Asia-Pacific Project Controls Innovation of the Year

What the judges are looking for

Judges are looking to recognise the use of innovation within Project Controls for projects (encompassing projects, programmes or portfolios) and see how its wider use within organisations and society can contribute to successful change.

Innovation could include a method employed, the overall novelty of the project or the transformative outcome in creating more professionalism by, for example, gaining inclusion into the various BoK’s (Body of Knowledge) that exist and therefore be available to be part of the daily practice of Project Control professionals wherever they are.

Each of the criteria is scored between 0 (no evidence at all) and 10 (perfect evidence) with each section being weighted accordingly (see %).
