PMI Bangalore Chapter


PM Essence
Editor’s Note
Raj Dear Colleagues,

Warm greetings from PMI Bangalore India Chapter!

There is a sense of change in the air and our beloved chapter wasn’t an exception. New board members have come in, the grueling PMPC 2014 is in the horizon and it was only natural that we reorganized ourselves to cater to the increased set of responsibilities. 
Happy to be taking over the editorial tasks needed for publishing our PM Essence, from this month onwards, from the ever passionate and a very thorough Soumen. Many thanks to him for keeping us in touch with all that is happening at the chapter, the opportunity and the motivation provided to many of us who are willing to share the knowledge and experience with the member community. If there are any mistakes you now know the person responsible.
This edition, as always, brings to you the details of the exciting events that happened at the chapter. Each of these events provided practical inputs to the practitioners as well as help them earn vital PDUs (Professional Development Units) required for maintaining their PMP certification. This edition also covers an interesting discussion on what is “in-scope” and the importance of what is out-of-scope and the transformational effects that an enabling technology like Analytics can have on business. Please also look out for this edition of the lighter side of PM. Happy reading…
We want to improve and continue to stay relevant. We would like to hear your feedback and what you would like us do better. Please feel free to drop in a line to
Happy Reading!

Warm Regards,
Raj Nandyala, PMP
