PMI Bangalore Chapter


Editor’s Note
SoumenDe Dear Friends,

Please accept hearty and warm greetings from PMI Bangalore Chapter. I am immensely pleased to roll out this edition of our Chapter’s newsletter to you. This edition will take you through some new sections and I am hoping this would improve sustainability of the contents and increase the level of engagement with you all. Apart from hearing from leader and PM practitioners, we are introducing a section where PMP aspirants can use this space to ask specific questions and share their thoughts and opinions with us. We have a pool of experienced project management experts who will be able to clarify your queries.

I cherish a dream, like many of you, of taking this newsletter to match with international standard. Citius, Altius, Fortius, the inspiring Olympic motto translates to “Faster, Higher, Stronger”, has a special relevance for this revamped newsletter. This should certainly motivate us to apply this in our pursuit of excellence. Do let us know what you feel about this and how we can together take it to the next level. PM Essence is YOUR newsletter and I need support and whole hearted cooperation from each one of you to reach on contents, layout design and anything that helps us reach our destination smartly and quickly. I would be delighted if you can be a part of this journey and share your thoughts with me at
Thanks and Best Wishes,
Soumen De, PMP
