Hello Anand,

I am really glad that you are chipping into the WCFC all the way from B'lore. Pretty happy that you are offering a few leaves from your experience in Project Mgt.

Well, WCFC is earthly and the idea is to convert digital contacts into real time ones. Let me share my understanding in yet another way. There are about 150 members in WCFC, most of whom haven't even met each other. But there is a strong positive undercurrent that is clearly manifesting and is evident among at least 10-15 members. As one, who made the WCFC kickstart, I believe that a couple of people from these 10-15 will show the way up to make the initial wins. And we are doing everything to make this happen.

GOING THE PROJECT MANAGEMENT WAY IN WCFC - Pretty good idea, Anand. But we haven't identified any project so far so clearly, but our intention is to take one particular issue and work deep on it. I think that Project Management does not come into play, when an idea gets born and requiring it get planted and watered. By the way, I am a PMI member for quiet a few years, though I am not a PMP. I was also a Project Manager in a few Application SW Dev Projects, though I won't say I am a great Proj Mgr. I have also recruited a good number of Project Managers for my clients, in the recent past.

I think that the human imagination, drive, initiative, fellow-feeling, owning up a cause, sharing and caring, etc., etc. don't get happened by Project Management. But, let me hasten to add here a caveat. I do agree that we require to have a PROJECT MANAGEMENT in place, once we identify and go about doing a Project. You should be right on that. And thanks to you for waving that flag of caution.

MEETING IN RESTAURANTS: Well, I understand what you say. But you should visit Woodlands Drive-in, Chennai, to get the feel of how even a very serious discussion could be held there without almost any noticeable distractions and disturbances. Well, Anand, we want to meet and know each other. It is scary to think that everything can be managed in life, in a kind of trajectory path like a Systematic Project Management.

MEETING HELD ON 15TH MAY: It was really quiet interesting and the participation was also good. More than everything else, it was the quality of the discussion that was really quiet matured and substantive.

SUMMING UP: A huddling together with like-minded friends and trying to do good to society is what WCFC all about. We may fail in N number of issues. But we are keen about succeeding in one.

Loving, caring, showing empathy with each other (fellow feeling) and building up momentum on shared pangs and pathos are a few unwritten and unspoken, but fully experienced, gestures that govern the human society. I think that WCFC may try to find out how these basic human traits could be webbed into, in a limited context, and how life around us could be made enchanting and fulfilling, even amidst growing complexities of modern life.

Pl continue to be associated with WCFC and contribute your best to make CHENNAI, a better place to live in.
