Project Management Championship 2022

Organised by Young Crew and GPM - and with the dedicated support of csi - the National Final of the Project Management Championships (PMC) 2022 was held on 4 June 2022.

Four teams from different universities were set a case study to solve.
But not just any case study - they were asked to solve the problem:
"Develop a mobility concept for the decarbonisation of city centres and within a 50-km radius"

The next generation of project managers and consultants were thus able to demonstrate what they are made of. They also had to work on an issue that illustrates how one of the great challenges of the next generations can be tackled - the sustainable development of mobility from an urban and rural perspective.

"Developing a concept that considers both urban and rural areas generates an authentic solution. At csi, we have been dealing with sustainability, lightweight construction and last-mile delivery concepts for some time, so it was particularly exciting for us to see what solutions the young people would come up with," explains Andreas Lübeck, Head of Consulting Neckarsulm/Ingolstadt/Weissach at csi.

Andreas supervised the challenge and was one of the three members of the PMC judging panel alongside Gisela Heumann (Managing Director CreArte KG) and Patrick Schmeisser (Young Crew extended board member).

The participating teams from the universities of Münster, Pforzheim, Oldenburg and Duisburg had already qualified in the first round and were now competing against each other nationally at the PMC.
The judging panel then evaluated the creative and diverse ideas and approaches of the teams and elected Chantal Schmid, Max Wedding and Andre Widmann as the national winners.

It was then clear who would go to Berlin, as winner of the PMC, for the international final of the International Project Management Association (IPMA) on 10 to 12 June. 13 teams from 13 different nations competed against each other in Berlin to challenge each other on a level playing field. In the end, the Spanish team scooped the top prize in this competition.

The experience and contacts gained were priceless for all participants, the next generation of project managers and consultants, and represented a lasting building block for their future development.
