Unit 8

· As we have stated, self assessment is a critical component of the Baldrige process. Accordingly, this assignment will require you to engage in a reflective process and allow you to develop and articulate your own thoughts on the concept of “quality”, the Baldrige principles, organizational issues, personal and organzational learning and other important features discussed in the course.

Your paper should cover the issues above, address your learning experience in the course and identify areas of your greatest (or least if necessary) development or understanding. A well developed paper will make reference to the Baldrige principles in a coherent and thoughtful way, introduce new thinking if appropriate and show an understanding of the course materials and their application in any organizational or personal environment.

As always, length does not matter;quality does. Show a depth of thought and consideration worthy of a course in quality systems. Write clearly and in a gramatically correct manner. Remember, clarity of presentation goes a long way in enhancing the credibility of the presentation.

Please consider this paper as an exercise in academic writing. Make every effort to conform to the standards of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 5thor 6th Edition.

The assignment is due at the end of the course and is worth 200 points. Any assignment received after midnight Sunday is considered late.
