Overview

In the competitive global economy companies are slowly moving towards conducting their business in form of Projects (small or large scale). Project Management is the art and science of managing the business of an organization/nation to achieve its stated vision. While quite a few Indian projects have achieved outstanding performance and even set international benchmarks, Project Management in India still has tremendous scope for improvement for both in theory and applications. Project mode of operation is becoming common in almost all sectors like construction, telecommunication, defense, information technology, manufacturing, disaster management, social sector. There is a need to do focused research to understand the complexities and uncertainties that determine the success of a project. There is also a need to create “project mode of thinking” among practitioners and graduates to effectively deliver projects in variety of fields. All these necessitate focused effort on developing faculty who could conduct in-depth research while mastering the art of curating project management practitioners through teaching and training. Realizing this need, IIMK is organizing a 6 day Faculty Development on “Project Management Excellence in the Emerging World of Disruption” from February 25- March 2, 2019. This FDP will be organized in conjunction with PMI Research and Academic Conference which will be organized in the same venue between February 28-March 2, 2019 giving participants an unique opportunity to interact with a variety of expert researchers, academicians and practitioners. The theme of PMIRAC2019 is “Project management in the emerging world of disruption”. On completion of the FDp the participant would receive the FDP certificate from IIMK and conference participation certificate from PMI

Objective

Better awareness and advancement in technology have made a number of pedagogies available today with the teachers such as case study methods, simulations, power-point presentations, role-play, assignments, chalk-board teaching etc. A teacher needs to make a rational choice of one or more of these pedagogies. However, the use of the innovative methods of teaching-learning requires training and expertise on the part of the teacher.
