ISO Certi??cation for the Chapter
PMI Bangalore Chapter

PMI Bangalore India Chapter has become the first chapter in India to be awarded the ISO 9001: 2008 certification for 'conducting training and organizing events in project management domain'. It is a significant achievement for the chapter as it recognizes the high standards the chapter maintains in rolling out activities for the project management community. The chapter board and a number of volunteers have been working relentlessly for the past six months to achieve this feat.

The chapter organized the Project Management Practitioners' Conference (PMPC 2014) on 22 November at the Nimhans Convention Centre, Bangalore. Over 700 delegates attended the event that demonstrated the chapter's commitment to serve the professional community with a structured knowledge sharing platform. The theme for this year conference was 'Architecting Project Management for Transforming Lives'. The conference showcased how advancements in technology, manufacturing, health care, education, and the social sector have touched our lives and made permanent impact in the way we live, study, collaborate, or do business.

On 11 December, Mr. Shankar Ramaswamy, project manager, SAP India, spoke at a Footprints event on the importance of informal communications, including humor, in project execution. The topic for the session was 'Informal Communication Management - Impact of Humor in Project Management'. Around 40 members attended the session.
