Manage India reader Mr. Amit Toshniwal, PMP, wins a free delegate pass to PMI India National Conference 2011 for his excellent feedback and suggestions for the e-newsletter.

Dear Practitioners,

We’re just a few days away from the third PMI India National Conference on Project Management and the excitement in the community is palpable. The huge success of the conference in the past two years has set delegate expectations high. A lot of effort has gone in this time to ensure we raise the bar even further in terms of the content and overall delegate experience during the conference. I’m delighted to see that our efforts have paid off.

Bangalore, the host for this year’s conference, is truly the home for project management in India. India’s technology capital with its highly successful home-grown companies and multinationals has led the adoption of project management in India. The early project management success stories of these companies have inspired others, thereby helping to build the momentum that we are witnessing today. We are happy to bring the conference to Bangalore and offer our growing community in India an opportunity to learn, grow, share, and network in this great city across three power-packed days.

What is unique about the conference this year is the coming together of two events, the PMI India National Conference and PMI Bangalore Chapter’s annual conference. The theme for this year’s national conference, Architecting Project Management for Nation Building, is a subject that appeals to most of us, both as professionals and citizens. The bonus in this year’s conference is the additional track on, “Project Management in e-Governance.” If our country has to achieve the steep growth curve envisioned in the current Five-Year Plan, our investment into projects has to bear better returns.

Our stellar lineup of speakers for the conference and the e-governance track will add depth to the discussions on how project management can lead the country on this growth path. Given the theme of the conference, you will agree that there is none better than former President of India Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam to kick off the event and set the tone for the next two days’ deliberations.

The cover feature of this issue of Manage India explores the level of adoption of project management in the country in both public and private sector projects and how we can harness the power of project management to improve project success rates. We have drawn from the insights of experts from different fields to throw light on the subject.

I hope to see you at the conference. I’m certain the discussions, knowledge-sharing, and networking that the conference offers will live up to your expectations and help you grow in the profession.

Best regards,

Raj Kalady
Managing Director, PMI India
