Specialises In

First code - Hello world program in 1989 - Last code - 1998, Neural network learning in C++ for my Engineering thesis (my grades warned me to desist).

Eighteen years of varied experience - in project management in petrochemical/manufacturing, implementing enterprise software/CRM, architecting , Super fast web apps, and Business consulting, leading large delivery organizations with scaled agility and now finally working as an Agile coach in one of the largest organization.

Chemical Engineer from IIT Madras. MBA from IIM Calcutta.

When not working, you'd find me reading, swimming, doing crosswords, playing guitar/chess/bridge/flute, playing with a DSLR and my twin kids - have a strong interest in people/sociology, history, economics, psychology, physics, mathematics and the mountains.

Extremely passionate about technology and Agile. Come years of academic and vocational interests in multiple disciplines that make Agile, in my opinion, truly a Theory of Everything, viz. Operations research (Lean, six-sigma, MRP, TOC), Economics (Classical & behavioural), Psychology, Leadership and Organizational learning, Mathematics/Statistics, Evolutionary biology etc.

My particular focus in Agile has been on culture, organizationl learning, systems thinking, product management & design thinking and gamification. Have been focussing on complexity, captology & cognitive science in the past few years.

Done a lot of trainings and workshops around Agile and systems thinking themes. Not been much of a presenter (a few talks below), though started being a regular at conferences, as an over-zealous hounding the speaker with too many questions - now, taking a bold step and preparing to face people like me, while standing on the stage.
