The Bangalore chapter of TMC has been active for over two years and has strived to create an awareness amongst the Bangalore section professionals about the challenges of technology management and the need to approach it systematically. The first step was to reach out to the professional audience and get their attention and participation through activities such as invited talks, news letter etc. The newsletter (eZine) was appreciated by the community and other chapters have shown interest in starting similar newsletters.
The Chapter has the following activties planned for the current year:
1. Guest lectures on innovative approaches to technology management
2. Quarterly newsletter with articles on technology management
3. Hold Theme based workshops
These lectures and articles are either on new practices and applications, or tutorials and case studies on established practices. Towards these objectives, the chapter invites prominent managers, business leaders and technical gurus to talk at our forum and publish articles in our newsletter, and share their insights with our members.
