Consultant Q&A


  Our company is applying for the North Carolina (Baldrige) Performance Excellence Program award. The NCPEP criteria is identical to the national Baldrige Award criteria. The difference is that the NCPEP is only a statewide improvement and recognition process, and the Baldrige is nationwide. Part of this process is to find a better system for receiving and implementing continuous improvement suggestions and ideas from associates. Please advise me as to what system I can use when someone submits an improvement suggestion or an idea. How can I collect a suggestion, register it, process it, approve it, give feedback to the submitter, and have an awards or recognition system. Also, can you suggest a company that has implemented and uses this type of program so that we may be able to benchmark their program?
