Moving Winners Forward

Managing projects often means dealing with ever-increasing complexity and volatility. Project managers and their teams are required to give their best to achieve the desired outcomes for stakeholders, organizations or society. Are these achievements recognized enough? In IPMA Awards they are!

orangeIPMA awards excellent projects through the IPMA International Project Excellence Award, “the Oscar” in Project Management, so to speak. The Award supports professional project management in achieving high performance in projects. It motivates project teams to identify and optimize the use of their strengths. Standing as a Winner, on the stage, in front of an international audience is one of the greatest recognitions a project manager and the team can receive.

orangeIn 2013 we added the IPMA Achievement Awards to our portfolio. We have 4 categories of Achievement Awards. The Awards for Internationally Funded Humanitarian Projects and the Community Service/Development Projects recognize management of projects from non-profit sector. Individuals showing excellent performance in the field of project management are recognized in two other categories: Project Manager of the Year and Young Project Manager of the Year.
