In 2018 PMSA introduced the PMSA PMO of the Year Awards Programme for the first time. This is an exciting step that celebrates the great work being done within these structures in a range of industries in South Africa.

With the nomination phase of the competition now closed, we have identified the finalists, the leaders of which are now preparing their full submissions, for judging in October. With no manipulation on our part, the range of finalists has ended up representative of the main industries in which project management is growing. The winner will be announced at the PMSA National Biennial Conference, taking place from 14 to 16 November at the Wanderers Club in Johannesburg.

Considering the various purposes that the PMO serves, and the different structures it comprises, there is a lot of value to be gained from glimpses into those that embody good practice and display measurable value for their organisations. These characteristics tie in well with the PMSA National Conference theme of ‘Strength in Diversity’. The conference programme features several sessions that explore what cohesive, strategic PMOs achieve. Aside from just being an opportunity to congratulate the winning South African PMO, delegates will also hear what earned them the win, and be able to attend a session where adjudicators of the local and global legs share the numerous good practices observed around the world.

The diversity theme extends to the ways that project managers and project teams can enhance their competencies and deploy new methods and technologies to improve their delivery of projects and increase their value to their organisations.

The PMSA National Conference programme offers delegates hard hitting keynote addresses, thought provoking plenary sessions and breakaway streams looking at case studies, industry best practices and research papers. The conference also brings together representatives of stakeholders in the professional development of project manager
