Happy New Year!
We at PMI India are starting the first quarter of 2017 with the Project
Management Research and Academic Conference (RAC) from 2-4 March at the
Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. In Q2, we have the third Regional
Conference, being held in Kolkata on 22 April.As you would know, RAC is our biennial event that provides a platform to
academicians, researchers, and students of project management and
allied disciplines to discuss and share ideas on how to advance project
management education in India. The conference theme this year is
“Accelerating Development: Harnessing the Power of Project Management.”
During the three-day conference, there will be tutorials, workshops, and
technical paper presentations, besides keynotes by noted academicians.
Our Regional Conference is travelling to a new city – Kolkata – and will
be hosted by PMI West Bengal Chapter. We are excited to move to east
India for the first time after having had successful editions of the
regional conference in Pune and Kochi. The theme this time is
“Sustainable Socioeconomic Growth of the Region, Through Project Management.”
You will be happy to know that we have decided on the theme, dates, and
venue for Project Management National Conference 2017. The conference
will be held at the ITC Grand Chola Hotel, Chennai, 15-17 September
2017. We selected this year’s theme, Project Management – Powering
India’s Global Leadership, through the Dream-a-Theme contest in which
over 600 practitioners participated. Congratulations to Eshwar Nurani
Parasuraman from Schneider Electric India Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore, for
winning the contest with this theme.

The 2017 Pulse of the Profession®: The High Cost of Low Performance
study was released in Sydney, Australia, on 8 February. The study shows
that both India and China outperformed the global average in terms of
dollars wasted due to poor project performance. India’s waste percentage
was 7.3 percent (US$73 million per US$1 billion invested), as against
China’s 8.2 percent and the global average of 9.7 percent. The study
also demonstrates strong results for both the countries across various
talent measures and project performance categories.
This year we have prepared a special PM Fun-DasTM 2017 calendar for you. For free download, click here. I hope we can add some fun and humor in your work life with this small gift.
I wish you success and well-being in projects at work and beyond in 2017.
