At the Alamo Colleges, we believe in an integrated approach to organizational performance management that results in
(1) delivery of ever-improving value to students and other stakeholders, contributing to organizational sustainability;
(2) improvement of our overall effectiveness and capabilities; and
(3) organizational and personal learning.
Our approach is the Criteria for Performance Excellence created by the Baldrige Performance Excellence Program and sponsored by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST).
We believe in being informed by data before making decisions, and we believe that everything can be improved.
