Global Process Awards – deadline approaches

If you have a process/performance story to tell here is the opportunity. 

The BP Group regard this as the currently best forum for sharing the stories of your projects, the learnings, the “I wouldn’t do this if I was starting over again” insights.

In 2012 I was privileged to watch the success of the US Navy Seals delivering massive successful change in a very traditional organization. Or the UK’s Bolton NHS saving hearts and minds. Or even SIngapore government transforming their business. What about PolyOne and their Lean Outside In success?
 
Get your feet on the deck and share also – deadline looms……
