Title: Arkansas State Veterans Home Quality Management Initiative

Peregrine was chosen to lead the Arkansas Veterans Home staff in a quality management initiative in preparation for the Arkansas Department of Veteran Affairs opening of a second long term care facility in the state.  The peregrine team worked with the staff to assess and document both highly functioning processes and processes needing improvement.  The Peregrine team of coaches and facilitators used the Malcolm Baldrige framework as a guide to overhauling the personality-driven organizational culture with a process-driven culture and a focus on action to meet patient and customer needs.  Peregrine training professionals provided platform instruction, small group facilitation, and key personnel coaching on the development and use of balanced metrics to monitor short and longer term performance of key processes.  Through interactive facilitation Peregrine led the process of assessing current mission, vision, and organizational core values to produce an organizational profile adequately defining the key characteristics of the organization and environment in which they operate.  Peregrine coaches worked with the organization leadership to promote leadership behaviors that enhance communication and engagement with the diverse workforce, key customers, and stakeholders. Our coaches worked with leaders and staff to refine action plans to support the organization’s mission.   During the course of this contract, our instructional designers and facilitators modified standard curriculum based on changing organizational demands and input from leadership as the project progressed.
