I was in San Francisco recently to receive an award on behalf of the Project team from the Project Management Institute College Of Scheduling (PMICOS), the award presentation was happening in the context of the PMICOS Conference taking place this week.
It’s great that Microsoft Project got recognized as having “significantly contributed to the project management scheduling profession” among a crowd who until recently was more inclined to lean towards traditional players such as Primavera, Artemis, Planview and the likes. In fact, Microsoft was the only PPM software vendor to be recognized this year, the other nominees being practitioners of the profession. It was also great to see Microsoft receive the highest rating possible in the recently released Gartner Project and Portfolio Applications MarketScope.
On behalf of the Project Team, we are very grateful for the recognition, just another small indication of the impact Project and its millions of users have in the project management industry and the continued growth and momentum we’ve seen in recent years.
Here’s a picture of the actual award.
