L&T's eight decades of project management are being captured in a 10-volume series
The L&T Institute of Project Management (L&T IPM), located at Vadodara and Chennai, creates excellence in project management with a basket of courses. L&T-IPM’s educational initiatives are emerging as benchmarks in project management education.
In line with the strategic directives set by IPM’s Project Management Council (PMC), the Institute developed 100 case studies (10 volumes) covering different aspects of project management to create a repository of experience-based learning for wider dissemination among L&T-ites.
In an online event, IPM released the first volume of the ‘L&T Body of Knowledge’ (BOK) on 27 February, the 118th birth anniversary of L&T’s late co-founder Mr S K Toubro. The book was released by members of the Board of Directors and members of the PMC, including Mr Subramanian Sarma (Whole-time Director and Sr EVP – Energy), Mr T Madhava Das (Whole-time Director & Sr EVP – Utilities), Mr A L Sekar (Advisor to CMD), Prof V T C S Rao (VP & Dean, L&T IPM).
Prof Rajiv Nehru (Dean – Designate, L&T IPM) and Dy Deans Dr Hiren Maniar (IPM Vadodara) and Prof Manish Jantikar (IPM Chennai) were present in the event, as were over 300 L&T-ites.
Prof Rao provided an overview of the L&T BOK initiative and highlighted the roadmap for case study series. The first volume consists of 10 integrated project management case studies. Volumes II, IV, VI, VIII and X will be on specific project management knowledge areas. Volumes III, V, VII and IX will contain integrated project management case studies.
Mr Sarma spoke on the importance of disseminating this copious knowledge to young L&T-ites. Mr Madhava Das emphasised the importance of project-specific case studies, stating that these would serve as a good pedagogical tool for classroom discussion and training of engineers/managers. Mr Sekar noted that such initiatives would enable transfer of knowledge accumulated by individuals to teams and the organisation. The authors were presented digital certificates by Prof Nehru.
The dignitaries added that the cases covered are some of the more interesting projects executed by L&T. Here is a partial list.
