The Innovation Award
Recognising a team or individual that has sought new and better ways of doing things and taken sensible risks to improve outcomes and successfully address an issue or challenge. This could be through:
● using innovative approaches to policy-making and delivery, such as open policy-making, behavioural insight or alternatives to regulation;
● challenging the status quo, trying something new, adapting and refining when things have not worked well, and learning in the development of policy or services;
● taking an approach that has resulted in a step-up from business as usual and delivered real benefits to customers.
