Recognizing Project Management Achievements – Get your nominations in for the 2013 PMI Awards
Project management is a skilled profession that is advancing year on year. With the advent of sophisticated online tools to support all aspects of project management, like, Basecamp, Central Desktop and AtTask, to name just a few, the project management world has much to offer in terms of innovative practices.
The Project Management Institute (PMI), through its annual awards, recognizes excellence within the different areas of the project management industry and is an opportunity for professionals to be credited for their outstanding skills, innovation and hard work in this challenging and competitive arena.
The headline award is the highly valued PMI Project Manager of the Year and one which any project manager would be extremely proud to have on their shelf! Other awards include the PMI Distinguished Project Award and the PMI Eric Jenett Project Management Excellence Award.
Individuals can nominate others or, indeed, apply themselves for the 2013 PMI awards now. The call for nominations for this year’s awards went out on 1st Nov, 2012 and the deadline for receipt of submissions is 1st April.
