ToP of the Cop’s
Last year we ran an internal ToP of the CoPs scheme where each month we would look at a particlar topic and at the end of the year we asked for a written nomination from each community why they should be the CoP of the Year.
This went down really well, and when other communites outside of the IDeA. They kept asking “can we enter it next year”.
A year on and this is what has happened
We broke it down into three award categories:
- innovation and creativity
- efficiency through collaboration
- effective facilitation team
Each category had a winner and a special commendation. The overall winner was selected from the winners in all three categories.
There were many nominations, representing the whole public sector that use http://www.communities.idea.gov.uk.
