The APM Midlands Branch Young Project Manager of the Year Award 2016 is open to project managers and specialists aged 30 years or under at the date of submission but candidates may not be a student. They can be working on any project where their involvement has been greater than six months.
The judges are looking for the candidate who has delivered the greatest benefit to their clients, project teams and wider stakeholders. The criteria for these categories puts a greater emphasis on the positive contribution the project manager has made to the outputs and outcomes of their project, whilst recognising the essential role that the project management techniques have in delivering success. Project management criteria are based on the APM Body of Knowledge 6th edition.
Candidates must be nominated by the Midlands Branch Corporate Member by whom they are employed or contracted. Finalists, their advocates and representatives from Midlands Branch Corporate Members will be invited to a presentation evening in on Wednesday 22 March 2017 alongside students vying for the APM Midlands Branch Student Project Manager of the Year Award 2016 and their sponsoring Higher Education Institutes. A short presentation by each of the finalists regarding the project for which they have been nominated, a keynote speaker and informal networking opportunities will precede the announcement of both the Midlands Branch Young Project Manager of the Year and Student Project Manager of the Year Award winners for 2016.
Entries for the Midlands Branch Young Project Manager of the Year 2016 are now open. A question pack can be requested by emailing YPM@APM-midlands.org.uk
Closing date for entry is 18 January 2017.
The winner will receive a trophy and package of benefits including two years free membership of the APM, a copy of the APM Body of Knowledge 6th Edition and £50 of Amazon vouchers.
