Other winning characteristics could be a successful turn-around of a dying or slow moving company; successful exploitation of innovation; excellence in setting up a major new operation and bringing it into production at a high level of efficiency; successful pioneering of new markets; the re-adaptation of a business and its survival in a highly competitive market; enterprises that have succeeded by getting the very best out of their workforce. In a sentence, the judges are looking for something special for all to admire and from which we can all learn.
