The 6th International Best Practice Competition and 2nd Organisation-Wide Innovation Award will be held at the Global Organisational Excellence Congress, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 10/12th December, 2018.

The International Best Practice Competition encourages organizations to share their best operational and managerial practices, processes, systems, and initiatives and learn from the experience of others. It provides an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of individuals and teams that have been responsible for creating and/or managing the introduction and deployment of best practices.

In addition, to the International Best Practice Competition (IBPC) organisations are encouraged to apply for IBPC’s 2nd Organisation-Wide Innovation Award. This award recognises organisations that have embraced best practice learning and combined this learning with their own ideas and creativity to become highly innovative. The award recognises organisations that excel in inculcating an innovation culture throughout all facets of their operation from the leadership to employees and covering all stakeholders leading to innovative processes, products and services. Further information on this award can be obtained here.
