To recognise the broadening range of possibilities within project management brand new judging criteria have been introduced. With a focus on achievement; the new criteria put much greater emphasis on the outputs and outcomes of projects; what they aim to achieve and what their success gives back to the profession.
The new easy to understand awards criteria have more focus on the benefits of the project, and the contribution it makes to the development of the profession. In addition to the use of project management tools and techniques, there will be an increased emphasis on storytelling, lessons learned, challenges overcome, benefits delivered to the community and knowledge delivered to the profession.
To mark the 10th anniversary of the iconic awards trophy, the categories have had a bit of a spruce up too. The revised categories of Project Professional of the Year and Young Project Professional of the Year, sponsored by QA, represent the individual awards with a broadened scope for entries by project, programme or portfolio professionals.
The Social Project of the Year, although with a new category name, still recognises the project or programme that has given the greatest benefit to a local community in the UK or overseas. This award is open to professionals in a full-time, part-time or volunteering role who is delivering benefits to their community through project management.
Alongside the renamed categories, Shell is again sponsoring the health, safety, security and environment (HSSE) award. The Shell Award category is designed for an individual project practitioner, project or programme that has made an outstanding contribution to embedding a HSSE excellence culture in their organisation or project. Entries are welcome from any sector no matter how big or small, commercial or non-commercial.
The most sought-after trophy in the profession will still be awarded to the winners of the familiar categories including Project of the Year, sponsored by QinetiQ, and Project Management Company of the Year, as well as Overseas Project of the Year. Alongside these will be Programme of the Year, sponsored by Program Framework, and the BNFL Award which is presented to the project or programme that has made an outstanding impact as a result of exceptional project management.
The awards also recognise academic achievements with categories named after esteemed APM Honorary Fellows; Geoffrey Trimble, Herbert Walton and Brian Willis. The APM Academic Awards is once again sponsored by BAE Systems.
