“High performing organizations are always looking for innovative solutions that contribute to both high academic performance and cost-effective operations. Most often, organizations are low performing not because they aimed too high and missed their target, but because they aimed too low and hit their target.”

“A close study of the Baldrige Criteria for Quality Organizations reveals 3 characteristics of
high performing organizations:

  • They define their performance relative to their peers
  • They seek to continuously improve in all areas of performance
  • They are systematic in measuring performance and results.”

“Facts are stubborn things, and whatever our wishes or desires may be, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” – John Quincy Adams
