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.
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.

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!).
