Project of the Year Awards 2019

After several years of absence, the PMI Pittsburgh chapter is bringing back Project of the Year. This competition will challenge organizations across the region to create and submit their best entries.  There are three different categories (Professional/Corporate, Emerging Leader/Student, Community/Non-Profit), but in different ways.

If your project is one where both the team and the organization can attribute their overall success to an effective integration of the PMI Methodology, then your project is eligible for this prestigious award. This is your opportunity to publically recognize and honor your team and their accomplishments, your project and your company.

Generally, in corporate and professional environments, the goals of a given project or venture are clear: maximum return on investment, maximum profitability. But the ways in which those goals are achieved vary wildly; it is clear that in the present corporate climate, innovation, perseverance, and going the extra mile are indispensable components of great project management.

Corporate/Professional Project Category

This category requires solid and original projects, the success of which includes, and transcends, their pure profitability. Projects which stand out for their freshness and undeniable positive economic impact, and the skill with which they were guided to completion.

We are seeking projects with a clear impact or return on investment; projects which bring something new and useful to the company as a whole. Projects where innovation stands out. We want to know the stories behind these projects; the challenges faced and how they were overcome.

In the Pittsburgh community, the importance of non-profit involvement is undeniable. Through these institutions, neighborhoods are revitalized and public needs are met. Often it is through its non-for-profits that the inter-generational promise a community makes to its residents can be kept. 

But how a Non-Profit is managed and the skill with which individual projects are accomplished will determine the level of impact of such organizations on the communities they serve.

Community/Non-Profit Project Category  

This category is for projects from the non-profit and/or community grassroots setting which exhibit outstanding returns, in the currency of community benefits. 

Through the precise, resourceful, comprehensive work required to see them through— and through their overarching vision—they foster the public good with deep, often incalculable, returns. 

We are seeking projects with a clear impact or return on investment; projects which bring something new and useful to the community as a whole. Projects where innovation stands out. We want to know the stories behind these projects; the challenges faced and how they were overcome.

Emerging Leader/Student Project of the Year

 Project of the Year Awards 2019

It goes without saying: great project management is a skill developed over time — and great project managers are made, not born. 

But the timespan for this development is anything but uniform. Ultimately, arriving at that state of dynamic effectiveness is what matters most. This often takes hands-on experience to reach, and which requires continual action and traction to regenerate, keeping ideas and practices on the cutting edge. 

There are also times when exceptional capability in project management leadership cannot be contained, bursting into fruition before one’s professional career has really begun.  

Emerging Leaders/Students Project Category

This category is for projects by nominees whose professional flair and managerial capabilities were demonstrated early in their academic and professional careers. Whether linked to institutions of higher education, or benefitting the local community, these pulse with ingenuity and drive. 

We are seeking projects with a clear impact or return on investment; projects which bring something new and useful to the community as a whole. Projects where innovation stands out. We want to know the stories behind these projects; the challenges faced and how they were overcome.
