About the Award:
The purpose of the awards is to identify, recognize and enable collective learning from the most impactful and innovative initiatives of the last 12 months.
Winners will be both companies and individuals who have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to delivering outstanding business value and wider positive societal impact through supply chain management.
Most importantly, our awards feature the voice of the profession. Successful entrants will be determined by a body of 50 of the world’s most influential C-level business leaders, alongside a group of foremost academics and, critically, an open vote across the broader supply chain professional community.
Nominees will be judged in three stages:
- The SCM World research team, led by Dr Hau Lee, will filter initial nominations.
- Semi-finalists will then have their submissions voted on by the 20,000-plus practitioners in the SCM World community to produce a list of finalists.
- These finalists will then be judged by board-level supply chain executives from 50 companies – including respected names like P&G, Unilever, Burberry, Chevron, Cisco, Schneider Electric, Nestlé, Intel and Under Armour – together with seven hand-picked academics from universities including Eindhoven University of Technology, the WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Stanford University.
