London, 19 November 2019 – The winners of the annual Association for Project Management (APM) Awards have been announced at the prestigious awards ceremony at Old Billingsgate, London on Monday 18 November.

The renowned APM Project Management Awards, sponsored by RPC UK Ltd, recognise the very best individuals, projects and programmes the profession has to offer, from aspiring young project managers to complex and transformational projects and programmes, both in the UK and internationally. This year saw a record number of entries submitted to the Awards, reflecting the growing project profession.

The Overall Project of the Year Award went to North Cumbria University Hospitals Trust & Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, for its new and innovative maternity information system – BadgerNet electronic personal health records (ePHR). The new system has replaced outdated processes at the Trust. New electrical records which means that women registering their pregnancy in Cumbria are now some of the first in the country to have access to electronic maternity notes – all via an app on which they can track their pregnancy journey.

Sandra Jowers, Head of Learning Hub, Proteus said: “It’s absolutely amazing to win this award not only for all the work we have done for our clients and for getting us where we are today but what it does for the project management industry as a whole… It means the world for the team, our hard work, our clients and me personally. It’s a huge success for the last year.”

Innovation within the project management industry was celebrated with APM’s new Innovation in Projects Award won by Proteus, the leading provider in projects and programmes, for the Proteus Learning Hub. The Learning Hub provides a suite of approaches that drives a change in capability and behaviours to help organisations and their colleagues to deliver projects and programmes. The Learning Hub has enabled Proteus’s clients including a large Financial Service company to transform their change expertise, by utilising the Learning Hub to deliver rapid, sustainable results.

Debbie Dore, chief executive of APM said: “This year we wanted to recognise excellence in innovation at our awards ceremony. Project management is all about breaking new ground and doing things that haven’t been done before, which places innovation at the heart of what we do.

I would like to congratulate the winners and finalists from each of the categories for their incredible achievements.”

Heathrow Airport was presented with the Technology of the Year Award for its Airport Operations Plan (AOP), and Demand Capacity and Balancing (DCB) tool – a paradigm shift in the way flight operations are handled. Heathrow’s ambition is to provide the “Best Airport Service in the World”. To deliver this under severe capacity constraints, it is combining data science, design thinking and business process re-design with digital technologies to unite the physical and virtual aspects of its services. Heathrow partnered with EUROCONTROL, NATS and its technology partners to implement the next generation of airport planning and operations. The result is the Airport Operations Plan (AOP), underpinned by a cloud-based Demand Capacity and Balancing (DCB) tool.
