Framework for Excellence


The strategic management framework for performance excellence here in Dover consists of a system of six interrelated processes yielding results that meet the immediate and long term needs of our varied customers. The systematic processes and result categories, adapted directly from the Baldrige National Quality Program Criteria for Performance Excellence, are as follows:

1.  Leadership 
2.  Strategic Planning 
3.  Customer Focus 
4.  Measurement, Analysis and Knowledge Management 
5.  Workforce Focus 
6.  Operations Focus 
7.  Results

These categories are integrated into an overall strategic performance management system as illustrated here.
