Global Symposiums

Implementation of projects on time…within budget…with quality is becoming most crucial for the country’s development. A project is rendered unfeasible through unnecessary delays and time and cost overruns. Today’s world has no tolerance for slippages. A saving of even 1 day in completing a project, which is possible through exposure to latest project management knowledge, translates to tremendous overall savings for the country.

In 1992, CEPM had taken the innovative and challenging step of organizing  the First International conference on Project Management in India 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 1992 conference was indeed a historic milestone as it laid the foundation of scientific project management in India.

Since 1992 CEPM has been organizing a widely acclaimed International project management global symposium every single year.

In 2017, CEPM organized it’s 25th annual Global Symposium – a record feat worldwide!
