Best Practice Conference

Your organization culture and overall success can be transformed and we can show you how.

A little over ten years ago we started on a journey that not only changed our culture and quality but led us to be ranked among Fortune’s Great Places to Work lists for four consecutive years. We also achieved a Vision 2020 goal when we won the prestigious presidential award for excellence: the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 2018.

At the best practice conferences, you will learn the strategies we developed using the Baldrige framework. You will also learn our secret to an engaged workforce committed to continuous improvement. You will leave with takeaways designed to help your organization become a great place to work and achieve world-class results.

Multiple dates are available.

We are passionate about sharing what we’ve built using the Baldrige framework.

Leadership Retreat Center

Tri County Tech is expanding their footprint to develop a Leadership Retreat Center with the purchase of Jarrett Farm. As Oklahoma’s first career tech center, founded in 1967, Tri County has positioned itself as a leader in organizational excellence earning several distinguished achievements both regionally and nationally.

The retreat center will feature an event space for leadership and team development opportunities, executive education services, a specialty restaurant, and rental units for lease outside of retreats. The development of the property into a full-scale Leadership Retreat Center will also have a substantial positive economic impact on the Bartlesville economy.
