Who is evaluating the cases ?

The cases are evaluated by the international jury panel of eight renowned experts, Prof. Christine Legner and the CC CDQ Community. If necessary (in case of a drawn) Prof. Christine Legner, as chair of the jury,  will decide. 

How is the evaluation  process?

In the first phase, each case is evaluated by minimum three jury members. Based on the evaluation, the three finalists are selected. The finalists are the three best ranked cases.The finalists will be announced on 25 October 2018.

The cases of all three finalists are (re)evaluated by all jury members. This evaluation counts 50% of the score. The other 50% of the evaluation is done by the CC CDQ Community. The finalists present their case at the CC CDQ December workshop in Cologne. Every participating company will evaluate the case by the same criteria and scale like the jury. The case with the highest evaluation result will receive the “CDQ Good Practice Award 2018”.  If necessary (in case of a drawn), the chair of the jury,  Prof. Christine Legner will decide.
