Dear Practitioners,

I’m delighted to present to you a special issue of Manage India with detailed coverage of the PMI India Project Management Conference 2010. The three-day conference in Mumbai on 19-21 November was a grand success that was attended by over 700 delegates from India and abroad. We had close to 40 speakers, a CXO panel discussion, four

parallel tracks with technical paper presentations, and an award presentation ceremony for PMI India project awards.


The most splendid aspect of the mega event has been the passion and dedication displayed by our volunteers. The credit for the success of the PMI India Project Management Conference 2010 goes largely to our volunteers and PMI chapters who put the entire event together. Volunteering is close to our heart, and organizing an event of this scale with such finesse shows the level of volunteering that is present in the project management community in India. My heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers for this stupendous exercise.


I’d like to congratulate all the award winners. I hope to see even more nominations for the conference in 2011.


The presence of our out-going CEO Gregory Balestrero during the conference encouraged us greatly. He has been a source of inspiration to many of us, and it was an honor and privilege to have hosted him in India.


The positive feedback that I have received on the conference from so many delegates has been highly encouraging. The wide variety of topics that the conference covered through keynote addresses and technical paper presentations made it a fulfilling experience for delegates. We witnessed the organized adrenaline rush during the unique ‘drum circle’ at the inaugural session. The large audience turned into a percussionists’ band for the evening, creating waves and ripples with drum beats!


I thank all the speakers, sponsors, chapter presidents, particularly conference co-hosts Mumbai and Pune-Deccan Chapters, the organizing committee and PMI India staff for the great show.


The 2011 PMI India conference will be held in Bangalore and I invite you to check our website, pmi.org.in, for more details.


Wishing you and your family Merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year!

Best Regards,

Raj Kalady
Managing Director, PMI India
