ABSTRACT

The criteria and core values of the Baldrige National Quality Award provide a seven-part framework for organizational excellence through deployment of effective, systematic, aligned and integrated approaches in the areas of leadership; strategic planning; customer and market focus; measurement, analysis and knowledge management; human resources; and process management. The Baldrige assessment process is used throughout the United States by businesses, schools, health-care providers, not-for-profit organizations and government agencies. The authors describe how arts administrators can apply these concepts in self- and organizational assessment, which, in turn, provide the basis for a continuous-improvement plan. They look at several of the Baldrige criteria and illustrate how these apply to arts administration.

RÉSUMÉ

Les critères et les valeurs essentielles du programme de qualité national Baldrige (Baldrige National Quality Award) se concrétisent dans un processus en sept étapes vers l'excellence organisationnelle fondé sur l'adoption d'approches efficaces, systématiques, centrées et intégrées dans les domaines suivants : leadership; planification stratégique; orientation client et marché; mesure, analyse et gestion du savoir; ressources humaines; et gestion des méthodes. Le processus d'évaluation Baldrige est utilisé partout aux États-Unis par des entreprises, des établissements d'enseignement, des fournisseurs de soins de santé, des groupes sans but lucratif et des organismes gouvernementaux. Les auteurs décrivent comment les gestionnaires du secteur des arts peuvent appliquer ces concepts à l'évaluation personnelle et organisationnelle, ce qui, en retour, fournit la base d'un plan d'amélioration continue. Ils analysent plusieurs des critères Baldrige pour illustrer comment ceux-ci s'appliquent à la gestion des arts.
