  1. 1. INTERNAL STUDENT LEADERSHIP DAY (ISLD) Ignite the minds of youth to build the nation STUDENT LEADERSHIP COMPETENCY BUILDING (SLCB) An Initiative to transform today’s students to tomorrow’s Leaders….
  2. 2. Prologue Project Management Institute, USA ( is a non-profit organization engaged in advocacy of project management profession. It is more than forty year old institute and the Project Management standards of PMI are globally renowned. Project Management Institute (PMI) has presence in more than 180 countries with 250 chapters across the world. In India there are seven chapters and PMI Pearl City Chapter (, Hyderabad is one of the vibrant chapters in India, and also a recipient of “2006 Community Advancement through Project Management Award” and “2010 Recognition of Excellence Award” in PMI Component Category. Apart from the advocacy of PM knowledge, PMIPCC has embarked on various activities for Academia and Civic Society development. One such developmental activity is named as “Student Leadership Competency Building (SLCB)”. This is a unique initiative enabling the students of 12-22 years age to acquire leadership competencies and enable them to be Industry Ready and Nation Ready leaders by the time they complete their academics. This document details the background of the initiative, what we intend to do, and how Volunteers and Industry can be part of this journey for the benefit of the students of the partnering institutions. The Thought Leaders SLCB initiative is conceived and designed by V. Srinivasa Rao (VSR) in the year 2005, who was then a member of Board for PMI Pearl City Chapter, and was unveiled during Asia Pacific Conference - Gyan Lahari. This program was inaugurated by Prof. M. R. Rao, Dean, Indian School of Business (ISB). The details about this program were shared with Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, the then Honorable President of India. The expectations set by the then President of India for PMIPCC is to implement this program prominently in the rural areas of India. Leaders are Born or Made? We as Indian citizens dream to see our country India, among one of the developed nations of the world. Several factors play a significant role in contributing to the growth of a nation, and a few imperative factors being: Making Project Management Indispensable for Business Results
  3. 3.  Quality of education  Quality of citizen life  Business growth The future of the nation rests in hands of our young generation. It is time for India to invest in the development of its young generation so that it is ready to take up the future challenges. There is a compelling need to groom our young generation in academic institutions to produce „Nation Ready‟ and „Industry Ready‟ leaders, who can contribute in the development of the nation and industry. PMIPCC believes that leaders are not only born but can also be made. A movement is required to develop the young students into leaders. Project Management Institute, Pearl City Chapter (PMIPCC) has taken up this challenge and conceptualized this initiative. Nation Ready Leader: The political stability of the nation is an important factor in determining the economic growth and quality of citizen life. The prosperity of the nation is assured when visionary governance systems and policies are put in place. The Nation Ready Leaders will bring innovation in the governance methods within short span of time. The Nation Ready leaders coming out of the academic institutions can bring political stability and visionary leadership. These dynamic leaders can introduce timely and innovative citizen services, create the right environment for global business and develop innovative governance models and so on. Industry Ready Leader: Sustainable and Continuous growth of industry is a vital factor in determining the economic growth of the nation. The Industry Ready leaders coming out of the Academia will have the ability to introduce timely new products/new services, bringing distinctive competencies and developing innovative business models and so on to address the global business demands. To fulfill the dream of securing a place among top developed nations, India must produce leaders out of the students not just from premier institutes like IITs/IIMs but also from even the ordinary academic institutes Making Project Management Indispensable for Business Results
  4. 4. Leadership competency building exercise is one of the great tools required to mould the minds of young Indians to take up future Industry and Nation related challenges and risks effectively. It is essential to plant the seeds of leadership in the mind of students of age groups of 12 – 22. Following are some of the key characteristics of leadership:  Bring in Difference –The ability and attitude to challenge the existing processes, systems, policies for continuous improvements and innovation.  Work for Common Goal –The ability and attitude to define and realize the vision, values and objectives. Leaders can motivate ordinary individuals to work for common vision/goals.  Empower Individuals –The ability and attitude to mentor and coach others and give them the tools, techniques and methods to solve the problems. Gain the confidence of peers and others.  Lead by Example - The ability and attitude to solve problems without dependency, think like entrepreneur, take the risks and stand for the teams especially in instances of failures.  Continuous Learning – The ability and attitude to honestly assess and understand the self, assess their knowledge, problem solving, and to continuously strive to improve their subject matter expertise. The Journey It is a long but interesting journey, and we are confident to achieve this goal with passionate volunteers of the chapter and partners who have similar objectives with passion and commitment.

Compelling need from the Academic Institutions.. As strongly felt by the industry, it is a compelling need and expectation from the academic institutions that the students be made ready with required soft skills in addition to academic excellence. While it is important for students to excel in their studies, it is equally crucial that the institutions provide opportunity for students to gain Leadership skills and in a way make them ready for the nation and the industry. Leadership Center of Excellence (LCE): PMIPCC also has setup Leadership Center of Excellence at the chapter with group of enthusiastic and passionate leaders from the industry, who are ready to provide the required guidance and groom the leaders of tomorrow. Student Leadership Advisory Council (SLAC): PMI Pearl City Chapter provides the required guidance for the academic institutions to setup “SLAC” comprising Teachers, Parents, Alumni and Students. PMIPCC enables the SLAC at the institution to be able to conduct several programs and create mentoring pool, and act as first level contact for the students. Modus Operandi PMIPCC collaborates with the institution and help the institution setting up Student Leadership Advisory Council (SLAC), a local body at the institution for facilitation of the “Student Leadership Competency Building” Program:  PMIPCC – LCE and the institutions‟ SLAC, together plan a profiling of the program suitable for the students of the institution.  PMIPCC Initially conducts few training programs, on some of the knowledge areas through its industry experts.
