Congratulations to Logan’s Vice President of Strategic Performance Continuous Improvement Lee Van Dusen, DC, who has been named to the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award Board of Examiners for 2019. The Baldrige Award is the nation’s highest honor for organizational innovation and performance excellence.
Dr. Van Dusen said he is honored to be selected to this prestigious group. “Being involved in the award process, you learn a lot both individually and for your organization,” he said. “I look forward to serving among colleagues representing various businesses and organizations across the United States.”
Examiners are appointed by the Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology Director and are responsible for reviewing and evaluating applications submitted for the Baldrige Award, as well as other assessment-related tasks. The examiner board is composed of more than 325 leading experts competitively selected from industry, professional, trade, education, health care, and nonprofit (including government) organizations from across the United States.
Those selected meet the highest standards of qualification and peer recognition, demonstrating competencies related to customer focus, communication, ethics, action orientation, team building and analytical skills. All members of the board must take part in a nationally ranked leadership development course based on the Baldrige Excellence Framework and the scoring/evaluation processes for the Baldrige Award. They must also complete an independent review of a Baldrige Award application or other comparable examiner task.
