Project Management Regional Conference, 2021

29 - 30 May


Dr. Srini Srinivasan

Managing Director, PMI India

Over the last few years PMI has been talking about Project Management Technology Quotient (PMTQ). Which means that going forward, both organizations and individuals must have the right mix of technology and project management skills to succeed. While this was in the anvil, COVID-19 has only hastened the process with Digital Project Management almost becoming the norm.

What are the right technological solutions for project success? Should you be using multiple tech driven solutions? Will there be a one-size-fits-all remedy for this? These are some of the questions that will be raised, discussed and laid threadbare at the 7th Project Management Regional Conference. The team of volunteers lead by the PMI Pune Chapter and ably supported by Chapter leaders from PMI South Asia are working hard to bring you a fantastic line up of speakers to elucidate on the conference theme of Digital Project Management: New Horizons. New Strategies.

I welcome you all to this two-day virtual conference that will be hosted by the PMI Pune Chapter. The virtual conference will be held on 29th & 30th May and will offer a platform for you to interact, gain knowledge and share ideas with business leaders, industry experts, leading practitioners and peers from various industries.

Please do bookmark the conference website so that you can stay abreast of any updates. See you at the conference!

Dear Professional,

COVID-19 induced pandemic and disruption is being seen as the catalyst for a global reset and the acceleration of digital transformation. PMI has been at the forefront of recommending the right mix of technology, digital and project management for successfully delivering value through projects. Across the organization, everyone must recognize that, for a business to achieve sustained innovation excellence, it is very important that an innovative mindset must be integral to every employee’s job profile. Also, Leaderships teams need to measure and reward innovation, more so in project management offices, so that it becomes a core competency that drives priority-setting, resource allocation, talent retention, talent acquisition, and the development of influential leaders to deliver value through project management.

New age leadership teams know that many old ways of working are basically incompatible with a successful digital transformation culture and a tremendous, yet subtle cultural change is required. Gone are the days of managing work using pen and paper, whiteboards and dry erase markers, sticky notes, and your cubicle walls. Digital project management is making stuff happen in an increasingly connected digital world. Hence it is no surprise that today's project managers are moving their teams and processes online to keep up with the competition and deliver at a faster pace than ever before.

We welcome you all to this two-day virtual conference that will be hosted by the PMI Pune Chapter. The virtual conference will be held on 29th & 30th May and will be a great digital forum to enable interaction, exchange of knowledge and sharing of ideas with business leaders, industry experts, leading practitioners, and peers from various industries.

Best wishes,
On behalf of the Organizing team
