Letter from the Managing Director, PMI India
Raj Kalady

Dear Practitioners,

Inspired by the way the Indian defence forces responded to the Nepal earthquake of April 2015, and the spirit of volunteering and social consciousness displayed by our own PMI Chennai Chapter after the Tamil Nadu flood in December 2015, we are dedicating this issue of Manage India to the thousands of unsung heroes and heroines who reach out to others in times of need, going beyond their call of duty. Also look out for PMI’s Project Management Methodology for Post Disaster Reconstruction and a senior project practitioner’s experience of managing a crisis succesfully during the Chennai flood.

I am happy to announce that the theme of our Project Management National Conference 2016 is: Project Management – Indispensable for Vision India. We picked this theme from nearly 700 ideas that the project management community came up with following a contest that PMI India had run titled, Dream a Theme. Turn to page 17 for details about the contest and the winner. The conference will be held on 17-19 November at Mumbai Renaissance Hotel & Convention Centre, Powai. Keep checking the PMI India website for more updates as we approach the conference.

The nomination process for the annual PMI India Awards Program has just begun. The nominations will be open until 16 May. This award program is the most prominent platform through which project managers can earn recognition.

I would urge you to nominate a successful project you have done or motivate another practitioner who you believe has done a great project to do so. It is important to get the recognition and at the same time communicate to others the factors that lead to success of the project. Click here to submit your nomination.

We have recently published a white paper on project maturity, in collaboration with NEC Technologies India (NTI). The white paper is based on research conducted by NTI among selected Indian and multi-national IT companies in India on the capabilities that they are building to scale the project management maturity curve. Click here to read the white paper.

Through a tie-up with Techgig.com, we are co-hosting a series of webinars on project management. Termed PMI’s Project Management Leadership Series, there will be a total of 24 webinars. Click here to register and be up-to-date with the latest thoughts and ideas on project management.

Warm regards,
