About Sai

B Sai Prasad, PMP®, PMI-SP®, MVP Business Solutions (Project) has been associated with MPUG since 2012. He got introduced to Microsoft Project “accidentally” at work. Through exploration and research, he learned how to and how not to use Project. To help those who might have similar challenges, he started contributing by answering questions in MPUG forums, followed by writing articles to benefit the larger community. With the support of Melanie Cosklo, President of MPUG, he founded MPUG Chennai Chapter (http://chennai.mpug.com) in India. He and his volunteers mobilize speakers, sponsors, and audiences to make every chapter event successful.

Apart from Microsoft Project, he is the past Champion of Project Management from PMI India and also Champion Advisory Committee, PMI India. He is awarded the Champion of the Quarter (Q4 – 2012) and Delivery Excellence Award (2011-2012, 2012-2013) from PMI India. He’s also the editor of the project management book, Forecast Scheduling with Project 2010 and Forecast Scheduling with Project 2013. Microsoft recognized his effort and was awarded the prestigious Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award four times in a row since the year 2014.
