Building Tomorrow's Leaders

Students and faculty members at the inaugural session of a knowledge sharing program on the PMBOK® Guide by NICMAR and PMIPCC
On 20 February, PMI Pearl City, Hyderabad Chapter (PMIPCC) conducted a Student Leadership Competency Building (SLCB) program for students of grades 6 to 10. The event was conducted at Gamyam Model School in Gollala Mamidad, near Kakinada, and covered a total of 350 students, including those from the Zilla Parishad High School, both girls and boys.

PMIPCC directors, Venkat Reddy C. and Bhaskar Reddy G., and vice president Nagini Chandramouli, spoke at the session and took the students through facets of leadership building such as having a vision, goal-setting, self-awareness, and an analysis of their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (commonly known as SWOT). The event attracted a large number of students and parents, and received wide coverage in the local media.

Knowledge Sharing at NICMAR
PMIPCC has been closely involved with the National Institute of Construction Management and Research (NICMAR), Hyderabad, since 2014 in its knowledge sharing sessions on PMI's A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). As a part of this collaboration, several guest lectures and workshops have been conducted.

Interested students are being mentored by industry experts in their area of interest. Students are also encouraged to attend events and conferences organized by PMIPCC. The chapter has been instrumental in encouraging students to take up PMI student memberships and PMI's Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® certification.

NICMAR and PMIPCC have jointly conducted many knowledge sharing sessions based on the PMBOK® Guide for PMI student members from NICMAR. Chapter board members, Tony Jacob, Srinivas Kopparapu, Pavan Chamarthy, and Nagini Chandramouli, and PMI India Champion Kalyan Satyavada have contributed their time and expertise for this initiative. During training that spread over several weeks, students got a flavor of the subject, discussed sample questions and useful tips, besides getting their doubts clarified.
