy is available on the Foodtrak Knowledge Management system. The plan includes the designation of ongoing activities to support disaster recovery, such as the creation of daily backups of all data systems and weekly off-site storage. Other electronic system disaster recovery and system assurance procedures are described in Item 4.2.

Emergency exits and the evacuation process are discussed with new employees during orientation and reviewed on a regular basis with all employees. In addition, monthly fire, severe weather, and evacuation drills are held.

The Bad and the Ugly

Lessons Learned Included:

  • Failure to continue to use the MQA/Baldrige process in the early part of our journey, feedback report sat on the shelf
  • Initial self assessment scored low…we had work to do!
  • Failure to initially embrace Baldrige as a business model
  • Lack of adequate number of MQA examiners in the early years
  • Inconsistent key enterprise level measures early in the process
  • Lack of industry comparisons, we had to go outside our industry
