“DEVELOPING A SECTOR-WIDE DISPOSAL AUTHORITY, – A District Health Boards of New Zealand Case Study” by Amanda Cossham and Kerry Siatiras
The award went to Amanda Cossham of Wellington and Kerry Siatiras of Auckland for their case study, DEVELOPING A SECTOR-WIDE DISPOSAL AUTHORITY, A District Health Boards of New Zealand Case Study, published in the May 2007 issue of IQ. The judges would have liked to have found an article which combined the ability to engage the reader while at the same time imparting valuable information, as was the case with last year’s winning entry by Elizabeth Wheeler. While several of the shortlisted articles were lively in their presentation, they lacked the depth of research that would have made them a winner. In the end, the judges felt that the article by Cossham and Siatiras competently told an important story, and that their article has armed their colleagues in the industry with a case study which they can draw upon. As there were 2 winners, each received $200 Red Balloon Days experience vouchers courtesy of Objective Corporation.
