Minneapolis, MN (October 25th, 2004)
RMC Project Management, the innovator in project management training and development since 1991, has won the 2004 PMI® Professional Development Product of the Year Award in the Corporate / Government / Association category for its SIRK-Kit Risk Analysis Kit. The official announcement was made on October 23rd at an awards ceremony preceding this year's North American PMI® Global Congress in Anaheim, California.
Rita Mulcahy, founder of RMC and creator of the SIRK-Kit, believes the award is a testament to her company's sharp focus on one common goal—to help project managers learn. "My company has worked hard to create products with significantly more content and value than other products in the marketplace," stated Mulcahy. "This award reinforces the fact that our efforts in this area have been successful."
In addition to the best-selling book Risk Management: Tricks of the Trade® for Project Managers, the SIRK-Kit Risk Analysis Kit from RMC includes a 6' x 6' Risk Chart used to sort and qualify risks, as well as ten (10) packages of Risk Notes, which are used to record risks and the relevant information about each. This unique look at risk analysis—as a fun activity rather than a complex and painstaking exercise—is the primary reason Mulcahy believes the SIRK-Kit was given the award. "People are afraid that risk management is too complex, so they simply don't do it—which leads to cost overruns, wasted effort and unhappy customers," noted Mulcahy. "We designed the SIRK-Kit with this in mind, hoping to make risk management easy and fun so it actually gets done on projects more often."
This award caps a busy October for RMC, which was also recognized earlier in the week as a winner of the Growth 50 Award—an annual award given by The Business Journal to the fastest-growing private companies in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area.
