TASS Information Agency participated in the competition for the first time and took the third place in nomination “Project management systems in state corporations, companies with state participation and development institutions.” Head of the Project Management Department at TASS Anton Niskin said: “The project management system at TASS is unique for the Russian media market.”
“It covers the agency’s all directions,” he continued. “They are: new information products, strategic development, technical modernization, information technologies, development of business processes and management of the country’s major state information agency.”
“The global experience proves project management cannot develop successfully without support from a company’s management or without its direct involvement in work of the ‘project office’,” he said. “The received award is a high-level acknowledgement of TASS’ efforts in implementation of project-focused management.”
This year, the Project Olympics competition took place for the third year running. In 2016, the event organizers registered for key nominations only more than 120 applications from all over the country, and 33 companies reached the final contest. In late October, the jury announced the winners.
The competition’s objective is to support the state sector’s organizations, which implement actively effective instruments of project management. The event analyzes and promotes best national practices in project management and offers conditions for bigger effectiveness of state authorities and state-run organizations by use of project management approaches and program-focused management.
