Application of the Baldrige criteria in a university
The University of Wisconsin–Stout in the USA applied the Baldrige Criteria in a variety of areas that benefited the organisation, including as mechanism to integrate suggestions and feedback from all sectors within the organisation, and facilitate communication and professional development. One such example was the university’s continual assessment of courses and academic programmes as well as the non-academic units that supported the university, such as financial aid and university housing. Recently, Feedback from those involved in submitting reports assessing those areas indicated that reports could be streamlined and done more frequently as well as better integrated into existing processes. University administrators reflected on this information and integrated the feedback about the deployment of those assessment reports into the university’s processes, which helped internal stakeholders feel heard and valued.

Rapid Benchmarking using TRADE Best Practice Methodology
To address production issues of yeast and mould at its Wynyard plant, Fonterra, a NZ manufacturer of dairy products, used rapid TRADE Best Practice Methodology (TRADE) benchmarking. Another Fonterra plant was selected as a benchmarking partner and a project team was established Through detailed process mapping and physical walk-throughs differences in plant configuration were identified. Questioning the process owners (operators) further helped to understand the reasons for mould and yeast production. The control philosophy adopted at both the plants was compared to identify points of variation. Eighty eight actions were identified and prioritised based on impact, ease of implementation and timeframe for implementation. The project helped to reduce mould spores entering the building by 35% (on average) and 66% of critical contamination areas were eliminated or minimised. The running conditions of the plant were optimised to ensure a smoother start-up. Other achievements included an 83% reduction in yeast and mould downgraded product and risk reduction of AUD$500k per year.
