I am a people performance scientist. I help organizations expedite the delivery of value by building high performance teams through coaching and mentoring; through innovative methods to drive change and transformation across teams; by driving enterprise-level agile adoption, agile transformation and fostering personal effectiveness strategies.
My deep expertise includes program management disciplines across Agile, Waterfall and Lean methodologies to deliver projects that optimize IT investments supporting client business strategies.
I have demonstrated expertise in coaching agile coaches, agile coaching, developing distributed multi-scrum teams that build innovative enterprise-class products.
Over the years, I have been deeply interested in how individual/team development contributes to organizational progress, profitability and growth.
This interest led me to study various cognitive models, behavior modification techniques, systems thinking, behavior economics, drivers for high performance teams, coaching and mentoring. I use a combination of these skills to craft solutions that produce results.
During my 17+ years of experience in information technology, I worked across continents, countries and cultures. Progressed from managing individual projects to driving results for huge enterprise wide software products, services and support projects and multi-continent ERP roll-outs for entire extended supply chains.
I love to see people and teams grow. Coached and mentored associates, fired them up and brought about razor- sharp focus on excellence and created outstanding teams.
With my deep understanding of business drivers, I worked over the years with executives of all levels, assimilating their vision and steering IT portfolios, programs, and projects to achieve targeted business outcomes. Catalyzed several organizational technology and process transitions. Got used to initially hearing “it will not work here” and then leading them to successful completion.
This blog will focus on actionable insights on traditional, agile and lean approaches which managers and leaders can use readily. Apart from my own points of view, I am excited about readers contributing equally good or better insights.
