How it works
For purposes specific to the GIA, innovation is defined as an activity or initiative that brings about a paradigm shift in the way business is done in a rapidly globalizing economy. It produces a new concept to practice and makes it a commercial success. It concerns the search for and the discovery, experimentation, development, imitation and adoption of new products, processes and organizational set-ups.
Launched in 2000, the GIA winners have spanned a wide geography, crossed multiple private and public sectors, touched on a diverse range of disciplines and brought an incredible array of precedent-setting case studies. The GIA winner is selected by peers with considerable real estate, workplace, service provider and academic experience.
