Judging processJudging process

The judging panel look primarily at the methodology used and the results achieved, rather than organisational transformation or the scale of the project.

They will carry out an initial assessment of each entry and use the following criteria to assess entries:

  • The organisation's understanding of the problem
  • The methodology used
  • Application of the correct Lean and/or Six Sigma tools
  • Achievement of bottom line results

On the basis of their findings, the panel will then select finalists for the Award. These organisations will be invited to make a more detailed presentation about their project and following this, the panel may then choose a winner.
