Bestprac is a facilitated process that supports continuous improvement and innovation in the wool industry. It differs from the traditional approach to extension in the wool industry because it enables producers to seek the improvements that they believe will really make a difference. In this paper, we describe the Bestprac project and its impact at all levels from producer group members to the National Steering Committee. We also describe the improvements that have been made to Bestprac by applying Continuous Improvement and Innovation. Those improvements include the delivery of facilitation, facilitator training and the operation of the National Steering Committee. Most importantly though, Bestprac has led to the adoption of improvements in areas such as budgeting, property management and buying and selling strategies by 75% of producer participants.
