    Outstanding Corporate Innovator (OCI) Award

    The nominations deadline for the 2017 PDMA OCI Award has passed. 

    The Outstanding Corporate Innovator (OCI) Award is the only innovation award which recognizes sustained (5 or more years) quantifiable business results from new products and services.

    For over twenty-five years, The Outstanding Corporate Innovator (OCI) Award selection process has provided an excellent mechanism for identifying companies that create and capture value through product & service Innovation. Past OCI Award winners have proven themselves exceptionally capable of integrating strategy, people, process, and technology to consistently transfer their creative ideas into successful new products.

    The award was developed with two objectives. First, to identify and publicly recognize the excellence of companies that have been the most successful in continuously developing a stream of value-creating new products and services. The second, equally important, rationale for the award is to provide a learning vehicle for the sharing of the winning firm's individual best practices with PDMA's general membership.

    The Process
    Those nominees which pass the initial screen will be asked to complete a questionnaire detailing their new product/service development practices and innovation successes. On site examinations are held with the companies which reach finalist status. The winner(s) will be recognized and be required to share their best practices at the 2017 PDMA Annual Conference in Chicago, Illinois in November 2017.
