We have an impressive line-up of keynote speakers Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty, chairman and founder, Narayana Health; B.V.R. Mohan Reddy, chairman, NASSCOM, and founder executive & chairman, Cyient India Ltd.; Manish Sabharwal, chairman and co-founder, Teamlease Services; and Professor S.V. Raghavan, professor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology. Check the conference website for more updates about speakers and the agenda.

In this issue of Manage India, we are carrying thoughts and ideas from some of our keynote speakers on the conference theme, ARCHITECTING PROJECT MANAGEMENT for Redefining India... Also featured here are snapshots of a few projects that have redefined India.

PMI India collaborated with the Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) on a report on "Leveraging the Art and Science of Project Management to Realize Make in India". The report has identified top three priorities to reduce the gap between the 'as-is' and the 'to-be' state in India for the success of 'Make in India'. The report will be launched soon. Watch this space for updates.

We are making some changes in the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam. The last day to take the current PMP® exam will now be 11 January 2016. After this date, the PMP exam will reflect the new exam content outline. Click here for more details.

The Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program has undergone some changes. Effective 1 December 2015 the CCR program will be aligned with the employer-identified skills depicted in the PMI Talent Triangle to ensure you are equipped to remain relevant in a continually changing business environment.

All the best to certificate and credential aspirants. I also hope to see you at the Project Management National Conference.

Warm regards,

Raj Kalady
Managing Director, PMI India
