Connie Moore, formerly Forrester Vice President and leading judge of the awards for many years has some hints on what the judges look for in a winning entry.
The judges are turned off by PR hype - VERY important. This is not a press release. Please do write from the USER'S perspective, not from a Vendor's perspective. Avoid naming any vendor or service provider until the last paragraph.
Pay attention to the fact these awards are based on three main criteria: Innovation, Implementation, and Impact across the categories of Business, Process and Technology.
We're looking for something that pushes the technology in new areas, has created a major change in a positive way for the organization and has clearly demonstrated benefits.
looking for something that stands out from the crowd, something exemplary for
your particular industry. How have you moved the goalposts for your industry?
How are you using BPM for competitive advantage?
The case studies submitted for a BPM award are not advertisements and should not read like one. Read a quick page (PDF) of advice from Keith.
The readers of your case study are looking for information on how to best implement BPM in their organizations. Although it is a maturing field, the purpose of making such information available helps the entire market by reducing the incident of failure. Most of the ideas on how to organize people, and how to structure the information, are applicable in many products, yours included.
These books are meant to provide guidance for a number of years. Today's product features will continue to spread and evolve such that what we talk about next year may not be the hot features of today. But the lessons learned in how a particular organization approached supporting a particular situation, how well it worked, along with why it may or may not have worked well, will be information valuable for many years.
