Overview

PMI Bangalore India Chapter is proud to announce its 13th Annual Project Management Conference in Bengaluru. The focus of the conference this year will be "Architecting Project Management: For Value Creation.”

The term “Value” is different from any financial or other measures associated with it. The difference comes from the fact that Value is a perceived measure and is conditioned by the importance of the outcome to the person/organization receiving the value. In the project sense, the success of the project is measured on its ability to create value for its customer, for its organization and for the team. Value creation can never be an after-thought. It is the Pole Star for the project manager and teams and guides them to make the right decisions throughout the lifecycle of the project. It is akin to saying “doing the right things and only the right things” in the project that maximizes its value.

While it looks simple on paper, the fact that not many successful projects, even the ones that deliver the desired financial and other statistical results, are successful in delivering desired values. There could be many factors that affect the value like lack of technical excellence, change of business priorities, growth ambitions, VUCA factors etc. There are also many systemic factors arising out of the organization that is executing the project that influences the abilities of the project manager to deliver the desired value. The focus of this conference would be on how to enhance these enablers and share examples of how projects had delivered significant value to the customers. Even this can be a daunting list. After many deliberations, the following topic areas were picked for demonstration during the conference.

PMPC 2018 aims to bring thought leaders, industry experts, and professionals on a great platform to discuss strategies to transform organizations, jointly visualize future technologies along with leadership alignment required to sustain and in turn this will bring in value for the Business and to the individual.

Organizer's Views

Conference PMO Leader

Dear Practitioner,

It is our great pleasure to announce the Project Management Practitioners' Conference 2018. The chapter has a decade of experience in organizing project management conferences, including the PMI India National Conference in 2011 and 2015. We are sure that the learning's from the previous conferences coupled with the fresh ideas, passion and vision of our veteran team of passionate volunteers, will make this conference a wonderful experience for you.

As always, a lot of thinking has gone into arriving at the theme for this conference. In today's fast paced and turbulent business environment, sensing changes and responding with equal speed is proving to be a critical factor for success. Due to this fast pace of development and short-lived expectation of the market, the time available to respond to changes has drastically reduced. And hence, we thought "ARCHITECTING PROJECT MANAGEMENT for Value Creation" is the most relevant and apt theme for the conference.

Our conferences have always drawn visionaries, industry leaders, policy-makers, thought leaders, and project management champions. We have always strived to meet delegate expectations in terms of the quality of speakers and discussions, as well as knowledge sharing and networking opportunities. This year, too, all efforts will go in to make it an enriching and enlightening experience for all stakeholders.

Looking forward to seeing you!
