Outstanding people, projects and PMOs

Outstanding people, projects and PMOs a highlight as the finalists are announced for the 2013 New Zealand Project Management Awards

The Project Management Institute of New Zealand (PMINZ) are pleased to announce the finalists for the 2013 NZ Project Management Awards.

The New Zealand Project Management Awards are now in their 5th year. These awards have grown steadily in stature and importance as PMINZ has pursued the recognition of outstanding project management achievements as a part of its vision for raising the profile of the project management profession. Participation of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, the Hon Bill English, at this year’s PMINZ Annual Conference in September demonstrates the importance of the profession to New Zealand’s economy.

This year saw the number of nominations increase to record levels as organisations from a range of industries used the awards as a vehicle to acknowledge the great work they had done on the delivery of successful projects and the people who oversaw that success.

This year will include the inaugural PMO of the Year award, which recognizes the increasing influence of Project, Programme and Portfolio Management Offices in enabling improved organisation success through effective projects.

Calum Robertson, Vice President of PMINZ and member of the Awards judging panel, has been heartened by the number and standard of nominations this year. “As the Project Management profession matures in New Zealand we are seeing consistent improvement in the number and quality of nominations and 2013 has provided the strongest group yet. These awards recognise excellence by individuals, teams and organisations in achieving project management success. All finalists are worthy contenders and demonstrate a high standard of project management practice evident across New Zealand”.
