The August Vote is now closed. I’ll announce the winner on Tuesday, August 23rd.
Now that the first contest is in the books, I’d like to thank Motive Action, Cpethink.com, LTD and ISC Technology for taking the time to write up and submit their entries. I was excited to read these high quality ideas that have contributed significant and tangible value to each of these companies. I’ll note that all of these companies qualified to participate because they have fully completed their application on the Supplier-Connection portal.
We had over 200 people read the entries and vote, much better than expected for our inaugural contest, especially with an August launch that relied solely on Social Media for promotion.
I could not implement two of this month’s three entries that promoted innovation (Motive Action’s “IGNITE” Employee Innovation Program, and ISC Technology’s Business Process Procedure Guide) because as a consultant I no longer have employees. But I will tell you that in the last company I ran, we implemented similar versions of each of these programs with great and lasting results.
As I read Cpethink.com, LTD’s entry on S.M.A.R.T. Goal Setting, I realized it’d been a few years since I did a formal goal-setting process. As a result I have committed to spend time with my wife in the next week writing out important goals for our future (as soon as she’s back from a family reunion, I’ll let her know!).
Thanks again for all of the entries.
Speaking to those who voted, have you put any of these ideas into action? Are you planning to? Write me and let me know.
I’ll announce the winner of our first SUPPLIER SPOTLIGHT contest tomorrow! Stay tuned.
