The VZPM congratulates armasuisse on this great success.
At the final of the IPMA Global Project Excellence Award 2021 - which took place on 22 September 2021 in St. Petersburg - armasuisse achieved third place in the category large projects. The award is given to teams that can demonstrate special achievements in project management. Projects selected for the final are characterised by strong leadership, clear goal orientation and solid processes. In addition, this confirms that armasuisse regularly scrutinises the processes within the project and adjusts them if necessary. The participation in the competition and the associated assessment by external experts also serves as a basis for the continuous improvement of the management activities and the processes in the further course of the project. Apart from armasuisse, the projects Sber Antifraud 2.0 of Sberbank of Russia (gold) and Ecoquartier Hacene Malik of Sarl Achim Immobilier from Algeria (silver) qualified for the final. The members of this year's jury came from China, Germany, Poland and Switzerland.
armasuisse handles the procurement of military equipment on the basis of projects and endeavours to apply continuous learning and development processes. This includes measuring itself against the market and being able to improve itself using benchmarking, such as by means of an independent assessment by experienced assessors as part of the IPMA competition. By honouring projects, the IPMA recognises and acknowledges excellence in project management. The «New Fighter Aircraft» project’s nomination as a finalist shows that armasuisse is on the right track. Learn more about the project in the video (in German).
