July 8, 2019 -- 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.
