Practitioners Turn Actors for the Day
PMI India

The Dramatic World of Project Management, an event organized by project management mentor and PMI India’s registered education provider, Dhananjay Gokhale, took place on a larger scale as it entered its five year this year.

Teams from different organizations presented skits around project management over two days, 4-5 March, at Jyotsna Bhole Auditorium in Pune. There were seven industry teams, 102 participants, around 265 attendees, 19 volunteers, three judges, two members of the jury, and two backstage engineers.

The first performance by Sailpoint Technologies India Pvt. Ltd. was on demonetization. In the next skit by Resilient Cosmeceuticals Pvt. Ltd., the team used characters from the Mahabharata to highlight common project challenges in today’s times. A team from Allscripts India Pvt. Ltd. raised the problem of insufficiently defined project scope in their skit. Home Ministry Vs. Chicken Butter Masala by Inautix Technologies was a humorous take on finding resolution between warring parties. Alfa Laval India Ltd. used film production as a lesson in project management. KPIT Technologies Ltd. also used mythology to drive home the importance of execution, among other aspects, as key to success. A production by Aker Powergas Subsea Pvt. Ltd. explored ways to overcome one’s demons to achieve success.

The themes got the audience interested in project management concepts and PMI’s A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide).

For the first time, participants received a trophy that was especially designed for the occasion. The trophy that represents ‘the hand of project management’ shows how it’s an art of fine balancing.
