APM chairman Steve Wake is on the judging panel for the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and The Association of Cost Engineers (ACostE) Terry Bishop Award.
This award, in its third year, looks to recognise innovation within the project controls discipline.
The categories for the IET/ACostE Terry Bishop award this year are focussed around a “back-to-basics” approach; looking at the basic principles to achieving success and not over-complicating the process.
There are three award categories this year:
- Added Value – Demonstrating the added value of applying project control
- Lessons Learned – Demonstrating learning in the application of project control
- Risk Management –Demonstrating the project control contribution to the risk management process
The purpose of this award is to encourage project controllers, cost and planning engineers and risk managers to think laterally, and to consider solutions to project control issues which may be unconventional but are innovative, effective, efficient, user friendly and deliver an enhanced result to the customer.
To be in with a chance you will need to submit an abstract by 12 June 2015 that should demonstrate a value improving practice, whether it is a project tool, practice or innovative technique.
The winner will be announced at the ACostE Conference Dinner on Monday 21 September at Cranfield University.
