Organizational Return on Investment with QTF Award Level Application
The Quality Texas Foundation is a viable member of the improvement efforts serving communities of excellence throughout our state. Examiner survey data have estimated that a team of 6-8 Examiner volunteers contributes 2,200 man-hours, equivalent to one full-time employee (FTE), of applied expertise during the typical Award-level application assessment and feedback processes. The product of these processes, a Baldrige-format written Feedback Report, is valuated at between $300,000-$340,000. At the Quality Texas Foundation Award Level application fee and the site visit reimbursables, the benefit/cost ratio is approximately 30:1.
