Hallo from the US, and I thank you for once again to giving me the opportunity to talk to you my friend at The Indonesian Quality Award, and congratulate you on another successful year for the operation of your program.

Let me also congratulate OrieAndari as the new chairman of The Indonesian Quality Award Foundation. I look forward to continued and long standing relationship with all of you, our friends in Indonesia. I chose this location today to offer my words to you because it in a way to represents the topic I would like to address, which is sustainability in a globally competitive economy, and in difficult economic time.

I am speaking from our home, the campus of The National Institute for Standard and Technology. And behind me is a brand new a test facility. It is a net zero energy residential home. A home which produces all the energy that is consumed by the residences of the home. It is a test facility to look how we might produce such home in large scale in the future in order to help one critical point of sustaining our global economy, and sustaining ourselves, and that sustaining our environment, by reducing our carbon foodprint. A topic that obvious used critical to all of us as part of the economic challenges we face.

I chose this topic in addition, because it were late very closely to the revision to the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence for 2013 and those its related specifically to preparing ourselves for a sustainable economy in the future globally, and for dealing with some other challenges we all have in this current economic time.

So, the first change that will be in 2013 criteria deals with this overall issue of sustainability not only in term of carbon food print, but the need for social responsibility and good citizenship on the part of all businesses. And I believe this will be a point of decision making in our Hallo from the US, and I thank you for once again to giving me the opportunity to talk to you my friend at The Indonesian Quality Award, and congratulate you on another successful year for the operation of your program.

Let me also congratulate OrieAndari as the new chairman of The Indonesian Quality Award Foundation. I look forward to continued and long standing relationship with all of you, our friends in Indonesia.

So, the first change that will be in 2013 criteria deals with this overall issue of sustainability not only in term of carbon food print, but the need for social responsibility and good citizenship on the part of all businesses. And I believe this will be a point of decision making in our economic decision, in our purchase decision, as well as in our business to business decision for choice of businesses that we globally will work with, in order to sustain the economy and sustain a global position for every nation in that economy.

The secondary at the time very closely to this area of designing for sustainability is the overall topic of innovation. And that probably is the most significant changed in the criteria for 2013. And that is focus on innovation management. And how we design business as organization to encourage innovation so that we can sustain an economy are going into the future.

Very closely linked to the concept of innovation, is strategy. And making strategic decision, about what we called work system. In particular, strategic decision on what we as the business will do and what we any business will rely on suppliers, partners to accomplished. And I think that the time very closely to a global economy making those strategic decisions on what our key role is as a business, what our need is, and what we will do through partners, through suppliers, will be critical for every business in deciding where they fit in a global economy. So that we can co-operate, so that we can sustain global economies, and so that we can do it in a way that sustain our environment and our quality of life as well.

So, let me conclude then my brief from marks you today by just emphasizing looking at innovation from your perspective and where you fit in the business cycle. Where you as a business individually fit in the supply chain, in innovation, in producing in a sustainable, in a social responsible way the goods and services that are needed by a global economy.

Let me again congratulate all of you on another successful year to the Indonesian Quality Award, and I look forward to hearing about your ongoing success. Have a great meeting.
