APM Project Management Awards 2021
The finalists have been announced, the venue has been chosen and the date is in the diary – the APM Project Management Awards are back – and in person – on the 15th November 2021.
The APM awards are the most prestigious award ceremony in the industry, and have now been running for over 20 years. The APMs feature 16 different categories, all crafted to recognise the best individuals, projects and programmes in the industry today.
Changes are afoot for this year’s ceremony, in order to match the emerging trends in the industry over the past 12 months. For the first time, the ‘Contribution to Project Management’ award will include three new categories:
- Contribution to Project Management: SME
This category’s finalists are independent project management firm 3pm, Delt Shared Services, who provide IT services to the south west of England, consultancy firm P2 Consulting and management consultancy i3works.
3pm are a relatively small business in headcount, but they are committed to delivering innovation to the project management sector by delivering a positive and lasting legacy through excellence.
Delt Shared Services Ltd. work predominantly with their two shareholder groups: Plymouth City Council and Devon Clinical Commissioning Group, ensuring that their work has regional impact in the south west of England.
i3works is an SME consultancy that prioritises potential, across all demographics, and nurtures their workforce into highly-qualified and valued consultants.
P2 are a consultancy that delivers on its clients most challenging projects whilst also providing the expertise to radically transform their own project management capability. What’s more, they are a firm believer in the fluidity of project management, and one that tailors itself around the client’s specific requirements.
- Contribution to Project Management: Company/Consultancy
In the company or consultancy category, construction and infrastructure group Balfour Beatty are joined by consultants PA Consulting and Turner & Townsend.
Balfour Beatty have delivered over 110 years’ experience in the engineering and construction industries, providing highly complex infrastructure. Project management is insidious and always at the heart of what they do, with over 1300 members in their PM leadership group. Having won the ‘Contribution to the Profession’ award last year, PA Consulting are being recognised again for their P3M specialisms. Turner & Townsend are an independent consultancy firm who are active in the Real Estate, Infrastructure and Natural Resources sectors, and have an impressive 111 offices in 45 countries.
- Contribution to Project Management: Not-for-Profit
Essex County Council – and more specifically the Transformation Delivery and Support (TDS) department have been nominated in this category for their effective delivery of change to a population of 1.4 million people within their authority. Elsewhere in this category, the NHS ‘Project Futures Programme’ was also nominated as the professional brand of the NHS project community, enabling the service to deliver sustainable and ever-evolving change for the benefits of patients and communities.
The APM is the industry’s only chartered body, and as such are well placed to judge all of this year’s finalists against the following criteria:
By displaying positive and tangible progression within the project management profession, and by delivering excellence in project management through best practice measures and thought leadership.
