Above all, remember, the judges are turned off by hype and advertising!
The case studies submitted for an ACM award are not advertisements and should not read like one. Read a quick page of advice from Keith.
The readers of your case study are looking for information on how to best implement Adaptive Case Management in their organizations. It is a new and fledgling field, and the purpose of making such information available helps the entire market by reducing the incident of failure. Most of the ideas on how to organize people, and how to structure the information, are applicable in many products, yours included.
These books are meant to provide guidance for a number of years. Today's product features will continue to spread and evolve such that what we talk about next year may not be the hot features of today. But the lessons learned in how a particular organization approached supporting a particular situation, how well it worked, along with why it may or may not have worked well, will be information valuable for many years.
