Following in the footsteps of UNICEF
In winning the Innovative Idea in Project Management Award, Project Half Double follows in the footsteps of 2017 winner, UNICEF. Among 1,000 applicants from 40 different countries Project Half Double was awarded the most innovative idea within project management in 2018.
“It’s our hope that the award will spread the word about Half Double globally and help put focus on the value of impact, flow and leadership – and ultimately reverse the frighteningly low success rate of projects in all organisations,” says Niels Ahrengot from Implement Consulting Group – one of the organisations behind the concept.
A co-created methodology
One of the methodology’s founding mothers, Christina Sejr Pedersen, travelled to Dubai to participate in the award ceremony and be inspired by the many international participants.
But the journey started three years ago, when The Danish Industry Foundation and Implement Consulting Group invited high caliber project managers, project directors and portfolio managers to share their experiences executing projects and co-create a new methodology. Based on three core elements – impact, flow and leadership – the Half Double methodology has now more than 1,800 followers, 250 certified practitioners and over 50 projects completed successfully.
