Editor’s Note
SoumenDe Dear Friends,

Greetings from PMI Bangalore India Chapter!

One of the thing that really caught my attention was the news of Satya Nadella, the Indian born from Anatapur in Andhra Pradesh becoming the CEO of one of the world’s largest IT Company, Microsoft on first week of February. He defined himself as someone with a sense of curiosity and thirst for learning.
In his message to his employees he told this thing which appeared very inspirational “The best work happens when you know that it’s not just work, but something that will improve other people’s lives” While this definitely applies to us in our professional work, but I would imagine it also applies to all our volunteers who spend hours together to improve other people’s lives. The Vidyadeepa project is a standing testimonial where we are helping the school children from remote villages to catch up with their studies when they get those nagging power cuts at night.

Our volunteer PM Quest faculty members is another example. Recently during the PM Quest Faculty meet, the volunteers got together and brainstormed ideas on how to make the PM Quest module a notch better to help interested PM community members to take up the PMP certification test with lots of confidence. We continued our association with IEEE to expand our understanding of emerging trends in today’s time and enable the cooperation between industry and academia. I had often mentioned, PM volunteering offers you the readily available platform to hone your people management and leadership skills and thereby attain the satisfaction by making the lives of other people better. Do share your thoughts and suggestion with us.                                                                             
Happy Reading!

Thanks and Best Wishes,
