Most organizations do not suffer from a lack of data. However, making sure we’re measuring the right things and using those results in a meaningful way can be challenging. Join us for a day of hands-on learning to gain new insights into how the Baldrige framework can help us better understand organizational performance and leverage results to drive improvement.
