PROFILE

SUMMARY

I'm a lifelong learner and passionate about Entrepreneurship, Program/Project Management and Lean-Agile philosophies. I've been practicing them at my workplace as well as in my personal life.

I've been managing complex programs/projects in distributed environment, supporting the pre-sales teams, managing those accounts and also have a proven track record of doing Agile, Project and Program Management consulting, training and coaching to various internal and external clients. I was also responsible for managing the P&L for my Business Unit.

I've travelled internationally (Brazil, China, Malaysia, UK and the USA) on these assignments in addition to all major cities of India and my clients have got sustainable benefits due to my service.

To validate my new learnings, I keep on doing elite global certifications. I also have two super elite certifications as Program Management Professional (PgMP) and Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) Program Consultant (SPC).

Knowledge sharing is my passion and so far I have trained and coached hundreds of professionals globally for the SAFe Agilist/Practitioner, PgMP, PMP, PMI-ACP, PSM I, Kanban, Lean Six Sigma YB/GB/BB, CTFL, CISA and ITIL certifications thru various organizations, REPs, meetups and my employers.
