Judging Panel

An independent panel of recognised and expert judges, representing the operational discipline, will determine the winners of the Operational Excellence Awards.

Our focus is to deliver a balanced judging assessment from seasoned practitioners who will bring their extensive knowledge, enthusiasm and expertise to the judging process ensuring that the winning entries are truly outstanding and worthy of receiving an Operational Excellence Awards.

The panel is carefully selected to ensure the Awards' judging process is fair and objective. The judges are bound by a strict confidentiality agreement and are required to declare any conflict of interest in entries over which they deliberate, in which case that entry will be reallocated. The integrity of this process lies at the very heart of all that we do.

We recognise and respect the sensitive nature of the information submitted in the entries. Submissions are not disclosed or discussed outside the judging process. We do not publish the names of companies, organisations or individuals that have not been shortlisted for an Award, nor will we reproduce any information from your entry unless prior permission is given.

comprehensive judging process has been put together to decide the worthy winners of the Operational Excellence Awards.
