Finalists - APM Outstanding Achievement Award 2020

This is the most prestigious of the APM Project Management Awards. It is the equivalent of a ‘Lifetime Achievement’ award. It reflects a contribution to the profession, be that as a single effort or as a sustained set of activities over a long period and is awarded at the discretion of APM.

Congratulations to our winner who was announced on the night.


PROJECT: Lieutenant General Tyrone R Urch CBE, Commander Home Command 

It seems only right, that in a year dominated by a global pandemic - which has challenged the norms for the project profession - that APM pays tribute to an individual at the heart of the work done to respond to this crisis.

The 2020 recipient of this award is Lieutenant General Tyrone R Urch CBE, Commander Home Command and Standing Joint Commander (UK).

With regard to the pandemic, Lt Gen Urch focused on defence support for the Covid 19 response, which occurred in addition to actions to ensure effective support to maintain military preparedness. In this role he has led the planning and organising for delivery of operations, involving around 30% of UK based Army capability, all undertaken at unprecedented speed. He is also a graduate of the UK Government's Major Project Leadership Academy.
