L&T’s project professionals get a boost from a training programme run in collaboration with IIM Indore
In keeping with L&T’s strength as a knowledge powerhouse, L&T Institute of Project Management (IPM) commenced the 5th batch of its Programme for Excellence in Project Delivery (PEPD) at IIM Indore on May 8.
The 5th batch consists of 23 Tier-1 participants from different L&T verticals such as Buildings & Factories, L&T Energy Hydrocarbon, Defence, Heavy Civil Infrastructure, Water & Effluent Treatment, Transportation Infrastructure, Minerals & Metals and Heavy Engineering.
PEPD is part of IPM’s flagship Pragati Project Leadership Development Programme designed to develop project leadership across L&T verticals and at various levels. It encompasses four levels of career progression programmes, aligned to a competency-based framework comprising project management competencies and motivational fitness for project leaders.
Spread over a year, PEPD comprises four modules, each involving five days of classroom interaction. The modules cover themes like project management overview and schedule management; project cost and finance management; supply chain and contract management; and construction, commissioning and close-out.
It includes a simulation course on project management. In addition to this, assignments and a capstone project give the participants an opportunity to strengthen their fundamentals by reflecting on the key learnings/ideas from the modules for business/project application.
There are also various inter-module engagements designed as part of the programme. These include completion of L&T ATL and Construction Industry Institute (CII) courses on business/financial acumen, analytical thinking, introduction to construction safety, design for construction safety, constructability, effective lessons learned and planning for start-up.
On successful completion of PEPD, a joint certificate from L&T IPM and IIM Indore is awarded to the participants.
