Leading Continuous Improvement

Improvement Awards

2017 Project of the Year Awards

Each year Ci forum hosts the Project of the Year Awards. These prestigious awards acknowledge your excellence in improvement and allow others to learn by seeing what you have done, with entries are open to all members.

A panel of experienced continuous improvement professionals will score the presentations independently, and then work together to come to consensus on the final score. The criteria will include:
  • Stakeholder Engagement and Change Leadership
  • Project Methodology
  • Project Benefit
  • Project Alignment
Further details on the judging criteria can be found here 

Submitting an entry is designed to be as easy as possible. Simply complete the Submission template, which must be less than 500 words along with a Powerpoint presentation of no more than 12 slides. Then submit your documents by email to john@ciforum.co.nz

The top 3 entries as determined by the judging panel will be invited selected to present their project at the Ci forum Annual Conference on 9 November in Auckland.  The winner will be selected by the conference participants during the conference, with the winner announced at the end of the day.
