Could the 2017 Excellence in Project Management Award winner be a project you’ve lead or another completed by your organization?
OSPMI’s Excellence in Project Management Award celebrates excellence in project management. Projects are evaluated based on their level of successful execution of the pillars of project management: schedule, cost, scope, quality, risk, etc. As a local program, the Excellence Award focuses local projects while offering recognition and benefits to practitioners and sponsors similar to the national award. The Excellence Award operates on an annual cycle, recognizing only one winner each calendar year. Projects are objectively evaluated by a panel of local, highly experienced, PMP credential holders.
Beyond the benefit of winning the award, submitters also benefit from the submission process. During this process, submitting individuals or teams will have access to members of the OSPMI team and will receive coaching and guidance in preparing their entries. Based on this structured process, there is also a significant networking benefit to submitters as they gather inputs and obtain needed approvals.
- At least one project team member must be a member of the OSPMI Chapter during the submission year, if not already a member they can sign up during the submission process
- The total project budget must be at least $500K (US Dollars)
- The project must have been completed before the submission deadline or within the previous calendar year
