Successful organisations receive:

  • Feedback report from an independent panel of expert reviewers
  • A chance to tell your story at the Agile Business Conference
  • Receive recognition and acknowledgement as an outstanding organisation
  • Be part of a new style of Conference that’s changing the way we work

This is a great opportunity to receive public recognition and publicity around your achievements and to present at the Agile Business Conference. A badge, certificate and kudos will be awarded along with the recognition. There is no cash prize.

The deadline for awards applications is 4th December 2023.

Successful organisations will be contacted the week commencing 29th January 2024 and invited to speak at the Agile Business Conference 17-18th April 2024.

The Agile Business Conference will be delivered live. Recorded sessions will be used as needed to account for the variance in time zones.

All our Award Winners are invited to speak at the Agile Business Conference, and we will record those talks and add them to the Agile Business Consortium website. These videos will be available to anyone visiting our website. We may also use the content of your talk, appropriately attributed, within other resources and case studies published by the Consortium.

Successful organisations will be recognised for excellence in the category for which they have applied. There are currently no categories exclusively dedicated to individual excellence, although this can be covered in an organisation’s entry.

The review panel’s assessment will be based on the Framework for Business Agility. The application therefore has to:

  • Describe what has been achieved in the areas of the Framework for Business Agility
  • Provide evidence (including screen-grabs, verbatim quotes, pictures) which can be uploaded to support the story

There are four awards categories this year: 

  1. Agility in Finance, Procurement​ & Contracts
  2. Agility in HR​ 
  3. Agility in Marketing
  4. Overall Business Agility

The Agile Business Consortium reserves the right to move applications to a different category.

We aim to select 12 winners; outstanding organisations that provide examples of excellence across all the categories.

Every entry will be reviewed by three independent reviewers. Each reviewer will be given a list of applicant names, before submissions are sent to them, to ensure there is no conflict of interest.

Yes, these awards are designed to shine a light on great practices within functional divisions as well as across a whole enterprise.

The overall list of reviewers will be made public after all submissions have been received, 4th December 2023.

Just know they are knowledge experts in that field, and you will want to impress them!

No, not on this occasion! We want to stay as inclusive as possible and choosing a location will exclude many. Virtually, we can reach you all, and without the stress of travelling!

If you would like to opt into a physical meet, please let us know and we can consider this for alternative events and opportunities.

Award entries will be assessed by an independent panel of experts within the broad perspective of the Framework for Business Agility.

Who can enter or nominate:

  • Organisations intentionally aligning their marketing to agile principles and practices
  • Organisations including marketing in a wider agile transformation
  • Organisations applying agility only within marketing
  • Membership of, or affiliation with, the Agile Business Consortium is not required
  • Organisations also entering other categories of these awards
  • Organisations may nominate themselves to enter
  • Organisations sponsoring an award category may nominate other organisations for that category

Who cannot enter:

  • Organisations sponsoring an award category
  • Third parties representing an organisation
  • Organisations or divisions that have applied successfully within the past 3 years
  • Consultancies and those providing services related to agile working

We’d like to emphasise this isn’t a competition, it’s an opportunity to congratulate one another on how far we’ve come. We are unable to share direct information about others who have applied. Should you wish to apply, you can be sure of high level of privacy around the details you will share.

You may have the opportunity to host sessions during the live event should you wish too.

As the professional body for business agility, we know it’s not all about qualifications! As a reviewer, it’s important you have strong experience in the category you’re looking to review and a deep understanding of agile and business agility.

No due to conflict of interest, you are unable to apply and review.

Before receiving applications for review, you will be sent a list of applicant organisation names. This is so that no reviewer will evaluate entries from organisations with whom they have a relationship or potential conflict. Please let us know if this applies once you have received that list.

You will find out whether you were a successful reviewer sometime in November when we have finalised the review panel. Please note, if you are not successful there will be other ways you can contribute to our awards conference.

Currently we don’t have any dates finalised, however; this year, the reviewers were sent their applications at the beginning of January, and had 3 weeks to review them; if you commit, please bare this time scale in mind.

It will depend on the number of applications we receive and the number of reviewers we have on the review panel, I am afraid we cannot be specific at this time.
