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.

Reviewers will have 6 weeks to review. Note: dates may be open to minor changes, but reviewers should be able to confirm their availability during December.

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 regular reviewer check-ins.
These sessions are optional to meet other reviewers, ask any questions about the process and guidance criteria.

In addition there will be the Reviewer Training Webinar, which will be recorded for those who cannot attend on the day.

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.
