Customer-centric Judging Criteria

MPSA board members interviewed all 2010 Leadership Award submissions and judged them using an in-depth, balanced scorecard methodology. Solutions were rated based on core criteria such as strength of vision, support and level of adoption. Judges also considered MPS best practices, operational fit, flexibility and growth, as well as business benefits and ROI.

“It was important to the MPSA that we designed the balanced scorecard and the resulting judging to focus on the benefit that the proposed solution would provide to the ultimate customer,” said MPSA Vice President Justin West. “The end users are at the core of everything the MPSA stands for, as we develop standards and best practices for the industry.”
