Background & Work Experience
I bring a sincere desire to help people and strengthen relationships to my work as a part of Agile Transformations. I aim to meet essential scrum ideals and principles, pursue and promote its mission and establish a community people love to be a part of.
I have been assisting companies in making workplaces better by enhancing the humanity within them and helping people reach their goals.
I was responsible for process quality assurance for billion-dollar transformational initiatives.
I have also held positions of process quality consultant in CMMI and ISO doing harmonising process operations for customers, including the implementation of quality programmes in Hi-tech, Retail, Media, and Publishing. I assisted in North America, Europe, and the rest of the world.
I have combined my passion for leadership coaching with a focus on agile principles. It’s exciting to see how the various parts of our business connect during our transition and to communicate the agile community, which includes folks in every corner of the country and abroad.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering from JNTU, Hyderabad. I am a ravenous reader, a devoted SCRUM supporter, and a staunch proponent of the agile manifesto.
I have worked with numerous international customers, including EMI Music, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, KANTAR, Intel, Microsoft, FedEx, Volvo Cars, IKEA, Google, and Boeing.
I am also a Professional Coach.
I coach leaders to live their lives with purpose and integrity. I offer individualised sessions to help my customers accomplish their own personal and professional goals. I encourage corporate executives and business owners to know themselves and progress via self-discovery.
What I do
I love to help people, teams, and companies become better at delivering high-quality software products and services.
I am a practical person who desires to make the world a little better. I strive to use things, share my experiences, and help others learn.
In my workshops and training sessions, I work to encourage people to adopt agile work practises, as well as making retrospectives beneficial.
“People are powerful, so the things that start with ‘self’ get me excited.” the processes of self-organization, self-assessment, self-awareness, and self-development.
Personally, I enjoy both trying out new techniques and taking a look at existing ones, as I use these tools to better myself and become a better leader.
Agile Coaching Tools
The more people that I connect with, the more they want to learn about and better themselves as developers and service providers. But helping everyone on-site in person is simply not possible for me.
That’s why I embarked on my own “agile scaling and digitalization” journey by sharing game, exercise, and other agile coaching tools that I use in my workshops and transformation exercises on this blog.
This journey of scaling and sharing the agile nuances makes me eat my own dog food. I implement what I teach, advice, and coaching around being agile. I am learning what my customers want, how they use my agile coaching tools, and the benefits they bring.
I utilise Kanban, Lean, and Scrum principles to manage everything I do.
What is BLUEAGILE ?
This is my personal blogging platform where I share my thoughts and experiences on the agile and digital transformations through which I have gone. I’m a leadership coach and work with people to maximise their potential.
Join me as I document my experiences from multiple process frameworks, agile and digital transformations, team and leadership coaching insights from some of the complex and large transformations that i have been a part of. I truly hope my images and writing inspire you to start your own journey.
WHY THE NAME – BLUE AGILE for a Blog?
Inline with the Blue ocean strategy , Blue Agile is the simultaneous pursuit of differentiation and low cost to open up a new market space and create new demand.
It is about exploring the uncontested market space, thereby making the competition irrelevant. It is based on the view that market boundaries and industry structure are not a given and can be reconstructed by the actions and beliefs of industry players.
Blue Oceans, in contrast, denote all the industries not in existence today – the unknown market space, untainted by competition. In blue oceans, demand is created rather than fought over. There is ample opportunity for growth that is both profitable and rapid.
In blue oceans, competition is irrelevant because the rules of the game are waiting to be set. A blue ocean is an analogy to describe the wider, deeper potential to be found in unexplored market space. A blue ocean is vast, deep, and powerful in terms of knowledge growth.
I am presently working with NEWS CORP as an Agile Coach.
