Current Article:
Global Performance Systems, Inc., is a dynamic small
business dedicated to helping people and organizations
optimize performance and achieve better results through
improved management. We specialize in the design and
deployment of integrated management systems based on
the
Baldrige Performance Excellence Criteria and Approach.

Why Baldrige?
The Baldrige framework is increasingly seen as the global
standard for achieving performance excellence. As stated in
the Introduction to the Official Assessment Guidebook for the
2004 Japan Quality Award Program:
"The (Japan Quality) Program is modeled after the self-
assessment methods of the Malcolm Baldrige Award of the
United States, which is a globally recognized standard for
management innovation practiced in over 60 countries in
Asia, Europe, and other regions. It is one of the most
advanced management innovation programs incorporating
management theories with proven results worldwide."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

The GPS Difference
Discover the GPS difference. We are quicker, more focused,
and more passionate than our competitors. We have not
"discovered" Baldrige in the last six months--our principal
consultants have worked with the Baldrige framework since
the program's inception in 1987. We have no fat. You will
always deal with a decision maker. We have no junior staff,
no support staff, no bureaucracy. At all times, the person
working with you will be a senior person with the authority
and ability to act decisively on your behalf. We never lose
sight of the fact that our job is to achieve results for YOU.

Our Approach
Assess. Analyze. Act. We ASSESS your organization to
baseline your current performance levels. We ANALYZE
alternative courses of action based on your priorities and
capabilities. We ACT with you to implement powerful,
sustainable solutions that fit your systems and culture. Your
bottom line:
Eight Weeks to Performance Excellence™.

not have any significant relationship
with improvement of business results."
