Bangalore, July 21, 2017: Technology disruption is the new normal. New competitors with innovative ideas have always disrupted old industries. However, the earlier disruption used to require years and enormous capital. Now it can be quick and cheap. Keeping this in mind, PMI Bangalore India Chapter has organized its twelfth Project Management Practitioners’ Conference (PMPC) in Bengaluru on the theme, “Architecting Project Management: For A New World Order.” India’s largest chapter of Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s leading not-for-profit professional membership association for the project management profession, has organized this three-day conference to be held between 20-22 July. The event will be held at NIMHANS Convention Center, Bengaluru and to be inaugurated by chief guest, Mr. Ashok Soota, Executive Chairman, Happiest Minds.


The objective of the conference is to bring thought leaders, industry experts, and professionals to discuss strategies to transform organizations, jointly visualize future technologies along with leadership alignment, required to sustain and grow in this New World Order. The conference will have participants from the various industries ranging from technology, manufacturing, start-ups, legal and academics discussing and debating on diverse subjects. The topics to be discussed include changing paradigm in customer engagement in the New World Order, how artificial is now officially real, smart technology to build smart India and many such interesting themes.


The conference will showcase renowned speakers from various industries and domains sharing their insights and experiences on the dramatic set of changes and how project management can help get the best out of projects. Some of the keynote speakers of the conference include Prof. Raghuram G, Director IIM- Bangalore; Ajay Anand, Global Head-Digital Marketing, Infosys; Prof. Pinkesh Shah, Co-founder, Institute of Product Leadership; Peter De Jager, International Change Management and several other luminaries.


Commenting on the objectives of the PMPC 2017, President of PMI Bangalore India Chapter, Mr. Basu Dutta, said “Over the past few years, one noticed subtle changes in the dynamics that govern various aspects of our environment, and they are increasingly gathering pace driven by the impact of geo-political reality, overbearing influence of technology, demanding business dynamics and changing demography, compelling a significant realignment in the way every stakeholder in the system conducts themselves. 


This warrants a greater responsiveness and ingenuity on business leaders and project professionals to stay relevant to the challenge of time and continue to deliver value, guard market share, and outsmart competition by unifying strategy, technical project management, and leadership.


It’s in this context, we thought it most appropriate to keep the focus of this year’s conference as “Architecting Project Management: For A New World Order”, to maintain the topical relevance of the conference theme.’’
