The purpose of the President's Award for Best Practices is to identify and celebrate Best Practices at UNT Health Science Center. Best Practices are integral to achieving the institutional mission. A Best Practice is a technique or methodology that, through experience and research, has proven to be the best path to a desired result, such as superior performance against key organizational benchmarks. Best Practices will include specific guidelines, tactics, and procedures for accomplishing the objective effectively and efficiently. Best Practices should include a systematic process for performance improvement, such as PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act). Best Practices are frequently employed by companies in the financial services industry, health care, government administration, education, project management, hardware and software product development, and elsewhere.
