International Project Management Day Celebration on 4th Nov'06

       IIPM celebrated International Project Management Day on 4th Nov -06 at Hotel Quality Inn Sabari to commemorate the practicing project management professionals around the world and to create awareness about growing need of project management professionals in IT/Construction/Entertainment industry.

      The Chief Guest of the event was Dr. Shalini, Ph.D, a leading Psychiatrist. Initially Mr.O.Arivazhagan, PMP, CEO, IIPM welcomed the gathering. In his inaugural address Mr.Arivazhagan emphasized the importance of the role women play in project management. He pointed out two special skills that women display compared to men in managing projects. The two qualities that he observed were consistency in performance and commitment to the job under taken. Later, surprisingly this was reiterated by Dr.Shalini, in her address with the scientific facts. Dr.Shalini, in her address excellently brought-out the advantages of employing women in project management with the help of the structure of the male and female brains. Among the advantages she cited in favor women were better organizational skills, consistent performance, holistic thinking, to name a few. She also touched upon the disadvantages the women posses as managers. According to Dr.Shalini, women lack in penetrative thinking, single minded devotion and in risk taking, to name a few. However, it was interesting to note that the law of success demands 35% hard skills and 65% soft skills. The later being the forte of women, women seem to possess natural managerial skills than men through their nature endowed soft skills.

      Mr.Sridharan, PMP, Analyst, World Bank and Mrs. Aarathi Parthasarathi, Asst. Vice President, ABN Amro Bank also spoke on the topic. Later, Mr.Arivazhagan had tte--tte with Dr. Shalini where in many myths about women in project management was broken. The participants had a nice time in learning the managerial talent and the potential women have in work place. Prizes were distributed to excellent contributors to project management community. Finally, Mr. Shiva, Admin Executive, IIPM thanked the organizers, participants for a wonderful evening.
