Join Us in Discovery

Start your SPQA Journey with our Discovery Program

SPQA’s Discovery program is a partnership between SPQA and your organization. We will be with you every step of the way as you learn and apply Baldrige criteria to your organization and complete an application.

The documents below can help you decide whether Discovery is right for you. The Discovery Guide provides details on the process. If you decide to participate, complete and submit the Intent to Participate document. SPQA will reach out to you and assign you a mentor to help with the process.

  1. The Intent to Participate (PDF) must be provided prior to the Self-Assessment submission.
  2. The 2021 Discovery Guide (PDF) provides details on both the process and how the Self-Assessment and Feedback are conducted.
  3. The 2021 Discovery Self-Assessment Template which the organization will use to input its responses.
  4. The Discovery Glossary
