Commenting on the occasion, Dr. Srini Srinivasan, Regional Managing Director, PMI South Asia said, “PMSAC is a celebration of the project management profession and a conduit for our vibrant community of professionals to learn and grow through networking and peer engagement. Projects are going beyond the obvious to reshape the world as we know it and project management lies at the heart of it. The role of project management is to guide from confusion and chaos to order and security.”
