Who: More than 500 law enforcement personnel across 40 law enforcement agencies in Los Angeles County, including the sheriff department, other municipal police departments, and jail personnel.
What: The Los Angeles County sheriff's department, police department, superior court, district attorney, public defender, administration office, probation officers, department of the coroner, public information office, and the internal services department.
Why: 1) Tripled DNA collection rate while ensuring compliance with legal requirements. Los Angeles County now enjoys visibility and control over the third largest DNA database in the world while meeting legal requirements for obtaining, submitting and utilizing DNA evidence to support conviction and exoneration of persons accused of crimes, as well as solving cold cases by increasing the population of DNA profiles in the FBIs CODIS database. Since going live in July of 2008, the DOTS system records, shares, and archives an average 7,465 DNA collections per month, tripling the previous DNA collection rate. 2) Eliminated most human errors, reduced cost and complexity of maintaining multiple systems. The DNA collection process has been streamlined, making it much easier and faster for users to make informed decisions and complete processes. 3) Information sharing with other state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies and databases. The DOTS system empowers LAC with web services technologies, supporting new applications and consistent user access to information spread across multiple applications and organizations.

Each year we publish the winning case studies together with in-depth papers by industry thought-leaders in both print and digiital editions: Thriving On Adaptability, Empowering Knowledge Workers, Taming the Unpredictable and How Knowledge Workers Get Things Done. The inaugural book on ACM Mastering the Unpredictable was published in 2010.
Submissions should indicate specific areas of focus, however the awards winners wlll be categorized by the committee judges based on the most applicable industry vertical or horizontal function. Award categories include, but are not limited to:
Special recognition is made for outstanding demonstration of Knowledge Worker Innovation and Exceptional User Experience.
We will be accepting and judging submissions for both Adaptive Case Management (which is entirely under the control of the case manager) and Production Case Management (where the case manager has a lot, but not complete, scope for modification of the course of activity).
This list is provided in order to clarify what judging criteria will be used. Higher selection preference will be given to cases that include more of these points. It is unlikely that any single use case can demonstrate all of these, don’t worry.

Above all, remember, the judges are turned off by hype and advertising!
The case studies submitted for an award are not advertisements and should not read like one. Read a quick page of advice from Keith.
If you are pubished, bear in mind that the readers of your case study are looking for information on how to best implement 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.
