Letters from the Organizers
The recently concluded PMI India Regional Conference, hosted by PMI Pune-Deccan India Chapter and co-hosted by PMI Mumbai India Chapter, was as much an occasion to discuss ways in which project management can contribute to our country's progress as it was an occasion to celebrate exemplary projects.
The whole world is today looking at India with high expectations. Whether it's the new central government's highly ambitious national programs or already executed nationbuilding projects that have shown our expertise to the world, viz. Mangalyaan, Delhi Metro, projects in oil and natural gas, or in the automobile sector. It is now a national imperative to continue on this journey of success and take India to the next level of sustainable economic growth and help build the nation.
The conference helped us focus on the key strategic initiatives and directions that the project management fraternity should take for greater adoption of project management in their respective domains. The delegates had a lot to take away from the knowledge sharing and networking sessions.
I thank our team of volunteers and PMI India team who worked tirelessly to make it happen.
With best regards,

PMI Pune-Deccan India Chapter took its 'On-Target' conference to the next level this year and presented to the community its first ever Regional Conference in Pune.
The conference provided an avenue to the community to fulfill their passion for learning new trends, understanding challenges, and absorbing best practices. Industry speakers from diverse industries addressed delegates on our conference theme, 'Project Management for Nation Building'.
I'm sure delegates have taken back valuable learnings that they can apply to their project/program management initiatives.
I hope you can glean some of the learning from our special coverage of the conference in this issue.
With best regards,
Girish R. Kadam
