Learn & Earn Session
The chapter conducted a "learn and earn" session on the "Importance of
Spiritual and Emotional Intelligence to Build a Winning Team" on 16
January. The seminar was conducted by Tapan Bose, professor, S. P. Jain
Institute of Management & Research, who was a program manager in the
IT sector for many years before moving to academics.
The seminar attracted delegates from different industries who wanted to
adopt spiritual and emotional intelligence techniques for project
success. The seminar ended with a question and answer session.
Starting 11 January, PMI has brought in changes in the examination for PMI's Project Management Professional (PMP)®
certification. The chapter organized PMP preparatory training sessions
that covered these changes. Eleven PMP aspirants based in Kolkata from
companies such as IBM, Tata Consultancy Services, Steel Plantech India,
Currie & Brown Pvt. Ltd., and Microsec Heath Buddy Limited
registered for the sessions. Quite aptly, one of the training days fell
on the auspicious day of Saraswati Puja that Hindus dedicate to the
Goddess of learning.
