Choosing the Best Innovator
The prize winners of the Best Innovator competition will be chosen using a transparent selection process.
1. Your Best Innovator team completes the online questionnaire"
Innovation will initially be assessed by applying both qualitative and quantitative criteria. In addition, there will be an opportunity to provide further information on particularly innovative approaches within the company/business unit. The panel of judges will analyze the questionnaire and short list finalists.
2. Representatives of the judges will visit the finalists at their respective companies.
The winners will be selected after the site visits:
After evaluating the "paper version", a half-day site visit rounds off the assessment of the finalists' innovation competence. Winners of the competition will be selected using a structured assessment system based on the questionnaire and site visit.
3. All contestants will be presented with an individual analysis.
The winners will be announced in the BILANZ:
An analysis of the questionnaire and/or company visit will be included in a confidential assessment sent to each contestant at the end of the competition. The Best Innovator and all other finalists showing outstanding achievement in a specified category and/or industry will be featured in the BILANZ and awards will be handed over during a celebration event.
