The following is a reprint of a news release issued by PMI
Calgary, Alberta (May 13, 2009) -- Although you don't have to dig too deep to find recent news of business projects that have failed, last night the spotlight was reversed as the Project Management Institute recognized the region's top projects and project managers at its 2009 Awards Gala.
"Behind every great project is a great project management team and our gala awards program recognizes the best and brightest in our industry," said Neil Sanderson, president, Project Management Institute, Southern Alberta Chapter. "There are new examples everyday of projects spiraling out of control because of inadequate planning which makes honouring this year's award recipients even that much more special," he said.
