As an Agile Coach, I believe that “System Thinking” is needed for a successful agile transformation. It is a way of making sense of the complex situations by looking at it in terms of wholes and relationships rather than a silo approach. It also allows me to ask better questions before jumping to conclusions. During my coaching sessions I try to make a deeper connection with my coachee by practicing empathy and active listening.

SOMETHING ABOUT ME

I am a Principal consultant at PM Power, part of Agile Transformation & Project Management excellence. I help organisations in Agile transformation by adapting various agile frameworks and methods based on the context and enable successful change management.

I have been in the embedded technology space for 24 years, working on cutting-edge R&D in the areas of Consumer Electronics, Display Systems, Semiconductor & Automotive domains. I had the opportunity to work in some of the leading technology companies like Philips, Robert Bosch, Infineon & Harman (a Samsung subsidiary).

I really enjoy working at the intersection of 3Ps (Product, People & Process). I also believe in delivering values, innovation & continuous improvement as key factors for success.

I started my career as a Hardware Engineer in Philips, but later switched my career to Software Testing due to my passion for finding software defects. I was 1st independent software testing engineer in Bosch Car Multimedia, Bangalore and later played several leadership roles in testing, Project Management and Quality assurance.

I have presented papers in various international software testing conferences like QAI STC, STeP-IN forum, QA & Test (Spain). I had the opportunity to lead and transform software delivery teams using various agile frameworks like Scrum & SAFe.

Prior to joining PM Power consulting, I was Director, Delivery and test in Harman for Automotive Digital cockpit and Telematics software solutions. I have played leadership role for delivery management, software testing and supplier delivery management. During this time, I have successfully led two large scale agile transformations in Software platform and Customer programs resulting faster delivery and improved quality. I have also conducted several agile trainings and workshops for scrum masters, product owners and teams.

I am a Certified SAFe® SPC5 Program Consultant, CSM, PSPO, ISTQB Certified Test Manager, Agile Testing & FSCP (ISO 26262). 

Outside my office, I like to spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy listening to music (Carnatic & Western) & reading books on Leadership, Emotional Intelligence & Philosophy.
