Hi everyone. If you haven’t seen us for a while, you may not
know that we are now headquartered in Alabama. We still do what
we do best – coaching organizations to greater and greater
levels of performance. It doesn't get any better than this!
There are actually six seasons in our culture. Spring, Summer,
Baldrige, Fall, Strategic Planning, and Winter! Yes, when you have
been doing the Baldrige cycle and Strategic Planning as long as we
have, they become a season in themselves! Baldrige - from reading
and scoring an application right through the site visit process.
Planning - from environmental scanning to the tracking of successful
actions. Our kids have always known this to be true. They know
that when we get back from our summer vacation and during the winter
months, Mom and Dad will soon be up at all hours, on the phone a
lot, and traveling. It's become the Beede way of life. And that's
why we have cell phones. Call these numbers if you need to reach
us. If we don't answer, leave a message and we'll call back.
