The NZ Project Management Awards, run by the Project Management Institute of New Zealand (PMINZ), are coming into their tenth year in 2018. The Project Management Office (PMO) of the year award has been sponsored by Project Plus ever since it was founded six years ago. This award recognises excellence by a Project, Programme or Portfolio Management Office in achieving higher project management success and adding value to their organisation, with a clear and beneficial impact on business results.
The 2017 winner of the Project Plus PMO of the year award was Foodstuffs North Island, which was presented at the PMINZ Annual Conference held in Christchurch. This year the conference will be held in Auckland. The other awards that PMINZ host are Project Manager of the Year, Emerging Project Manager of the Year, Project of the Year, Public Sector Project of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, and the Research Achievement Award.
These awards aim to celebrate the outstanding achievements of project management organisations throughout New Zealand, while also increasing recognition for the project management profession itself.
