Panel of Judges

The Panel of Judges bestows awards to companies at the end of the TNCPE award program cycle. Following a review of company evaluations submitted by the Board of Examiners, the Panel, a select group of experts on the Baldrige Excellence Framework, determines the award level of each applicant. The Panel also validates the integrity of the awards program assessment process.
