Would you like to learn how to develop and support High Performance Teams?

Participant in the Granite State Team Excellence Award Process as an Applicant or a Judge!

The most successful companies, public sector agencies, and health care and education organizations have discovered how they can improve results through the formation and recognition of teams.  Private and public sector organizations are relaizing just how important work teams can be in terms of reducing costs, saving money, fostering innovation, and boosting bottom-line results.

The Granite State Team Excellence Awards program (GSTEA) is being established for the purpose of encouraging the formation of work teams, fostering their ability to perform systematic continuous process improvement, and formally recognizing organizations for their teams’ accomplishments.

This assessment process provides an opportunity to compare your team’s efforts toward project and process improvement with the best… and get the recognition you deserve! This assessment process also provides an opportunity for individuals to enhance, and be recognized for their ability to guide process teams by participating as Program Judges.

Key Dates:

Team Excellence Training: Wednesday, February 29th in Concord.   Cost: None Click here for more information

 

The GSTEA is based on the American Society for Quality’s (ASQ) International Team Excellence Award (ITEA) and uses the same criteria.  See the attachments for more details on the process and how to apply.
