In the mid-1980s, U.S. leaders realized that American companies needed to focus on quality in order to compete in an ever- expanding, demanding global market.
Then-Secretary of Commerce Malcolm Baldrige was an advocate of organizational assessment and quality management as a key to U.S. prosperity and sustainability. The Baldrige Excellence Framework was created in recognition of his contributions to:
An excellence model, such as that provided by the Baldridge Foundation, is one of the forces and facilitators of a highly successful organization transformation. The Criteria for Performance Excellence – or CPE – model is composed of several key components: leadership; analysis, and knowledge management; strategic planning; customer focus; measurement, workforce focus; operations focus; and finally, the importance of results.
The Global Excellence Assembly Awards is a program launched in the early 2021, inspired by the Malcolm Baldrige Excellence Framework Criteria, which has been integrated not only for organizations, government entities, private and public companies, or corporations, but also for individual development goals and assessment by the internal division of Global Excellence Assembly – The Quality Assurance and Improvement Framework Division.
Individual development plans or goals will help professionals prepare for their future, regardless of the career they have or are planning on and outline a vision for their careers and set goals to capitalize on their strengths and address their development needs. What’s more, both winners of individual and organizational categories get the benefits of being provided with a personalized Internal Feedback Report that outlines their strengths based on an internal score system, as well as any areas for improvement or suggestions, if applicable.
It is factual that talent is important among leaders, but only exceptional talent makes a real difference.
As expected, the capabilities of executives at entities in the top quartile of our recent research pool were about 20% higher than those from the bottom quartile. There was a high correlation between executives with “excellent” capabilities and financial performance, while merely “good” performances showed no correlation.
One of our best leadership examples is His Excellency Dr. Amin Hussain Al Ameeri – the Assistant Undersecretary for Health Regulation Sector (HRS) at the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention.
From all of H.E. Dr. Amin Al Ameeri’s management capabilities that were analyzed, the patient and people impact, and understanding as well as anticipating people’s needs, seemed to have had the greatest influence on corporate growth under almost any strategic situation and across various management levels at the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention.
His professional history demonstrated various significant roles in which he has implemented life-changing strategies and innovative solutions in the Healthcare sector for a period of over three decades during which H.E. Dr. Amin Hussain Al Ameeri has made several distinguished and pioneering achievements.
He has launched several initiatives to manage and optimize financial, human, and technical resources, including:
One of his various imperative roles as an Assistant Undersecretary for Health Regulations Sector in the Ministry is the participation in the process of developing the general strategy as well as the main objectives of the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) in addition to working on achieving such objectives by setting goals, policies, initiatives, and operational plans for the departments under his responsibility while following up on their implementation.
As a result, His Excellency Dr. Amin Hussain Al Ameeri is the first leader in healthcare as well as the very first to win the Global Excellence Assembly Powerful Leaders Award in 2022 due to his leadership abilities that have clearly demonstrated to produce an insightful impact towards the power to transform hospitals and healthcare organizations by improving the system not only for today but also for the future — to the benefit of patients, families, and caregivers.
Moreover, His Excellency has reputation for being a visionary leader who constantly serves with integrity, inspires innovation, concentrates on the people, thus empowering, valuing employees, maintaining a systems perspective, and achieving outstanding results.
Being a credible leader who consistently demonstrates a high level of authenticity by maintaining the highest standards of personal integrity and displaying exemplary behavior in every aspect of his duty in his role as Assistant Undersecretary for the Health Regulation Sector (HRS), His Excellency Dr. Amin Hussain Al Ameeri works to create an organizational culture in which everyone solves problems using innovative thinking.
This involves developing methods that encourage staff members to think differently about how they face challenges, as well as helping them invent ways to handle limited or stressed resources.
He is a firm believer that organizational culture can be achieved as long as leaders understand the purpose of the organization.
By having clear objectives, directions, and project plans, one can communicate these visions to the employees, give them something that they can understand, and explain their role in making it happen.
“Education with Specialization is the key to success”, he says as he exhorts everyone to pursue their goals with dedication, stating that proper planning and determination will help them achieve excellence not only in their chosen field, but in organizational levels as well.
