The International Best Practice Competition (IBPC) encourages organizations to share their best operational and managerial practices, processes, systems, and initiatives and learn from the experience of others. Whilst the IBPC is a competition its main purpose is to facilitate organizational learning and assist organisations to improve their practices.

Best practices can be on any aspect of work that your organisation excels at. For example, crisis management, remote working, employee well-being, sustainability, response time, artificial intelligence, digital transformation, teamwork, customer service, branding, social responsibility, governance, future foresight, knowledge management, product development, customer focus or supplier relationships.

You are encouraged to submit your practices for assessment and improvement. The competition provides an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of individuals and teams that have been responsible for creating and/or managing the introduction and deployment of best practices.

In addition to the IBPC, organisations are encouraged to apply for:

  • IBPC’s Organisation-Wide Innovation Award. This award recognises organisations that excel in inculcating an innovation culture throughout all facets of their operation from the leadership to employees and covering all stakeholders leading to innovative processes, products and services. Further information on this award can be obtained here.
  • GBN’s Global Benchmarking Award. This award encourages organisations to share how benchmarking (comparing and learning from others) is an integral part of their improvement and innovation drive. Further information on this award can be obtained on the Global Benchmarking Network’s website

The International Best Practice Competition was founded by the Centre for Organisational Excellence Research (COER), the developers of the Best Practice Improvement Resource and the TRADE Best Practice Benchmarking methodology.
