Innovation in Projects

The APM Project Management Awards have been recognising excellence in project management for the past 22 years.

Awards finalists are judged to excel in three key areas: project management, results, and innovation and lessons learned.

In this special report we focus on innovation, or more specifically, innovations in projects.

Overall winner Network Rail went to extraordinary lengths to repair storm-damaged track near Dawlish in Devon, deploying water cannons to dislodge debris and drones to assess its impact.

The other finalists – Thales UK and London Underground, United Utilities, 4Delivery Ltd – used specially equipped monitoring trains, mock tunnels and a ‘buddy system’ between designers and engineers to achieve the desired outcome.

APM believes that these (and other) solutions should be showcased and shared, so that the lessons learned can continue to inspire the next generation of project innovators.
