For the organisations, it allows the potential forrecognition of the level of their PM maturity within the organisation as well as theability to seek positive publicity for the management of projects delivered.Why should you apply?Some of the questions that are often asked about such awards programs are “what isin it for me” and “it seems too difficult to submit an entry”. In response to thesequestions, there needs to be an examination of the aspects of these awards namely: Awards are judged against a standard set of criteria which are based on therecognised competency standards Awards are judged by “industry peers” based on the written submission Entries are judged against similar projects within each award category Submissions are based on the outcomes of normal “project close-out reviews” Provides recognition for well managed, innovative project delivery Reinforces the importance of the most valued resource in project delivery – themembers of the project teamsHow often have the achievements of project teams been not celebrated and been partof an organisations marketing for future works. These awards offer a pathway to seekthe recognition of achievement and then to be able to demonstrate an organisationsreal capacity to deliver projects.For the global project management community, the Awards reinforces and showcasesIPMA’s position as the largest global federation of national based sovereign projectmanagement associations and most influential global advocacy body for theadvancement of the PM.What steps you need to take: Submit application free of charge until 10 June (avaiable on the IPMA web site) Present your achievement to the international panel of judges Prepare yourself to a participation at the IPMA World Congress in Dubrovnik.For more information please visit: http://ipma.ch/awards/achievement-awards/ orcontact the IPMA Award Office Manager Ms. Ewa Bednarczyk award@ipma.chAbout IPMAFounded in 1965 and registered in Switzerland, the International ProjectManagement Association (IPMA) was the world’s first project managementprofessional organization.
