SOMETHING ABOUT ME
I am a principal consultant and am responsible for designing and developing services in the areas of Project Management and Delivery Excellence.
I started my career as a software development engineer at Tata Motors in 1981 and progressed through multiple responsibilities covering all aspects of software engineering and project execution. I spent more than 13 years in Australia working for multiple organizations in banking, education and association management domains managing software projects and IT organizations.

I headed the delivery and quality functions and took the company to CMMI Level 5 during my stint.

During my period, I managed deployment of IT Service Management processes and Agile practices in GIC and was part of the IT Leadership team in India.
