PM Excellence Awards application forms & guidelines
The core purpose of the PMI Jamaica Chapter is “to advance the practice, science, and profession of project, program, and portfolio management throughout Jamaica.” As part of our regular activities, the Chapter holds an annual competition to identify excellence in project management. We recognize and celebrate the winners in an Annual Awards Ceremony. Winners over the last decade have included some of the most illustrious organizations in Jamaica including the Fujitsu-ICL, the Seprod Group of Companies, JN Group, Digicel, NCB, Neustone, and the Mona School of Business and Management.
Globally and nationally, more and more organizations are recognizing the immense value of formalizing their management of projects. We are now witnessing what has become known as the projectification of organizations, with an amazing amount of interest in managing by projects, programs, and portfolios.
As the official advocate for the profession throughout Jamaica, the PMI Jamaica Chapter wishes to recognize excellence in project management at the level of the individual practitioner as well as organizations, both public and private sector. We believe that the identification and celebration of local models by peers will foster even greater ambitions by present and aspiring project managers, and drive even higher achievements by our organizations. We wish to encourage broad participation recognizing simultaneously the maturity demonstrated by our past winners and veteran leaders of project management offices, as well as the promise of small and young firms and junior professionals in a wide range of industries. We also recognize the rising popularity of agile methodologies, and the existence of other approaches to management of projects and programs in the UK and Europe, Australia, Japan, and elsewhere. This diversity benefits our practice, our profession, and our science.
- The awards are in four categories. They are:
- Exceptional Project Manager of the Year Award
- Project of the Year Award
- Project Management for Social Good Award
- Project Management Organization of the Year Award
The instructions for applying for each of these follows. There are separate application forms for each Award. Given that the purpose of these awards is to inspire others by sharing your stories of excellence, we will be publishing to the community, via our website and other marketing channels, many of the materials you send to us. Please bear this in mind as you develop your submissions.
The deadline for all applications and submissions is 4:00pm, November 25, 2019.
