PMI India Invites Nominations for PMI Awards




Ever since its inception on 25 May, 2002, the Project Management Institute North India Chapter has been actively promoting the discipline of project management across North India. The chapter has been effectively and constantly leveraging its local and global resources and networks to increase awareness about, and recognition and support for the project management profession.


 Some of the major events that have been landmarks in the history of project management in India have been organized by this chapter.


PMiCon2005: Taking up the objectives of India Inc with Project Management Excellence, the event succeeded in bringing together, for the first time in the country, project practitioners, academicians and professionals to share, publish, and leverage experiences and best practices in project management.


PMi Conclave2006: Based on the theme of ‘Realizing Strategic Imperatives Through Project Management’, the event was taken to four major Indian cities. The event was welcomed well and proved to be an extremely enlightening experience for everyone.


The chapter has also been conducting events to bring together experts and professionals from around the globe to contribute and share their experiences with project management professionals in the country.


In 2007 ‘Managing Projects in a Multi Cultural Environment’ saw professionals from Germany, Luxemburg, the USA and China come together and discuss issues faced in managing virtual projects.


Later on, in 2008, events themed on the topic, ‘Negotiating in Project Environment: An Art or a Science?’ as well as ‘Celebrating the Vibrant Colors of Indian Diversity with Project Management Approach’ were organized. All these events helped members to network with senior leaders and project management professionals, and share and enhance their knowledge base.


On 11 May 2009, an event was organized, in association with ESI International. Glenn Brule, director of client solutions for ESI International & and vice president of Chapters IIBA made a presentation on ‘Risk Mitigation in Project Management Using Business Analysis.’


Novel Initiatives
With the recession heat beating down, sponsorship turned tough. The North India Chapter, kicked off a new series of events titled ‘Evening with Project Management Veterans in India’ in association with various companies at their premises. The idea was a success, and many companies showed interest in participating. The event at Tech Mahindra, Noida, on the theme ‘Portfolio Management,’ was the first in the series, and was followed by one at Headstrong, Noida, on the theme ‘Financial Management.’ Next, the chapter organized an event in association with Dell Perot Systems on ‘Women in Project Management’ and with CSC India on the theme ‘Resource Management.’


Leading from the Front
The chapter elected 10 Operations Board members at the start of 2010. Two key milestones were achieved during the year, by collaborating with two chapters outside India. A partnership agreement was signed with the Peru Chapter, and an MoU inked with PMI WDC, aimed at working closely to build a healthy and a structured PMI community across these regions.
