PM Footprints Sessions & Lamps Distribution

PMI Bangalore Chapter organized two sessions of PM Footprints Sessions on 5 and 19 December 2013. In the first session, Mr. N. Parthasarthy, an independent project consultant, spoke on “Use Work Authorization System as a Risk Reduction Tool”. Work authorization system is a part of enterprise environmental factors and a well-known project management tool for authorizing and tracking project work. In chemical and oil & gas projects, elements of this system are also used for risk reduction. In the second session, Mr. N. Jayaram of ANZ Banking Group spoke on “Program Management - Way Forward and Experiences”. The topic provided an introduction to program management and its benefits to pave the way for better decision-making and governance.

On 28 December, the chapter and Rotary Club West distributed LED lamps and the newly initiated “e-pathshala” (e-school) materials to students of Government High School, Doddashivara in Malur taluk, Kolar. The chapter has been distributing solar lamps and chargers through the Vidyadeepa lamps project to school children in and around Bangalore and laptops and desktops through “e-pathshala” to schools. This year Rotary Club West has an ambitious plan to distribute nearly 5,000 lamps to rural school children. This is being done with the assistance of PMI Bangalore Chapter and a team of volunteers.
