As the professional body for business agility, we know it’s not all about qualifications! As a reviewer, it’s important you have good 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 both 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, or have had, a relationship. Please let us know if this applies once you have received this list.

Register here and we’ll be sure to send you updates.

You will find out whether you are a successful reviewer when we have finalised the review panels. Please note, if you are not successful there will be other ways you can contribute to the awards and conference.

Dates to be aware of:  

  • 27th November – Webinar for all reviewers on the evaluation process for applications 
  • 4th December 22:00 GMT/UTC – Deadline for Awards applications
    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. 
  • 6th December – 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. At this point, you will be asked to confirm you have no relationship with the applicants you are going to review.

Reviewers will have 6 weeks to review. Note: dates may be open to minor changes, the period of December 8th – January 19th is fixed and will need the reviewer to be available for doing the review.

We strive for a maximum of 2 applications per reviewer. This will depend on the number of applications we receive and the number of reviewers we have on the review panel. Please be assured that our goal is for each reviewer not to be overloaded!

This will vary by application - we suggest to allow 8 hours of concentrated work and writing up of notes per application.

There will be two reviewer check-ins: Monday 18th September and 23rd October 2023
These sessions are optional to meet other reviewers, ask any questions about the process and guidance criteria.

Reviewer Training Webinar: Monday 27th November!
Weekly check-ins will be scheduled during the review period: 8th December - 19th January 2024

For support with the review process and criteria, please refer to the Award Reviewer Guidance PDF and the Award Reviewer Criteria. 

Reviewers will receive their Credly badge after the review process. The Credly badge is only given to those reviewers who have participated in the Awards review process.
Sharing the badge on LinkedIn can support your CV and profile.
