SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 I. Abstract The Baldrige Performance Excellence Program seeks applicants for the Baldrige Executive Fellows Program, a one-year, leadership development experience for direct reports to the most senior leader in an organization or business unit leaders. Using the Baldrige Excellence Framework as a foundation, the program discusses impactful leadership through visits to Baldrige Award recipient sites and senior leaders, virtual discussions, and face-to-face peer training using an adult learning model. Fellows will discuss how to achieve performance excellence for their own organizations, stimulate innovation, and build the knowledge and capabilities necessary for organizational sustainability. Fellows will create a capstone project that tackles an issue of strategic importance in their own organizations; capstones have included innovating supply chains and customer relationship management systems, improving health systems and their communication with physicians, and creating balanced scorecards. The Baldrige Executive Fellows Program has been nationally recognized as a leading executive-development program as part of the leadership awards, sponsored by HR.com. The program is aligned with the Baldrige Program mission to improve the competitiveness and performance of U.S. organizations for the benefit of all U.S. residents. The Baldrige Program and its Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award were created by Public Law 100–107 (The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Improvement Act of 1987) and signed into law on August 20, 1987. II. Method of Collection Senior leaders interested in applying for selection as a Baldrige Fellow must provide the following package of material directly to the Baldrige Program: 1.
