TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- Nouri Petrochemical Company, a leading Petrochemical firm in Iran, has emerged victorious by securing the coveted 5 and 6-star awards in the 9th edition of the International Best Practice Competition held in 2023. The company's triumph places it ahead of prominent entities like Saudi Aramco and numerous other reputable global firms.

According to the Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company, Nouri Petrochemical Company made its inaugural appearance in this prestigious international competition and impressively clinched the 5 and 6-star awards in the "Digital Process Improvement Tools" and "Systematic and Digital Knowledge Management" categories, respectively.

This annual competition, now in its ninth year, is organized by three esteemed international institutions - the Center for Organizational Excellence Research, Global Benchmarking Network, and Best Practice Improvement Resource - in New Zealand. It gathers international experts and prominent industrial companies from around the world to assess and recognize exemplary practices.

The rigorous selection process began with evaluating approximately 100 processes from different countries, including Australia, China, the United States, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, India, the Philippines, Chile, the United Arab Emirates, Iran, Malaysia, Egypt, and more. Eventually, 30 processes reached the final stage of the competition. Among them, the "Digital Process Improvement Tools" process received high scores during the presentation and defense sessions, earning it the prestigious title of "Excellent International Best Practice."

Moreover, Nouri Petrochemical Company's "Knowledge Management" process, having already stood out above many major global companies, particularly Saudi Aramco, was selected as one of the top 14 processes in the competition. Following the international jury's meticulous audit, it was awarded the 6-star recognition as the "Outstanding International Best Practice," thus elevating the achievement to a level one notch higher than the "Excellent" accolade.

The final evaluation by the expert jury praised Nouri Petrochemical Company's activities, hailing it as one of the most comprehensive management systems in the world. This accomplishment reflects the company's high level of maturity, proper planning, strong management support, and effective implementation throughout the organization. The recognition confirms that the highlighted processes at Nori are indeed excellent international best practices and can serve as a benchmark and precise model for other companies to emulate.

It is worth noting that a meticulous six-month preparation process, including preparing English-language statements for each process, responding to jury feedback, refining the statements, summarizing them, preparing reports, and participating in numerous defense sessions in front of international jurors, paved the way for this significant international success for the Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company for the first time.

The main award levels in this prestigious international competition include the three-star "Best Practice" award at the country level, the four-star "Best Practice" award at the regional level, the five-star "Excellent" international best practice award, the six-star "Outstanding" international best practice award, and the seven-star "World Class" international best practice award.
