Dear Project Management Practitioners,
Glad to be writing to you again. June was a fruitful month, which opened before us new vistas that helped explore different facets of the project management domain. On June 23, we were privileged to have the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, under the Union Government, organize a conference on project management.
The conference discussed in detail the importance of project management, the need for trained project managers and the importance of certification for project managers. The role for the Project Management Institute (PMI) was well defined, with the conference having a speaker slot.
The conference was well attended, with delegates from across a wide spectrum that included the public sector, academia, associations, and the Quality Council of India in attendance. A set of recommendations was made and presented to the government, post-conference.
At the event, PMI India also released its second research report, titled ‘PM practices in India.’ The report was well received.
Let me also note that the Bangalore conference which went off well had Intel partnering PMI India. In attendance were heads of Project Management Offices (PMOs).
On July 9, Bangalore also played host to the second PMI Advisory Board meeting. The Board guides PMI on promoting project management in academia. The meeting deliberated on the framework for writing case studies and research papers in PM. The other issue discussed was recognizing academicians and developing a curriculum for PM in industry.
Allow me to take this opportunity to remind you of the Project Management Conference, a three-day professional development event to be hosted by PMI in Mumbai from 19 to 21 November. This conference would provide an opportunity to thousands of professionals across all industries to exchange ideas on today’s project challenges and emerging trends. Please do not forget to send in your technical papers. Click here

Managing Director, PMI India
