IIPM celebrated International Project Management Day on 4th Nov -06
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 tête-à-tête 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.
