Cbar Program

The Passport Program is a standardized exercise that promotes action and innovation.

Cbar Program promotes excellence in organizational management by recognizing exceptional leaders who use the framework of the Passport Program to exceed customer needs and expectations. This program features a cycle of tactical planning, performance measurement, evaluation, and re-planning. This award recognizes four levels of achievement: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.

With the assistance of an instructional template, individual organizations plan and execute a strategy of progress within the field of resource management. Specifically, they identify an opportunity for innovation; prescribe a program to address the opportunity; implement the program; measure the results; and undertake further action to improve future outcomes. It is a description of the organizations' overall experience that is submitted to a panel of veteran APICS volunteers and regional leadership. The panel evaluates the programs and provides objective guidance through instructional feedback.

The Passport Program encourages strong organizational management practices, including solid strategic planning, continuity among leadership, and recruiting and retaining members.

Individual members also benefit by learning management skills that translate to on-the-job success. These skills involve stronger communication techniques, enhanced writing abilities, expanded leadership acumen, and sound financial practices.

In addition to the panel evaluation and guidance, organizations also receive continued Society support, recognition and achievement awards at the annual Volunteer Leadership Recognition Reception, and publicity from a year-long campaign on the APICS Website.

The Platinum Award recognizes organizations that have consistently demonstrated superior organizational management skills by receiving the Gold Award for five or more consecutive years, indicated strong integrative and innovative skills, and demonstrated exceptional growth.

The Santa Clara Valley Chapter was a proud recipient of the Platinum Award for receiving the Gold Award for five consecutive years 1983, 1984, 1985,1986 and 1987, and again in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
