Dear Dr. Sahasrabuddhe (Director, College of Engg Pune)
I first met Mr. Sasindran in a series of Consultancy reviews of a major project at WISE, on creating pathways to renewable energy sources. He had been commissioned to write one of the large Background Papers (Assessment of Thermal Power generation for India in the medium term) for this task. I was quite impressed with his experience, and in particular with his ability to combine Cost Analysis with Future technology-outlook to select the right technology and systems.
Subsequently I have met him a couple of times in connection with his plans to create a Project Management Course (for technical managers, as well as for Engineering students). He has put in a lot of research and collation for this course, which includes a number of case studies drawn from his own experience in India and, of course, abroad. He has scheduled the first of these courses shortly, in Hyderabad, and has been interested in meeting Directors of Educational Institutions to see if there could be some synergy. I did not get the impression that he is interested in making this a lucrative "lecture circuit" at all.
I am asking him by a copy of this letter to be in touch with you and set up a date at which he can present his ideas for a short-course on Project Management (maybe 2days; perhaps repeated in later weeks).I am asking him by a copy of this letter to be in touch with you and set up a date at which he can present his ideas for a short-course on Project Management (maybe 2days; perhaps repeated in later weeks).
I trust you will agree to see him and give him a hearing.
With kind regards,
