    mman,
    Go to the NIST web site @ http://www.quality.nist.gov/
    It tells you a great deal about the award.   As an ex-Baldrige examiner – it’s your best starting point.   Also, if you are really interested in arcane Motorola folklore you have come to the right forum.  It abounds here, if you can handle the who-did-what-to-whom-when riots the postings start.

    Hi SSNewby
       Thank you greatly for your “wise”advice.What do you mean by “start-point”?Does  it mean you don’t like to work as examiner in another cycle or is it not possible?What are the best creteria  for an active candidate?kind regards.

    mman,
    There was more wiseacre than wise advice, I’m afraid.  But, regarding start-point, I just meant it is a good point to start getting relevant information about MBNQA.   From the horse’s (NIST) mouth.  Then start getting the thoughts and opinions of others.   I enjoyed my Baldrige work and felt/feel that it contributed to our nation’s understanding and application of quality principles.   It really is, to me anyway, a good thing to do – it is service to your country and its people.  Sounds funny, I know, but it is volunteer work and it makes a difference.  It is possible to do it for many years and I will do it again in the future, but I don’t have time at this point.   By an active candidate I don’t know if you mean an award candidate or an examiner candidate.   If it’s award candidate – the criteria is amply described on the NIST web site.  If it’s examiner candidate – the criteria is less specific, but mostly a demonstrated and sustained knowledge of the quality field.  However, I certainly met a lot of fellow examiners who had very diverse backgrounds.  If you are interested in finding out more, there is a list of current Baldrige examiners on the NIST web site, along with their contact information.

    Absolutely agree with responses from ssnewby…. Suggest you take his advice, as stated.
    I will risk starting another flaming thread by offering my thoughts:
    According to several sources, Motorola began SS process in 1985. Won the Baldrige in (I think) 1989 because of (among many other things) substantiated progress toward the 6 Sigma goal using a defined, validated process.
    If this info is really important to you, I strongly suggest you do more research than just relying on someone’s memory and cmts from a web site. There is a lot of info out there, lots of Motorola history, lots of validated documentation on the NIST website and ASQ materials.
