Adesh Jain, President, Project Management Associates (PMA) and Chairman of International Institute of Projects and Programme Management has been conferred the Lifetime Achievement Award by Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (Independent Charge) yesterday, according to an official statement.
Jain is globally acclaimed for his initiative to train managers in project management and create a right mindset for the same.
This latest recognition is another feather in Jain’s cap. Among his other major achievements, he was elected in 2005 the first non-European President of IPMA in its history of 49 years, and the Government of Turkey released a postal stamp (limited edition) in his honour in 2010 during the IPMA World Congress. He was also awarded the Honorary Chairmanship of China Construction Project Management Committee (CPMC) in Beijing in 2006. Jain had organised India’s first project management International conference in association with UNDP and since then has been passionately involved in creating a project-oriented India.
