The Ireland Chapter of Project Management Institute (PMI) has revealed the shortlist for the 2018 National Project Awards.
Winners of the six categories will be revealed at a gala dinner in the Dublin offices of principal sponsor PwC on November 29th.
The National Project Awards recognise and honour individuals, project teams and organisations that have excelled within the project management discipline. Submissions this year were up 38% compared to 2017.
The National Project Awards also recognise the Distinguished Contribution to Project Management, sponsored by CORA Systems, which will be announced on the night.
The independent judging panel for the awards comprises of nine experts drawn from public and private sectors. The independent verifier for the judging process is law firm Matheson.
Pat Lucey, President of the Ireland Chapter of PMI, said: “We were hugely impressed with how project teams nationwide have embraced new tools available to them. These ranged from digitising previously paper-based processes to creating new client portals, as well as adapting to how the Internet of Things will change customer behaviour.
“The successful outcomes of the shortlisted projects are testament to the disruptive impact of combining world-class project management skills with innovative technologies.”
Féilim Harvey, Partner in PwC heading up their Portfolio and Programme Management Practice in Ireland, added: “While the projects themselves were varied, a clear theme of excellence in project delivery was evident in all submissions. The project team and leads all clearly shared the same commitment to project management best practice and demonstrated the significant value of using these approaches in achieving their respective project outcomes.
“I have been truly impressed by the calibre of the submissions this year which are at the pinnacle of project excellence and a testament to what can be achieved by project management leaders. We look forward to welcoming the finalists in November to celebrate their project delivery successes at PwC.”
