Project team receives Asia Pacific Product Development Award
On Saturday night I received an SMS from an excited Peter Riches in Hong Kong. Peter advised the Asia Pacific Federation of Project Management (APFPM) had awarded Telstra their Product Development award. This was for the significant role the Telstra Corporate Project, Network Construction team played in project managing the Australian Rail Track Corporation’s National Train Communication System project.
This project has been previously awarded at a state-level and nationally by the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) and was then automatically submitted by the AIPM into the APFPM awards.
Peter, Telstra’s ARTC NTCS Project Manager for the 6-year life of the project, told me after the event how elated he was and how recognition at this level was fantastic for the whole project team involved.
This level of industry recognition certainly shows we have the commitment, capability and skills to take on challenging, long term projects that involve collaboration and innovation.
Everyone stepped up for this one and here we now have the results.
