All winners get published (with their permisson). Previous recent winning submissions were published in “Thriving On Adaptability“, “How Knowledge Workers Get Things Done” and “Empowering Knowledge Workers.”
We work with leading industry analysts Forrester and Gartner who use these case studies to analyze ACM technology suppliers, illustrate trends, industry growth, ROI and more…

This list is provided in order to clarify what judging criteria will be used. Higher selection preference will be given to cases that include more of these points. It is unlikely that any single use case can demonstrate all of these, don’t worry.
Integration of outside tools and social media (“mash ups”) to facilitate communications and assist with data visualization
How a case manager is able to plan timelines for the case, including the identification of stages and milestones
How the goals of the case manager are recorded and displayed to others, and how roles and teams can be defined within the context of the case
Support for mobile devices and other “iWorker” environments and usage models
How a case manager can retain lists of experts that can be drawn into their cases on a needs must basis
The cohesiveness of the system as single application/environment, whether virtually or physically, imposing a single point of access
Availability of reusable templates for initiating new cases, including the use of completed cases as templates
Ability to create standard correspondence (letters, emails, etc.,) at any point in the case, capturing context of interaction and responses
Explicit support for goal-seeking and goal-driven processes, and whether goals can be modified in-flight
How knowledge captured during the performance of case work supports the identification and creation of new processes or case rules (not requiring IT/developer involvement or redeployment)
How knowledge is captured and held by the system, including the dynamic and static exchanges between participants
The degree of guidance provided by the system, based on the current context of the case, including the ability to initiate collaboration with other knowledge workers
Extent and quantifiable impact of productivity improvements (including financial and non-financial such as reduced re-work and improved customer and/or employee satisfaction
The extent of explicit training and change management required for knowledge workers, versus the ability to eliminate training through in-flight guidance
Better records and data management practices connected to improved case management e.g, ability to identify cases, organize content distinctly from other cases, allow cross-references and linkages between cases)
Demonstrated productivity improvement based on greater visibility, such as prioritizing activity across multiple cases, balancing workload, monitoring quality, timeliness and speed
Examples of problem resolution through easier management of roles, authority (access privileges), and improved communication
It is unlikely that any single use case can demonstrate all of these, don’t worry. These points are provided in order to clarify what judging criteria will be used. Higher selection preference will be given to cases that include more of these points.
Above all, remember, the judges are turned off by hype and advertising!
Submission Guidelines from Keith Swenson, WfMC Chair
The case studies submitted for an award are not advertisements and should not read like one. Read a quick page of advice from Keith.
The readers of your case study are looking for information on how to best implement Adaptive Case Management in their organizations. It is a new and fledgling field, and the purpose of making such information available helps the entire market by reducing the incident of failure. Most of the ideas on how to organize people, and how to structure the information, are applicable in many products, yours included.
These books are meant to provide guidance for a number of years. Today’s product features will continue to spread and evolve such that what we talk about next year may not be the hot features of today. But the lessons learned in how a particular organization approached supporting a particular situation, how well it worked, along with why it may or may not have worked well, will be information valuable for many years.
