CHICAGO /PRNewsSpreader/ -- The Daily Diddle, one of the PR profession’s leading trade publications, today announced the “Top 20” candidates for the seventh annual Diddler Awards Program. The 20 finalists were selected for demonstrating excellence in leveraging technology to enhance broadly the appearance of collaboration and thought leadership.
A panel of 12 judges, representing both government and industry, selected the “Top 20” after reviewing 115 entries and evaluating each on the following criteria: “clearly articulated means of collaboration enabled by technology; use of innovative information technology to support the objectives of collaborating organizations and strategic goals and objectives; demonstrable efficiency gains, cost advantages, or superiority over previous methods of collaboration, supported by metrics; and a sound approach to addressing security and privacy of data.” Ironically, the selection was not based on who demonstrated the most of these characteristics, but rather, who demonstrated the least.
