Celebrating success is important – it helps recognise great achievements and inspires people to deliver their best.
Project managers may not always feel they get the recognition they deserve for all their hard work and efforts, but thankfully that is exactly what the NZ Project Management Awards aim to achieve.
The awards, presented by the Project Management Institute of New Zealand (PMINZ), were announced in Auckland last week, as part of the annual New Zealand Project Management Conference.
We exhibited at the conference itself – it was an enjoyable two days with loads of great networking opportunities, informative talks and reunions with old friends.
The master classes and keynote speakers provided some excellent insights into the current state of project management and agile was front and centre.
However, the Project Management Awards were the highlight of the event.
Now in their eighth year, we believe these awards make an invaluable contribution to the New Zealand project management profession. They help to highlight the great work project managers do each day and are an incentive for everyone to lift their game.
We would like to extend our congratulations to all of the winners!
