L&T IPM takes yet another initiative to strengthen the culture of knowledge sharing
L&T Institute of Project Management (IPM) has set up a dedicated case centre at its Vadodara campus in Gujarat. Dr C Jayakumar (EVP & Head – Corporate HR) inaugurated it on 2 November.
Case centres are popular with leading business schools across the globe. The IIMA and IIMB case centres offer various case study-related services right from providing guidance in writing cases to sales and administering awards for top cases.
The newly set up L&T Case Centre will serve as an in-house repository, rather than serving as a platform for external publication. To create the repository, IPM has extended an open invitation to all L&T employees to pen and submit case studies. One can refer to the related FAQs on L&T IPM - K@W (https://kb.lntipm.org).
The launch of L&T Case Centre was part of Knowvember, an event that IPM hosts each November to strengthen the culture of knowledge-sharing. It’s a month-long festival that provides an opportunity to L&T’s in-house experts to share within the organisation their rich experience in executing mega projects and portfolios and discuss diverse issues pertaining to the future of mega projects.
Organised in association with L&T’s Corporate HR (Learning & Development) wing, the theme of this year’s Knowvember was Strategies for Future Ready Project Management Talent. This is to help L&T’s businesses groom world-class future-ready project professionals who can home in L&T’s strategic plan LAKSHYA 2026.
The event kicked off on 1 November in the presence of Dr C Jayakumar (EVP & Head – Corporate HR), Chief Guest Mr Rajesh Mendiratta (MD – Fluor Daniel India Pvt Ltd), Guest of Honour Mr Jagdish Salgaonkar (Chairman – Merchant Ventures), Mr MVN Rao (Head – Corporate L&D, Corporate-HR), and Prof VTCS Rao (Dean – L&T IPM).
This followed a series of events through November – panel discussions, talks, enablers for project automation, and so on. Two panel discussions – ‘Dealing with uncertainties in project execution’ and ‘Powering the project management talent’ – were attended by L&T seniors from across verticals.
Then, the Watch and Win event enabled participants to visualise the challenges and lessons learned from megaprojects such as the Motera Stadium and the Mauritius Metro. Talks and enablers for project automation proved excellent opportunities for exchanging knowledge on cutting-edge technologies and tools in engineering and construction.
Distinguished  international  author Mr Jeremie Averous discussed his book Practical Cost Control Handbook for Project Managers.
