HSATM Partner wins 2007 Malcolm Balridge Award

Congratulations to the U.S. Army Armaments Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC), one of the HSATM Partner Organizations, for winning the Malcolm Balridge award in 2007.  In a letter written by Dr. Joseph Lannon in 2010 on the occasion of his retirement as ARDEC Technical Director, HSATM is cited as a factor in ARDEC's process of continuous improvement that led to the winning of this and previous awards based upon Baldrige criteria: "Ideas brought back from Alliance Roundtable meetings and Conferences have been used to sharpen our processes in creating and implementing new technology programs.  It is no coincidence that ARDEC has won the President's Quality Award twice, the Army's Community of Excellence award twice, and the Baldrige Award - national awards requiring an organization to show continuous improvement in business processes - during the time we have been HSATM members.  HSATM provided opportunity upon opportunity to acquire and experiment with new ideas and get feedback from faculty and from other practitioners who had tried similar things in their organizations."
