Scrimmage Technology Sweeps Innovation Categories At 2018 LTEN Excellence Awards
Minneapolis, MN – The 2018 LTEN Excellence Award Winners have been announced and presented at this year’s 47th Annual LTEN Conference in Phoenix. Scrimmage was honored with The Excellence Award for Innovation, along with its clients on the practitioner side.
The awards are sponsored by the Life Sciences Trainers & Educators Network (LTEN), the world’s largest professional association of life sciences trainers and educators. The LTEN Excellence Awards is the premier international awards program honoring best-in-class learning and development initiatives, as well as recognizing innovation and leadership excellence.
“It's our great honor every year to be able to recognize the truly incredible work these life sciences training professionals do every day,” said Dawn Brehm, LTEN Executive Director. “The awards program includes categories honoring individuals, training teams, industry partnerships and creative content and innovative approaches. It's truly inspiring to see the level of work that goes into life sciences training, and we're proud to be able to give these professionals the credit they deserve.”
Scrimmage was named the Innovation Award Winner on the provider (supplier) side. This award recognized a broad mobile technology solution for its Medical Device client, which supported different learning styles among its sales team and resulted in an overall double-digit increase in sales revenues the following quarters.
Likewise, Gilead Sciences’ partnership with Scrimmage in innovating a state-of-the-art, extensive integration project led to its Commercial Learning & Development Team to be recognized and win the Innovation Award on the practitioner side.
In acknowledgement of the competitive nature of the Awards, Scrimmage’s client and partner, Baxter Healthcare, was also recognized as a Finalist in Innovation, on the practitioner side.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the Scrimmage Team and its unwavering client-first focus, whether it is in relation to innovating new technologies and learner experiences, or going the extra mile to support our clients’ needs with new cutting-edge pathways to success,” stated Derek Lundsten, Chief Executive Officer. “Further, this recognition is quite humbling considering the breadth of stalwart finalists.”
The LTEN Excellence Awards was designed and developed in partnership with the LTEN Advisory Council and LTEN Board of Directors. The judging panel was comprised of experienced professionals working in the life sciences education and training field. Finalists are selected by a diverse group of life sciences training experts and thought leaders and, from that group of finalists, winners are awarded in each category. Likewise, LTEN Members of the Year are designated, of which Scrimmage CEO, Derek Lundsten, was given this honor in 2017.
