In 1992, CEPM had taken the innovative and the challenging step of organizing India’s First International conference on Project Management on the theme “New Dimensions in Project Management”. This historic project management conference was organized in association with United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and was supported by the Department of Economic Affairs, Ministry of Finance, Government of India. This laid the foundation for introducing scientific project management discipline in India.
In view of CEPM’s outstanding success in promoting project management, UNDP again associated with CEPM for their next two International conferences in 1993 and 1994. Since then CEPM has been organizing a widely acclaimed International project management global symposium every single year.
