IPMA International Project Management Association

Global Individual Achievement Awards Assessment Process

All submissions for the IPMA Achievement Awards are assessed on:

  • Clarity and succinctness of the application
  • Compliance with IPMA Achievement Awards Submission Guideline
  • Outstanding achievement and innovation in technical and behavioural competences
  • Quality of supporting evidence
  • Interview results

All submissions must be fully compliant with the IPMA Achievement Awards Submission Guideline and must be endorsed by the Project Sponsor, Client/Owner or your immediate supervisor. Application documents can be downloaded below. 

Assessment of all submissions, whether at the national, regional or international level, is conducted by a highly experienced panel of expert project managers using standardised application templates and judging criteria.

The assessment criteria for the Achievement Awards are based upon the ICB4 (IPMA Competence Baseline®).

After the judges have individually assessed each application, they meet to shortlist potential finalists. The judges then interview potential finalists via video teleconference or telephone. The individual judges’ scores for the interview are then added to their scores for the Application Form to determine the finalists and the recipient of the Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.
