NCPE LogoThe National Council for Performance Excellence (NCPE) is an internationally recognized organization established to provide organizations with tools to measure organizational performance management systems and to implement continuous improvement initiatives according to the Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence.

The self-assessment survey measures performance on a wide range of key organizational performance indicators and helps to evaluate key processes, systems and results. By obtaining input from a cross section of functions, locations, and levels throughout an organization, a performance profile can be developed, which not only identifies organizational strengths and pinpoints vital opportunities for improvement, but deployment gaps as well.
