Contribution to Project Management Award 2021: Company or Consultancy

We think it’s crucial that whatever their size, structure or industry, organisations should be rewarded for leaving a positive legacy for the project profession and project management practice. 

The contribution to project management: company/consultancy category is for project management companies and consultancies operating in any sector to manage and/or deliver projects of any size. Judges are looking for organisations who want to stand out in two ways; firstly, by committing to positive and meaningful progression of the project profession (which may include the development of project professionals and knowledge/best practice sharing) and secondly, by delivering excellence in project management practice (demonstrated by a positive and measurable impact from projects and/or programmes that they have managed and/or delivered).  

We require entrants to all contribution to project management categories to produce a submission of up to 3,000 worddetailing how they have met the judging criteria. Entrants may also submit up to four supporting images or graphics only (no text apart from captions). Video and audio is not accepted as part of the submission. 

The contribution to project management categories all consist of two stages, the first stage is the written submission mentioned above and the second stage requires all finalists to present virtually to a panel of judges. They are open to organisations across all sectors globally.
