Each year, the Project Management Institute (PMI) recognizes the “Most Influential Projects” by industry, region and overall. These projects showcase “compelling efforts across industries and around the world that achieved a significant milestone,” said PMI President & CEO Sunil Prashara.1
This year, the U.S. 2020 Census was highlighted as #6 in the Top 10 “Most Influential Projects” list across government. T-Rex Solutions is proud to be a part of the team that helped make the 2020 Census a success. As the Technical Integrator, T-Rex was responsible for modernizing and protecting U.S. Census Bureau’s IT Infrastructure, systems, applications and data to effectively support its mission even amidst a global pandemic.
“We are proud to support the U.S. Census Bureau in making the first ever online census a success. We were able to ensure the online response system was reliable, effective, and easy to use while prioritizing the health and safety of Americans during the pandemic,” says T-Rex CEO Seth Moore.
In selecting this group of projects, the project management community — including experts, volunteers, academics, and industry leaders around the world — first provided their recommendations for consideration. This year’s list specifically highlights projects in which project professionals were able to use “ingenious ways to keep initiatives moving forward in the face of unexpected obstacles associated with the global pandemic.”
Through the thousands of recommendations made, a “special PMI thought leadership team” further culled down the list of projects. The final list “represents PMI’s vision of how project work and the change makers behind them represent the creative spirit shaping how the world collectively reimagines a new future, makes ideas and dreams reality, and as a result changed the world.”2
“These projects should give all of us cause for optimism in these tough times. Each team had to make hard decisions, often going against the grain of tradition – all for the betterment of society,” states Prashara.3
