The Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode, Kerala is hosting a project leadership program from 6 August to 10 August. The module has been designed to sharpen the skills of project managers in executing large projects.

The following are the learning objectives of the program:
• To distinguish between elements of uncertainty and complexity in large projects;
• To use structured project methodology to address complexities in projects; and  
• To lead the project implementation team effectively to ensure high performance in the project environment.

The course facilitator is Prof. Rupesh Kumar Pati, associate professor in quantitative methods and operations management. Prof. Pati teaches project management and operations management at the institute. He has designed and conducted courses in project management and taught at several management development programs, besides handling executive management development programs for several top companies in the country.

“The non-repetitive, irreversible nature of activities, and huge capital investment make the knowledge of scientific and advanced skills mandatory for the proper management of projects. The number of tasks and their interrelationship is very complex even in the case of a small project, resulting in cost and time overruns. This project leadership program looks at various facets of designing and managing complex projects and illustrates how good project management practices can result in high performing projects,” says Prof. Pati.
