Shortlisted process innovators will pitch their innovative process ideas to a panel and the audience. Any method of getting their idea across is supported, but the clock is ticking and the Process Dragons and audience will have their questions. Fast and furious is the pace, and only attendees and the panel will vote for their favorite.
