DD&F Consulting is Awarded the Governor’s Award for Performance Excellence!

Thursday, October 13, 2016

(LITTLE ROCK, AR–October 15, 2016) – DD&F Consulting Group, Inc., headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas, recently received top honors when presented with the Arkansas Governor’s Award for Performance Excellence.  The award was a part of the Arkansas Quality Awards program which partners with the prestigious Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award process.  The award was presented to Randy Dennis, President of DD&F Consulting Group, by Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchison during the 22st Annual Awards Celebration held in Little Rock in late September.  Twenty-seven organizations throughout the state participated in the program this past year.

The Arkansas Quality Awards program is open to all sizes and types of businesses, industries and government entities, and includes four award levels that require a stringent multi-year process that evaluates leadership, strategic planning, client focus, measurement analysis and knowledge management, the workforce, operations, and results.

DD&F began the process in 2010, working through criteria that contain core values and concepts exemplified by high-performing organizations.  Commenting on receiving the highest designation in the awards program, Randy Dennis stated, “When we began this process a little over five years ago, we “thought” we were pretty good at what we did.  Going through the Governor’s Quality Awards process quickly taught us that just thinking we were good wasn’t good enough.”  He continued, “This award is something to celebrate, but it is also something we accept humbly.  Our standards are higher now, as is our ability to meet them.  DD&F is a better company than it was five years ago.  I would encourage any organization or business that is truly committed to excellence to consider getting involved.”
