The National Institute of Standards and Technology has said 15 emerging senior executives have completed a NIST-run Baldrige Executive Fellows Program.
NIST said Monday the program is a one-year initiative that aims to help senior executives achieve performance excellence for their organizations and learn all aspects of leadership through visits to Baldridge Award recipient companies.
The program includes meetings with CEOs of Baldridge Award recipient firms including Paul Worstell of PRO-TEC Coating; Bob Barnett of Motorola’s commercial, government and industrial solutions sector; and Janet Wagner of Mills-Peninsula Health Services.
Fellows discussed the concept of visionary leadership, strategy deployment, manufacturing strategy and corporate leadership during a visit to Lockheed Martin’s missiles and fire control business, another Baldridge Award recipient.
The program also included visits to companies such as Premier and Ritz-Carlton and panel discussions on strategic planning, process integration, workforce engagement, talent management, measurement, knowledge management and innovation.
All fellows presented their projects that seek to address their organization’s strategic challenges at the 2016 Quest for Excellence Conference.
