PM Essence
Editor’s Note
SoumenDe Dear Friends,

I am happy to share that new revamped Essence is beginning to create ripples of interest in our PM community. I feel good when people approach me to enquire about the details of next release and express their interest to contribute. One can contribute in one or many of the various sections contained in the Essence. Writing an article for Essence provides both a challenge and an opportunity.

Opportunity – because, this is a quick way to test drive one’s passion for expressing one’s thoughts on project management and reaching them to a wide community. Challenge – because one has to extract time from one’s busy schedule to pen down the article, which might be lying in a dormant form in one’s mind. Spotlight section of this edition provides a very interesting insight on how Murali addresses this challenge. The PM Connect section strives to stoke the mind of PMP certification aspirants by providing a fresh line of thought concerning project contract management.

As we gear up for goal setting for New Year, I am hoping, we as PM practitioners will continue to champion the project management mind- set in our respective organizations. An economist intelligence report that I recently read states that 80 percent of global executives believed having project management as a core competency helped them remain competitive during the recession. It said that the right resources, a clear timeframe for delivery and senior leadership support, combined with strong and disciplined project management practices are what is required to drive an organization forward. Let us borrow these dollops of inspiration from these findings and continue to evangelize project management for achieving business goals.

PM Essence is YOUR newsletter and we are very sure, you will contribute wholeheartedly to enrich its contents for the benefit of PMI community of which YOU are a part.

For more details about this volunteering opportunity and for your reference offline, you can download a PDF document from the chapter website.

Thanks and looking forward to an overwhelming response,

Thanks and Best Wishes,
