team, or a combination of both.
F. Size and scope of performance improvement and results – In addition to the results above,
provide any additional information you’d like the judging committee to know about the business
outcome that was achieved through the project.
G. Applicability of the innovation to others – Describe how others can apply your innovation to
improve performance in their operations.
H. Success in working together – Describe how your organization worked across boundaries,
departments, or other barriers to achieve the desired results.
Importance of Thomson Reuters products to the innovation – Describe in more detail the
Thomson Reuters products or information services that were used in the innovation and their
importance to the project.
