President’s Message

Dear PM practitioners!

Welcome to the PMIPCC Gyan Lahari 2018 Project Management Conference to be held in Hyderabad this July.

At PMIPCC we have been organizing the conference every year and have had a very good response from our member community and the society at large. We feel energized to keep this connect going with one more event this year. With the experience we have gained in the last few years, we are confident that the delegate experience will be as never before.

Industry and Professionals are at cross-roads today with the technology changes that are happening at breath-taking speeds. This technological under-current sweeping not just the IT Industry but across Industry sectors - and there isn’t really a enterprise or industry where the impact of this revolution isn’t being felt. It’s really important to envision how these changes of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Block-chain and several other advances in the Tech space are going to pan out in the future. The conference is an endeavour to unravel this and help Project Management professionals prepare for the current and the future times.

Please join us to hear from industry leaders about the prognosis of the future and the ways of being at the forefront of this revolution
