This is the fifth and final post in a series to provide an overview of AgResults’ approach to Pay-for-Results prize competition design. The firstsecondthird, and fourth posts provide details on the earlier phases of design. For more information about the entire process, check out the full design toolkit that was published in February 2021.

Are you designing a Pay-for-Results prize competition and trying to figure out how to size the prizes to effectively drive participation without overpaying for results? We are pleased to share our “Verification and Project Management” design brief, the fifth and final in a series that summarizes AgResults’ approach to designing Pay-for-Results prize competitions. In this brief (linked here), we explain how to develop a sound verification plan to evaluate competitors’ reported results and compliance with competition rules to determine prize payments. The brief also summarizes the range of activities involved in project management, including competitor engagement, dispute resolution, communications, and progress reporting.

By taking the time to develop robust plans for verification and project management, designers can create competitions that are more likely to succeed and make an impact.
