Professionals trained on Agile, DevOps

To be successful high performing individuals or teams, focus on just two things:

-Time discipline

  • Focus on short goals, even if there are delays in starting something, ensure the finish is on time
  • Follow the three-bucket principle: Me Time, Team Time and Organization time

– Data discipline

  • Use data as a mirror for the persons generating the data
  • Use data to improve continually”


I am the Practice Lead for PM Power’s Business Excellence, Knowledge Management and Technology adoption suite of services as part of our Business Excellence and Competency Development services. I help individuals, teams and organizations on their paths towards excellence.

Helping them understand, internalize and adopt good practices related to Agile, DevOps, Knowledge Management as well as tools adoption has given me great professional satisfaction over the years.

I started my career in 1980 with Tata Burroughs as a trainee and over the following 15 years, held various roles of tech lead, project manager, delivery manager and business manager, including setting up new business lines and growing them, in the areas of BFSI, Retail and core technology

I was then part of a start-up – long before the term start-up was fashionable – building an appliance [embedded software] for enterprise data management and a solution framework for the private equity industry.

As a delivery head in the Capital Markets Division, I also launched and grew the services business in the Asset Management micro vertical, before taking up a corporate role to drive Engineering Excellence across the organization at HCL Technologies.

While I enjoy reading, listening to music and trekking, I find children a source of inspiration for learning.
