Northwest Missouri State University Provost Dr. Timothy Mottet is one of 18 executives selected recently to the prestigious Baldrige Executive Fellows Program, the only executive leadership fellowship that provides one-on-one access to leaders of Baldrige Award recipient organizations and the opportunity to learn role-model leadership strategies from these high-performing executives.

As provost, Mottet is Northwest’s chief academic officer. He joined the University Aug. 1, 2014, and has nearly 20 years of experience in higher education that also includes teaching and extensive scholarship and research activities.

The Baldrige Executive Fellows uses the Baldrige Excellence Framework as a foundation to study how world-class organizations and their senior leaders achieve strategic and operational excellence and stimulate innovation. Within a collegial environment, the Baldrige Executive Fellows has a unique opportunity to compare the perspectives of executives across sectors, share candid advice on leadership challenges, and use the insights they gain to address a strategic challenge or opportunity within their own organizations.

The cohort of Baldrige Executive Fellows will tour the sites of the past Baldrige Award recipients and engage with chief executive officers of Baldrige Award-winning organizations and other executives, national leadership award winners, and Baldrige Executive Fellow alumni. In addition, the latest Baldrige Executive Fellows will participate in two Baldrige Quest for Excellence® conferences, as well as facility tours, behind-the-scenes tours, and interactive leadership roundtables.

The Baldrige Executive Fellows Program has been highlighted with a first-place award in the government and military category of the Leadership 500 Excellence Awards, an annual recognition of the world’s best leadership development programs and initiatives. In addition, the Baldrige Program has been named in the top seven across all categories.

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker has said of the Baldrige Executive Fellows Program, "I am committed to encouraging and enabling organizational success in every dimension of performance. I believe that the Baldrige Executive Fellows Program empowers executives to lead their organizations at new levels of excellence."

In conjunction with NIST and the private sector, the Baldrige Program manages the Baldrige Award, which was named after Malcolm Baldrige, the 26th U.S. secretary of commerce, and established by Congress in 1987. The Baldrige Award promotes innovation and excellence in organizational performance, recognizes the achievements and results of U.S. organizations, and publicizes successful performance strategies.
