Non-Competitive Management Assessments

Non-Competitive Management Assessments are based on the seven categories of the Sterling / Baldrige Criteria and are conducted year round with the exception of the Sterling Challenge. These varied processes give you the opportunity to choose the right assessment tool for your organization, interact with Sterling/Baldrige experts, and receive a feedback report with strengths and opportunities for improvement, as well as recognition at the Annual Sterling Conference.
