For the past 24 years, the OCI Award selection process has identified companies that create and capture value through innovation in developing new products. 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.
PDMA's OCI Award is different from other new product development awards by virtue of the rigor of the qualification and selection process. Basic requirements for receiving the award are: (1) Sustained success in launching new products over a five-year time frame, (2) Significant company growth from new product success, (3) Well defined new product development practices and processes that can be described to others, and (4) Distinctive innovative characteristics and intangibles.
Past OCI Award recipients include Apple, Bausch & Lomb, BMW, FedEx, Harley Davidson, Herman Miller, Hewlett-Packard and PepsiCo among others. Last year’s winners were Illumina, Inc. and UnitedHealth Group.
"Skyline has a history of innovation,"
“We're very proud of this nomination,”
Winning companies will receive awards during the Product Innovation Management Annual Global Conference hosted by PDMA in Orlando, Florida in October.
