The Organizing Committee of the Proyektniy Olimp contest completed the selection of contestants qualified for the final round. The Analytical Center held a round table to discuss preliminary results. “At the round table, experts of the Analytical Center congratulated the assessors who successfully passed PM Standard certification. Let me remind you that the Analytical Center is a regional certifying center for this standard,” said Mr. Ilya Vinokurov, Head of the Department for Project Management in the Public Sector.
Totally, 118 applications and 79 reports were submitted to the contest, out of which 58 applications and 42 reports were in the Organization Management Systems nomination, 37 applications and 20 reports in Project Office Organizations and Activities, and 23 applications and 17 reports in Integrated Project Management Systems.
“During the final round, the assessors will visit the contestants participating in the final round. The visits, usually one or two days per contestant, may be personal or, as an exception, in form of a video conference (Skype, Webinar, etc.). During the visit, through interviews and document analysis the assessors will collect additional information about the item to be assessed and described in the report. Based on the collected information, the assessors will adjust their assessments in the Assessor’s Tool,” explained Margarita Kulina, Analytical Center expert.
Similarly to the qualifying round, the assessors will compare the assigned scores. If the scores differ by more than 30%, the assessment by this criterion will be renegotiated.
The final round of the Project Olympus contest will last until October 10, 2016.
