Dear Practitioners,

I’m delighted to announce that the sixth PMI India National Conference will be held on 11-13 September at the stateof-the-art Hyderabad International Convention Centre. This will be our second such conference in Hyderabad, the city with its unique blend of the old and the contemporary. The theme for this year’s conference is “Project Management – the Mantra for Sustainable Growth”. It will give us an opportunity to discuss the criticality of project management to bring predictability in uncertain times. I encourage you to visit the conference site for more details.

We are inviting nominations for the PMI India Awards Program that culminates at the National Conference. The last date for submitting nominations is 7 April. The new website for the awards program has made the process of filing award applications more user-friendly and the selection process more streamlined.

In this issue of Manage India, we are featuring the polio eradication initiative that has been a matter of pride for India. To eradicate the polio virus has indeed been a daunting task considering that the country has a huge population, a high birth rate, diverse physical, social, and cultural barriers, and poor sanitation. Eradication could not have been possible without the efficient use of project management. I hope you enjoy reading this issue.

Warm regards,

Raj Kalady
Managing Director, PMI India
