Webinar with Project Winner
PMI PUNE-DECCAN INDIA CHAPTER

Webinar with Project Winner
PMI’s Project of the Year Award recognizes large and complex projects (budgets of US$100 million or more) that deliver superior performance of project management practices. The winner of the latest award is U.S. Department of Energy’s National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) project. PMI Pune-Deccan India chapter provided a unique opportunity to PMI members to interact with the management team of NSLS-II. The interaction gave chapter members a strong understanding of some of the project management practices the winning team adopted.

The 10-year, US$ 912 million NSLS-II project has resulted in the creation of the world’s most powerful photon microscope. The microscope creates X-rays that allow scientists to see how materials in systems — such as batteries or fuel cells — behave at the nano-level, while operating in real-world conditions.

The interaction was in the form of a webinar that was delivered by Erik D Johnson, PMP, deputy director, construction, energy sciences directorate, NSLS-II, at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. He was most recently the deputy project director of the successfully concluded NSLS-II construction project, and is responsible for the oversight of construction activities at the Brookhaven National Laboratory Energy Sciences Directorate - NSLS-II.
