Project success celebrated at Association for Project Management Awards 2021
A night of celebration saw project organisations, individuals and projects from many diverse sectors recognised for their achievements at the APM Project Management Awards 2021.
The awards, sponsored by RPC UK Ltd, took place at a glittering ceremony in London and recognised the very best within the project profession, from aspiring young project managers to complex and transformational projects and programmes.
Spanning 16 categories, the awards range from Innovation in Project Management to Contribution to Project Management: Small to Medium Enterprise and Programme of the Year.
The Contribution to Project Management: Small to Medium Enterprise (SME), sponsored by Defence Equipment & Support, was won by P2 Consulting, a business change and transformation consultancy. APM judges were looking for an SME organisation that stood out in two ways: the first was a commitment to positive and meaningful progression of its project professionals, including training and development and methods for sharing knowledge and best practice. The second was excellence in project management, demonstrated by a measurable impact on projects and programmes that have been managed and delivered by the organisation.
P2 Consulting won the award for its ‘T-Shaped Consultant’ model, its dedication to building a legacy of project management and best practice at its client organisations and approach to developing methodologies for project management and ‘accelerants’ for project delivery.
Phil Rolfe, CEO, P2 Consulting said: “We are over the moon to be awarded this accolade. P2 works extremely hard to leave a lasting legacy of great project management practice at every client and this award is testament to the hard work, dedication and rigour of our team. For us, success is about helping our consultants be the best project management professionals they can be, developing the best methodologies for projects and, ultimately, leaving our clients more capable project management organisations than they were when we started working with them. For this, APM recognised our contribution to the project management industry. We are very proud of our team.”

I would like to congratulate all of this year’s award winners and finalists for their fantastic achievement, they are a true reflection on the growing talent and opportunity within the profession.”
