Kaleen, Australia (PressExposure) July 22, 2011 -- Transformed has been recognised among Australia's most progressive organisations, winning the Australian Business Award for Project Management in the 2011 Awards.
The Australian Business Awards challenges the full spectrum of private, public and non-profit sector organisations in Australia through its comprehensive business and product award categories.
Now in its sixth year, the Australian Business Awards program recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business excellence, product excellence, corporate responsibility, sustainability and commercial success in their respective industries. A total of 103 recipients were honoured from the 928 organisations that participated in the 2011 Awards.
The Australian Business Award for Project Management recognises organisations that demonstrate excellence in project management. Commenting on the win, Michael Young, Managing Director said:
"Transformed has been passionate about our role in the developing individual and organizational capability in project, program and portfolio management. Working with key industry bodies, we proudly play an active role leading and shaping the project management industry. It is an honor to be commended for our professional contributions to the industry as a whole by the Australian Business Awards"
As an AIPM Endorsed Course Provider and AIPM sponsor, Transformed's team of award-winning experts deliver a range of project management qualifications, certifications and short courses that combine best-practice theory as well as real world practical skills.
Transformed Managing Director, Michael Young, has been instrumental in developing key industry standards including developing the world's first competency standard for project portfolio managers on a voluntary basis on behalf of the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM). It is intended that this Standard will be used to improve project portfolio management capability in organisations, which in turn promotes efficient resource use and more profitable project outcomes.
Tara Johnston, Program Director of the Australian Business Awards, said the standard of entries for 2011 was a testament to the strength and resilience of the Australian economy.
"Australian businesses continue to adapt business processes, invest in product development and develop dynamic e-business initiatives that increase productivity and quality standards for all. The Australian Business Awards provide a welcome opportunity for organisations committed to business and product excellence to receive recognition throughout their respective industries for driving positive business outcomes," said Johnston.
"We are proud that the Awards continue to promote the key values in the workplace which foster a vibrant organisational culture and encourage enterprise, product innovation, service excellence, marketing excellence, environmental sustainability and community contribution. We would like to congratulate all the 2011 winners for achieving exceptional results within the respective award categories."
Business award entries are separated by industry classification per award category and evaluated in accordance with the award criteria across seven main areas, including leadership and strategy, impact on industry, adaptability and sustainability, human resource management, customer relationship management, process management and evidence of success.
