Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence pays off for manufacturer
The foundation for success at Milliken & Company, a US manufacturer, was built on the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence. Milliken began to assess itself internally using Baldrige standards until the Baldrige Criteria became completely ingrained in the way employees thought and the way they worked. Internal Baldrige competitions with five different categories were set up with businesses and support areas competing. The application process used was exactly the same as the Baldrige process, with trained judges and site visits throughout the company. Adoption of the Baldrige criteria also led to global study missions for industry best practices. The company won the Baldrige Award in 1989 and got so much out of it that it applied and eventually won the European quality award, the Canadian quality prize, and the British quality award.
