Managing Processes Instead of Having Them Manage Us

Abstract: The Pewaukee School District, located near Milwaukee, WI, has been on a quality journey for over 20 years.

However, it was in 2006 the district began using the Baldrige criteria, a comprehensive framework with seven distinct categories focusing on achieving performance excellence.

This article focuses on how we accomplish that work. In the Pewaukee School District, we call this “process management.”
