Deepak is a versatile and experienced professional with over a decade in Agile space as developer, technical expert, manager, process consultant and now as co creator of Agilesattva. Having worked for many years on Agile transformations, he firmly believes that goal of Agile is to create self sustained, self organised and self reliable systems. Its about “Being Agile” rather than “Doing Agile”.
Deepak has experience working with a wide range of companies – from large organisations like Nokia India, Societe Generale, to mid sized companies like Tarento Technologies and start ups like Innvo Systems.
His method of coaching is organic and sustainable as it proactively involves the system (team/organisation) in every step of transformation to build an effective process. He is known for experiential, reflective and activity based trainings. This involves setting up open spaces, role plays, games, discussions, role reversal, etc.
Deepak is also actively engaged with various industry bodies and has presented at conferences like Agile India, Regional Scrum Gathering and has been on review panel and organising groups of such conferences.
He is an engineering graduate in Computer Science and also has a Masters in psychotherapy. He has also undergone training in Transactional Analysis (TA) OD and is currently a CTA Trainee in TA psychotherapy. He integrates Transactional analysis (a social psychology developed by Dr. Eric Berne MD in 1970) and Agile to make the transformation more effective. He also uses Psychodrama (an action method developed by Jacob L. Moreno MD) in coaching the teams.

Agile Coach, Co Creator
Deepak has extensive experience of using Agile frameworks like Scrum and Kanban, he believes that approaching transformation/coaching using systemic lens is more effective instead of retro-fitting the existing frameworks. He also believes that the system (team/organisation) should drive the Agile Transformation. These believes led him to develop System Driven Transformation(SDT) approach for Agile transformations along with his colleague and co creator of AgileSattva.
