Last two years i have developed lot of interest on coaching and facilitation. I am fortunate to have mentors like Laurent Sarrazin, Myriam Roux, Celine Thomas, Sheshadri Shekhar and many others. I would like to share those learning's which changed my perception towards coaching and facilitation. Those learning's have made me realize that there is a long way to go to become a good facilitator and coach. I would like to thank each and everyone who inspired and supported me. The journey has just begun....

In Valtech I was part of the Agile Transformation Services group. I was working as an Agile consultant. I could work with lot of great Agilist like Greg, Guy, Nathan, etc. I won different awards from Valtech on agile related competition conducted.
While I was in Valtech I worked with companies like GE, Alcatel Lucent to implement and fine tune different agile process.
Being a consultant, I was equipped with knowledge on different areas of agile. Some highlights are below,
1. Organizational transformation (Why, what and When )
2. Process fine tuning and problem solving (with different techniques)
3. Re-defining the value stream and process effectiveness
4. Introducing practices like ATDD (Specification by example with Robot Frame work)
5. Conducting Agile foundation trainings for corporate
6. Training, coaching and mentoring different roles like PO, APO, Scrum Master, Line Manager, BA and teams.
7. Researching and sharpening my skills and presenting new ideas in different forums.
Awesome journey. Working for complete transformation. It is a paradigm shift from our regular consulting job. When i was working as an Agile consultant in Valtech, all I have to do is to put some fire and motivate people (specific duration). The real challenge is to sustain the fire and motivation. This is exactly what i am learning now!
