Webinar with Project WinnerPMI’s Project of the Year Award recognizes large and complex projects
(budgets of US$100 million or more) that deliver superior performance of
project management practices. The winner of the latest award is U.S.
Department of Energy’s National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II)
project. PMI Pune-Deccan India chapter provided a unique opportunity to
PMI members to interact with the management team of NSLS-II. The
interaction gave chapter members a strong understanding of some of the
project management practices the winning team adopted.
The 10-year, US$ 912 million NSLS-II project has resulted in the
creation of the world’s most powerful photon microscope. The microscope
creates X-rays that allow scientists to see how materials in systems —
such as batteries or fuel cells — behave at the nano-level, while
operating in real-world conditions.
The interaction was in the form of a webinar that was delivered by Erik D
Johnson, PMP, deputy director, construction, energy sciences
directorate, NSLS-II, at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. He was most
recently the deputy project director of the successfully concluded
NSLS-II construction project, and is responsible for the oversight of
construction activities at the Brookhaven National Laboratory Energy
Sciences Directorate - NSLS-II.
