Hello need your advice please:

A company wants to go for the Baldridge Award, currently the company does not have a quality management system implemented such as an ISO 9001: 2008. Would it be best to try out for the ISO standard first and then to be followed by the Baldrige Award program at a later date.

I feel that the company without having the experience of having dealt with a formal structured QMS such as the ISO, going for the Baldrige would be too cumbersome and not the right approach and could actually not work out.

Must the company become SO certified, or just model the QMS around the ISO.

Let me know your thoughts to the above, really appreciated.

It's been awhile since I looked at MB...but, I don't think that it is a requirement to be ISO 9001 certified. Go ahead and correct me folks if I am wrong. I do think that it would be easier to be ISO 9001 compliant at the very least, just to have the discipline and background.:2cents:

You are absolutely correct. The MB Award seeks performance excellence of the business which can become a role model for others to emulate. So in my opinion, the organization should first implement a formal QMS based on 9001 or even 9004 although certification is not a pre-requisite for this or any such prestigious award.

You will get good responses from the subject experts of Quality.

To best of my knowledge compliance to ISO 9001 is not part of the criteria for the Baldrige Award. On the other hand I agree that implementing the ISO 9001 standard will help to establish a solid foundation to build on toward compliance with the Baldrige criteria.

It is up to your organization to decide if compliance or registration/certification is sufficient for whatever needs you have. Whatever route you choose I would suggest that you have your system evaluated by a qualified external auditor (a given if you'll pursue registration). This will give you an un-biased assessment of your quality management system.
