Contribution to Project Management: Small to Medium Enterprise Award 2021

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: small/medium enterprise category is for project management organisations with fewer than 250 employees 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.

WINNER

ORGANISATION: P2 Consulting

When P2 was established, our founders wanted a consultancy that not only delivered our clients’ most challenging projects but would also provide the expertise to help radically transform their own project management (PM) capability. Our ethos is that PM isn’t “one size fits all” it needs to be fluid, to tailor around the client’s specific requirements and the skills they already have in place. And what constitutes good PM is constantly evolving. Success - for us - is leaving our client organisation more capable than we found it. This submission tells you how we do that.
