Every organisation is good at something…every organisation has strengths and weaknesses.What we want to know is what does your organization do well?  Is it communication, teamwork, response time, customer service, marketing, branding, social responsibility, attention to detail, systems, leadership, governance, strategic planning, performance measurement, information technology, product development, innovation,  employee retention or supplier relationships? What is helping your organization to succeed and why?

Get your colleagues together to think about this and enter your organisation into the BEST PRACTICE COMPETITION to be held at the World Business Capability Congress, Auckland, 5-7 December 2012.

Make sure you submit an on-line entry, by 5.00pm, 10 September 2012.   The best entries will be invited to give an 8 minute presentation at the Congress. Prizes will be given for the following categories:

  • SME (less than 20 employees) – Best Practice Gold Award
  • Large organization (more than 20 employees) – Best Practice Gold Award
  • International (for teams/organizations based outside NZ) – Best Practice Gold Award.

In addition, to the Best Practice Competition, there will be a special GLOBAL BENCHMARKING AWARD for organizations that have used benchmarking as a means to identify and implement best practices. This Award is the premier award in benchmarking and is administered by the Global Benchmarking Network (GBN).

The World Business Capability Congress aims to make a real impact on helping organisations raise their business capability through ‘Driving Excellence> Innovation> Productivity> Export Growth‘. This will be a knowledge packed event which incorporates the 27th NZOQ Conference and the GBN’s 7th International Benchmarking Conference. It will have over 100 presentations, 14 keynotes speeches, the hosting of the New Zealand Business Excellence Awards, Global Benchmarking Award, and New Zealand’s Best Practice Competition with 20 or more organisations sharing their best practices.

The Congress offers a unique opportunity to network with local and international companies, and like-minded people to discuss and create growth opportunities, to improve business performance and deliver better outcomes for all stakeholders  so that the economy and society benefits. It is in effect a one stop shop for gaining the latest knowledge on all business areas from Leadership to Strategy to Customer Focus to Measurement to Knowledge Management to Human Resource Focus and Process Management.
