About Us

Purpose & Passion:

Our purpose is inspiring, advancing, and sustaining performance excellence.


PEN was founded as the Minnesota Council for Quality, Inc. in 1987, as a result of Minnesota Governor Perpich’s 1985-86 Commission on Minnesota’s Economic Future. Our mission then was to improve quality, productivity, and competitiveness of Minnesota businesses. Today, we serve all types and sizes of organizations – businesses, healthcare systems and facilities, education institutions, nonprofit and governmental agencies – helping them improve and sustain outcomes.

We believe that... 

  • Our socio-economic future depends largely on the effective management of organizations throughout the region. Therefore, our goal is to help organizations of all sizes, in all sectors, and in all communities improve their operations and their performance.
  • Communities within each state will be stronger if leaders work together to solve social and economic challenges that cross organizational boundaries. Therefore, part of our focus is on providing leaders the network and means to improve the communities in which they live and work.
