A project might be defined as being a planned endeavour, a piece of work that is carried out individually or collaboratively, carefully planned, resourced and managed and which leads to the achievement of a specific goal.
This award recognises those governance projects that are of such strategic significance that they could be described as transformational. These are projects that have a governance issue at their core and are exceptional in nature – that aren’t simply “business as usual”. They will have been designed to achieve a set of clearly articulated goals, underpinned by appropriate measures of success. And they will be of demonstrable benefit for the organisation, its employees, customers and other stakeholders.
The judges are looking not just for a positive story but for evidence that the work has enjoyed support at the highest levels, and that the learning has been shared across the organisation. Nominees can be individuals or teams, and the project must have been completed within the 12 months to 31 July 2023.
