The IPMA Award Assessors are the heart of the IPMA Award assessment process. They represent IPMA externally and are expected to be good ambassadors for IPMA in general and for the IPMA Global Project Excellence Award and project excellence in particular. The IPMA Award Assessors are also the main point of contact with the IPMA Award Applicant and have a key responsibility to establish good relationships with each Applicant enabling a continuation and deepening of the relationship with IPMA at all levels (personal, organisational, IPMA Project Excellence Award, IPMA certification etc.).
The main goal of the IPMA Award Assessors is to professionally assess projects submitted for the IPMA Project Excellence Awards.
Requirements for IPMA Award Assessors
An IPMA Award Assessor’s primary role is to professionally assess projects submitted for the IPMA Project Excellence Award. To do so, an assessor must:
Candidates who do not meet these criteria will not be allowed to participate in an IPMA Award Assessment Team.
Active Assessors: Every year participation in the assessment process (also as a Judge for Small-/Medium-Sized projects) will permit the Assessor to qualify as Assessor by participating in an update training (or webinar) every 5th year only.
Breaks in assessments: Even a single one-year break in the participation in an assessment team requires the assessor to participate in the training (webinar) in order to be included in the potential assessors pool again. If an assessor is non-active for more than one year, he/she has to participate in a three-day training.
Changes: Any changes in the IPMA Project Excellence Model or the scoring process requires Assessors to participate in a three-day training.
Nomination of PE Award Assessors
The IPMA Awards Coordinator, IPMA Vice President and IPMA Awards PMO yearly compose the Assessment Teams for each Award application from the pool of qualified assessors. They do this by taking into account various selection criteria ensuring a well-balanced mix of qualified people with different and relevant backgrounds and experiences, representing various countries. Before announcing the assessment teams, the Awards PMO contacts the nominated Assessors and ask them to confirm that they are available for the whole duration of the Assessment process. The Award Assessors then have to inform the Awards PMO that the local IPMA Member Association – of which they are a member – supports their nomination. The number of qualified assessors that can be appointed to an assessment team depends on the number of award applications.
