PMI Project Management National Conference 2011


Message from Raj Kalady, Managing Director, PMI (India)

Dear Practitioner,

The third PMI India National Conference on Project Management comes at a time when the country's development has been a subject of debate and discussion in various forums. The conference provides the right platform to take this debate further. There is tremendous scope in how the project management community can contribute toward the country's development. The excitement in the community over the conference 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 have 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 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 line-up 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.

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.
