Sarvak Azar Engineering and Development Co. (SAED)
IPMA PE Mega-Sized project 2021 Gold Winner
The process of participation in the International Project Management Award was a journey for us teemed with uniquely-enriching experiences on the never-ending path of excellence. On this path and especially on assessment days, not only we were blessed with the opportunity of getting familiar with some of the world-class professionals, but also we were provided with the chance to fathom out a significant part of our strengths and areas of improvement from the vantage point of the international assessors that would be like the North Star for our futuristic strides on the ascending route of organizational maturity. For the first time in the history of Iranian companies, we managed to win a gold medal in the most challenging category of the IPMA competition whereby we showed that the spirit of excellence had become an intrinsic element of the professional character of all members of SAED. Moreover, we learned that the path to excellence was an endless road. We are very grateful to IPMA for providing us with this opportunity. We are firmly determined to continue interaction with this very professional entity in order to gain new experiences and knowledge from it and share unique experiences gained from the implementation of Iranian projects with it.
