The Kerzner Award for Project Management Excellence- Any individual who has significant project/program/portfolio management responsibility within their company and who has shown leadership in advancing the project management profession is eligible for this award. Note this is not a one project or one year award. It is awarded for continuously exemplifying the characteristics of a strong, effective project manager throughout their career. This person would have shown an ongoing commitment to the standards, goals and practices of project management.

The nominee does not need to be a member of PMI. However, the project management work leading to their nomination must be done by, or for, a Northeastern Ohio company or organization. This may be a for-profit or non-profit organization. 

The Kerzner Award for Project of the Year– Any project completed in Northeast Ohio during the 2014 calendar year. Whereas the Kerzner Award for Project Management Excellence is based on the individual’s contribution to project management, the Kerzner Award for Project of the Year is based on the Northeast Ohio project of most significance and may be presented to one individual or a group of individuals.

The project does not need to be affiliated to anyone who is a PMI member, nor managed by a PMP. If the winning project is deemed to be qualified for the PMI project of the year and competitive at that level, it may be submitted to the PMI nomination process by the chapter. The individual(s) receiving the Project of the Year award will be asked to present their project at a subsequent spring chapter meeting.
