The Quality Texas Foundation Regional Program offers a Continuous Improvement Certification (CIC) in collaboration with The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP).
Learn about proven strategies for both organizational and personal success in the workplace by using the National Malcolm Baldrige Excellence Framework and engaging in case studies of successful organizations. Receive the latest information about organizational and personal improvement from the Harvard Business Review and the Sloan MIT Management Review along with a variety of sources to include continuous improvement books, articles, and websites. Build self-awareness, improve writing skills, enhance critical thinking skills, and be immersed in best business practices. At the conclusion of the training, participants should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the Baldrige Excellence Framework, and implement strategies for understanding the present status of their organization from the perspective of Leadership, Strategic Planning, Customer Service, Information Analysis/Knowledge Management, Workforce Engagement, Process Management, and Results.
