The Wideman Education Foundation (WEF) congratulates the e-Bike Revolution team on winning the 2015 Wideman Prize for Project Management Excellence!
The e-Bike Revolution team from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver campus demonstrated to the panel of nine judges their skill and leadership in planning and executing their project to the highest of standards. Working as a team, e-Bike Revolution partnered with OHM Cycles, an e-bike manufacturer based in Abbotsford, to hold a test drive event for the UBC community that had over 120 participants trying an e-bike – double the team’s original target.
The Wideman Prize is an annual competition designed to help young people develop the leadership and organizational skills needed to succeed in the modern work place. Using projects as a vehicle for learning, the competition requires teams of students to select, initiate, plan and then execute a real life project as part of their studies. This year, a total of 10 teams from Langara, SFU and UBC gathered to participate in the annual Wideman Prize Competition.
The WEF Competition Prize consists of cash, being named WEF’s Project of the Year and acknowledgement by the West Coast BC Chapter of the Project Management Institute.
We look forward to organizing the Wideman Prize Competition again in 2016!
