The finalists for the APM Project Management Awards 2018 were announced yesterday so congratulations to all of the finalists.

Wellingtone are proud Sponsors of the APM ‘PMO of the Year’ Award so we would like to offer a very special congratulations to the finalists of this category.

“Now in its second year, it really is great to see the PMO of the Year Award growing stronger, mirroring our industry going from strength to strength. All the finalists put an enormous amount of effort into their submissions and I look forward to seeing who comes out on top in 2018”
APM Awards Judge

This award celebrates the commitment of Portfolio, Programme and Project Management Offices (PMOs) to developing not only  their organisation across all facets of project management but also their emerging industry through innovative and thoughtful ways of working.

The PMO of the Year award is designed for those PMOs that want to stand out as a beacon of driving project success and project management maturity in the way that they enable their organisations to deliver successful and sustainable change, develop project community and challenge themselves to become trusted business partners.

The APM judges are looking for the ways in which PMOs operate as a key and trusted business partner. In particular they are interested in how the PMO answers the value question through their structure, strategy, and culture. How they develop and continually improve best practice and how they provide assurance to the leadership. How the PMO creates community, and how they deal with the changeable nature of the PMO role.

It would also be of interest to understand if the PMO itself has had to change to accommodate the business needs, how it has created an environment where it can adapt whilst maintaining sponsorship at the highest levels.

The award ceremony takes place on Monday 26 November at Old Billingsgate, London. We  look forward to celebrating with everyone on the night.
