Posted by Finlay on 31st Jul 2017
The annual TVB PM Challenge will be launching again this Autumn taking it into its seventh successful year as a competition for developing project management professionals. The competition will shortly be open for entries from both corporate membership and Higher Education Institutions and offers a tremendous learning and development opportunity for participating teams and to engage directly with the APM in the Thames Valley Region.
The 16/17 competition saw a record 11 teams compete – with winners in three separate categories announced at a well-attended Finals Night. A write-up of the evening can be found here.
The challenge aims to improve the project management skills of the individuals taking part, in a real life environment which runs over a number of months and culminates in a prestigious finals night.
The prime objectives are to deliver a range of professional learning benefits to individual team members as well as corporate participants. The challenge is open to new entrants to the project management profession and students of project management and the key objectives of the competition are to provide participants with:
- The opportunity to gain early career recognition
- An excellent opportunity to develop and practice project management in a practical and competitive environment
- A benchmark of knowledge, understanding and capability against peers
- The opportunity to be mentored
- Attendance at an award ceremony in recognition of their project
The competition is open to teams of four to six people who are new to the project management profession. Teams must be made up of Students, Post-Graduates, Trainees or Apprentices, or corporate employees with no more than three years’ PM experience.
