The September month PMP boot camp concluded well on 19th Sep with 15 PMs from Wipro, TCS, HP, RR Donnelley, Oracle, iNautix, CSS Corp, Mahindra Satyam and Omnitechsys participating this time. I heard the feedback I have been wanting to hear all these months – “We are going to cherish the memories of this PMP boot camp much more than even clearing PMP” “This training can be done just for learning sake. PMP is just a by-product”. I forward all the compliments to my trainers who are making this program a great success.
Sambit Daspatnaik attended the MS Academy PMP boot camp and cleared PMP in July 2010. He is working in iSoft as Senior Program Analyst in the PMO of NHS project, the largest civil IT project in the world. Sambit has published a well researched article on implementing EVM in MS Project in his blog here http://sambit-daspatnaik.blogspot.com/ Like you people encourage my blogging efforts, if you encourage Sambit also (by leaving comments, asking questions, suggesting improvements, following his blog, etc) we can expect to see a lot of great articles like this one from Sambit. Excellent work Sambit. Looking for more such articles in the areas of Project management, program management and EPM.

I like this quote from Francis Bacon “Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.” Currently I am reading the book “The high performance entrepreneur” by Subroto Bagchi and really chewing and digesting it. And I can tell you it is very tasty. The Golden rules in the book are invaluable for a budding entrepreneur like me. I was at Sri Sankara college of Arts and Science near Kanchipuram today. When I addressed the 300+ students I shared that taste as the message. I told them that “Manager” is not a title but a reward for those who are willing to take accountability for meeting specific results; I elaborated how in this connected world, a manager’s job is to interact with client, performing organization, team, shareholders and society and produce the value that each one of them is looking for; I left them with the message that management study should not stop after college but go on forever through sources like Subroto Bagchi’s book.
