“As a coach, I believe story-telling is very important – even in such serious topics like Program and Delivery Management. When I create stories that are very contextual for the learners, it is that much more effective and fun (for me as well!)”

SOMETHING ABOUT ME

Before I walk you through my professional life, let me tell you some fun facts about myself! One, I am a movie buff- I have seen Casablanca, Psycho, Sholay etc. more than a dozen times and I love Peter Sellers, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hanks, and Julia Roberts. Two, I revel in food adventurism – trying the exotic in many lands!

Here’s what I have been doing apart from watching movies and trying exotic food! As a Principal Consultant at PM Power I am involved in many offerings for competency development of Project Managers and Delivery Managers.

I started my career in Tata Burroughs Limited, Mumbai as a software engineer and moved on to leadership positions in software delivery management.

Subsequently, I worked for the ANZ Banking Group and led the growth of its captive software products and services organization in Bangalore supporting ANZ operations in multiple geographies; USA, UK, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

After ANZ, I moved to iGATE to head the delivery operations, I set up and managed large Offshore Development Centres (ODCS) for US and UK-based conglomerates in electronics retail, manufacturing and software product development.

I have been involved in the academic world as adjunct faculty delivering full semester courses for MBA students. My larger goal is to help customers become learning organizations.

One more fun fact at the top of my head to finish my write up with- In school, I played kabbadi with gusto, given my king size advantage – till I tore a knee ligament! I toyed briefly with cricket – till I got kicked out since the rival team bowlers kept complaining to the umpire that when I batted, they could not make out where the stumps were (I am still referred to as “Big Shiv” – in school days, the adjective was somewhat less flattering!).
