These are individuals who involve and empower stakeholders and develop workforce and system-wide strategies. They build on successes and learn from failures, constantly looking to improve quality, impact and cost-effectiveness.

- How does the individual benefit their community?
This pivotal Award will celebrate and applaud services that have planned and implemented major transformation across their organisation with a proactive and preventative approach. These examples of transformation are likely to have impacted on the wider network with the objective of accelerating the uptake of TEC and/or streamlining processes for better outcomes.
- How have you delivered major transformation?
- What have been the effects of this transformation on people’s lives and how have you measured this?
- What were the major influences on your service transformation? How did they influence this and how did your planning for delivering the transformation reflect these influences?
