The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and SupplyChainBrain welcome your entries for the 8th annual Supply Chain Innovation Award competition and the opportunity to highlight your company's supply chain innovation success.
Finalists will be announced on the CSCMP website and conference literature (pre-conference and on site), as well as be featured in a special end-of-year issue and video interviews by SupplyChainBrain. The case studies will also be uploaded to the CSCMP website after the conference, and the team may be invited to author an issue of CSCMP Explores....
Submissions consist of a case study describing the supply chain innovation with award emphasis on innovation and measurable results.
The first step in the process is to let us know of your intent to submit an entry. Intent to submit forms with 50-word abstracts are due January 23, 2012. Final, 10-page case study submissions are due March 12, 2012. Intents will be welcome up to March 12, 2012 if accompanied by a case study submission.
Learn more by reviewing the Supply Chain Innovation Award page, the intent to submit form, and guidelines page.
The top submissions will be designated as award finalists and will present at the 2012 CSCMP Annual Global Conference in Atlanta from Sept. 30 through Oct. 3, 2012.
The presentation is the final stage of the competition. Finalists present in front of the general conference audience with a CSCMP/SupplyChainBrain panel evaluating the sessions.
Presentation and case study scores will be combined, and then the award winner and runner-up will be announced at the Annual Conference closing session on Wednesday, Oct. 3.
Companies can submit multiple case studies. There is no cost to participate in the competition, but finalists attending the conference are responsible for their own transportation and hotel (see accommodation details). Finalist teams are provided two complimentary conference registrations for the entire conference - additional team members must register on their own to attend.
