The Baldrige Performance Excellence Program is seeking candidates for the 2024 Baldrige Executive Fellows Program, a year-long leadership development experience designed to facilitate dialogue on all aspects of leadership and how it relates to a visionary focus, strategy, operational excellence, customer and employee engagement, resilience, and sustainability. The program is for C-suite-level executives or accomplished leaders who report to the most senior leader in their organizations.

During the year-long program, Fellows develop relationships with and learn from Baldrige Award recipient senior executives and each other, and they complete capstone projects of strategic significance to their own organizations. They also learn the Baldrige Excellence Framework® through the lens of leadership. The Fellows program has transformed how leaders use the Baldrige framework to innovate and strengthen their organizations’ performance. 

Within a safe and confidential environment, Fellows have a unique opportunity to compare the perspectives of executives across sectors, share honest advice on leadership challenges, and use the insights gained to address a strategic challenge or opportunity within their own organizations. We encourage you to learn more about how the Baldrige Executive Fellows Program can help you take your organization to the next level.

The organization encourages you to share this announcement with executives who could benefit from their own professional development in a peer-learning environment. Applications are now being accepted. The deadline is December 15, 2023. Selection decisions will be made in January 2024.
