There are two categories for the 2020 awards: The CIO50 and the best ICT-enabled programme that helps solve a community or social issue
First category: The CIO50
The CIO50 will showcase stories of innovation and leadership at organisations across different market sectors. There are two key pillars on the questionnaire which are: Business Innovation and Leadership.
Under the Innovation pillar, the nomination will describe the technology innovation/s introduced over the past two years that have changed the way the business operates.
Under the Leadership pillar, the nomination will describe the ways in which the technology leader has collaborated and influenced the organisation and its leadership team.
The word count for responses to questions under each of the two pillars – Business Innovation and Leadership – should be no more than 800 words (1600 words in total for both pillars).
The nominee will also share the most important lesson they learned throughout their CIO career (400 words maximum).
Second Category: ICT-enabled community project
In 2020, we will once again honour and recognise the leading organisation that has developed a technology-enabled initiative that helped address a community or social issue.
This is a separate category and recognises an organisation that harnesses technology to help address social or community issues. It will detail the impact of the programme in addressing the issue and the metrics used to determine its success over the past 12 months.
If you wish to nominate your organisation for this category, please complete the questionnaire here, and send a high resolution photograph of the nominee along with your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CIO50 leaders and the best ICT-enabled community project will be announced at the CIO50 events in Auckland and Wellington in March 2020. Watch out for more details to these exclusive events.
