Programme Overview
Project management is now generally considered a critical business skill. By some estimates over 60% of business is conducted in the form of projects. And yet, a lot of projects in both the public and private sectors are persistently late and over budget. Project management skills can no longer be relegated to a few so-called project managers in the organisation. They need to be disseminated more widely as many organisations move towards a project-oriented structure to emphasize greater accountability and efficiency in execution. Furthermore, we cannot confine ourselves to single projects; the ability to manage a program of several projects concurrently under tight budgetary and resource constraints is an essential skill. In recent years projects have acquired a much greater strategic dimension. It is not only necessary to execute projects successfully, but it is even more important to choose to do the right projects in the first place. After all, the right portfolio of projects constitutes the firm’s business strategy. This four day course discusses all of the above aspects of project management.

Programme Objective
The principal objectives of the P3M course are as follows:

  • Understand the essential ingredients of project success – roles, responsibilities, organization, team work, and processes.
  • Gain an in-depth understanding of the two main types of projects: product development and process improvement.
  • Understand the fundamental importance of organizational change management to project management success.
  • Gain proficiency in the tools and techniques of project management – planning, controlling, and implementation.
  • Appreciate the additional constraints imposed by program management.
  • Understand the strategic nature of enterprise project management – project evaluation, selection, and portfolio criteria.

The course contents are grouped into the following categories:

  • Project fundamentals: The topics covered include Risk Management, Commercials, Team Performance, and Stakeholder Communications.
  • Tools: These comprise the “science” of project management – WBS and estimation, Realistic scheduling and resources, Budget and cash flow, Monitoring progress and the Earned Value Method.
  • People Issues:  Team dynamics, stakeholder analysis, conflict types and resolution, and project communication.
  • Product Development and Process Improvement Projects:  Characteristics of each type, and the levers of organisational change management.
  • Enterprise Project Management (EVM):  Multiproject (program) management and resource implications, evaluation and selection of a portfolio of projects and relation to business strategy.

The course is mainly delivered through case discussion and lectures. However, readings, presentations and laptop computer exercises also form an important part. Attendees who are considering taking (or have already taken) the PMP qualification of Project Management Institute will find the course very useful.

Who Should Attend
The course emphasizes the strategic, organizational and management aspects of projects. As such the technical (including computational) detail is minimal, and included for completeness purposes. We therefore recommend the course for middle and senior managers (including project managers) in all industries (public and private) that deal with projects. So widespread is the use of projects that we believe project management skills are likely to acquire greater prominence in virtually all industries.

He is also an active researcher in the field of Production and Operations Management. His research includes the analysis of various flexibility issues in supply chains. This includes the study of flexible replenishment policies in the context of Vendor Managed Inventory and the flexibility requirements of manufacturing firms in general and manufacturing start-ups in particular. His other research interests include event studies in Operations Management and issues in Supply Chain Management. Currently, he is

working on sustainability, disruption management, and product modularity issues. He has also been awarded IIM Calcutta Alumni Association (Mumbai Chapter) best publication award for a doctoral student. His research has been published in journals such as the European Journal of Operational Research, Decision Sciences, International Journal of Production Economics, Information Systems Frontier, and Computers & Industrial Engineering.

Professor Sudhir Chadha is a graduate of IIT Kanpur, and obtained his doctorate in theoretical physics at the University of Oxford where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He then pursued research in theoretical particle physics first at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen (as a Royal Society European Fellow), then at Centre d’Etudes de Nucleaire a Saclay in Paris, CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear research) in Geneva, and the University of Oxford. He has published over 25 papers in international journals. His main research interests were (are) in fundamental physics, unified theories, and the structure of the Higgs boson. He is also the author (with H. B. Nielsen) of the so-called Nielsen-Chadha theorem on symmetry breaking in nonrelativistic systems. Following his academic career in physics, Sudhir joined IBM UK, and became a consulting Partner in the IBM Global Business Services Division specializing in supply chain management, innovation, and project management. He executed major projects in the manufacturing industry with many clients including Rolls-Royce Aeroengines, Caterpillar, Honda Motors, and Rover Automobiles. About ten years ago Sudhir returned to academia (again!) to teach supply chain and project management at the University of Warwick UK as well as part-time at the IIMB (as an adjunct faculty).
