Honeywell has been selected to receive the prestigious 2009 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for its Federal Manufacturing & Technologies (FM&T). The award is the nation’s highest honor for innovation and performance excellence.
Honeywell FM&T submitted its application in May, which was assessed by a group of Malcolm Baldrige National Quality examiners. In October, a team of examiners interviewed over 300 Honeywell employees to verify information in the application and identify Honeywell’s strengths and opportunities for improvement in its performance excellence journey.
Companies are examined in seven categories: leadership; strategic planning; customer focus; measurement, analysis, and improvement of organization performance; workforce focus; process management; and results.
Honeywell FM&T and the other four recipients of the 2009 Baldrige Award will be honored at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. next year.
