About PMI

As the number of projects swell, the pool of credentialed talent is not keeping pace. In the Persian Gulf and China Sea regions alone — where entire cities are being built, seemingly overnight — a shortage of 6 million skilled project professionals is expected by 2013. Add to that the fact that, of the 20 million people participating in projects worldwide, just one million have professionally recognized formal training on how to best execute those projects. One thing becomes clear: The demand for skilled project managers is at a critically urgent level.

For nearly 40 years, PMI advocated on behalf of project professionals around the world. Project Management allows an individual to speak with one common language, no matter their industry, geography, or whether they manage projects, programs or portfolios. This common language steers organizations toward achieving repeatable, predictable results – critical when $12 trillion is being invested in infrastructure and capital projects worldwide over the next 12 months.

With more than one half million members, credential holders, volunteers and trained project professionals worldwide, PMI advocates project, program and portfolio management that can enhance and accelerate organizational change - driving innovation, improving bottom line performance, and strengthening competitive advantage.

PMI provides links to the tools and resources needed to help project management practitioners consider their situation and to use their best ethical judgment.

This interactive session will cover the following:

• To introduce the PMI chapter activities in India to the members of PMIWDC chapter • To give a brief introduction about Pune and Western India and provide a perspective of Economic / Socio-Political / Cultural importance of this region within India • To present specifically The following issues from PMI perspective:

o Challenges faced by Small & Medium Enterprises in Pune & vicinity, and potential solutions for implementation at project level

Pune is one of the oldest cities in India. Recently Pune has become an important hub in India for ever growing IT / Software Industry. Additionally, it is predicted that this city will outgrow other locations in auto manufacturing and it will become one of the most important centers for auto components industry

for the world market. It is natural that such a region is expected to have its share of problems due to growth. Currently, there are over 10,000 Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in and around Pune and over 200 NGOs operating various types of social welfare programs.

To address challenges faced by SMEs and NGOs, PMI Pune Chapter has embarked on a bold initiative. The following are our initial steps:

• PMI Pune Deccan Chapter will conduct 2 seminars in Pune (free of cost ) during Oct-Dec ‘08 for promoting PMI thinking & methodology for these segments and enlighten these sectors about current methodologies/concepts and fundamentals with a view to help them. • Although PMI Pune chapter has decided to address these issues on their own, the chapter is seeking help from PMIWDC through expert collaboration in these issues over a longer period of time (2-5 years).

We believe that such efforts by PMI Pune Deccan and PMIWDC will benefit the SMEs and the NGOs in the long run, and increase the visibility of PMI-led global initiatives and establish credibility of PMI in India and other developing countries
