I have a rich experience of more than 10 years in managing projects, implementing processes and performing quality assurance in the IT sector.

Drawing frameworks for processes that would best suit the company/projects as per their given requirements, implementing the same with documentation is one of my forte'. Currently, I am designing and implementing framework according to ITIL for an IT department of a logistics company through Odesk. The client I am working for is based in LA, California and has worked on a one year old project with me earlier. They signed another contract with me after their successful SaaS based product implementation done by me, which was carried out according to PMP. It was a large scale outsourcing project in terms of cost.  less

    - Sr. Project / Program Manager / Scrum Master - Sr. Business Consultant After years of experience in Management in both the Software Development and IT industry, I want to expand my horizon at my level of expertise. I'm more geared towards management of technical staff and/or projects. In this setting I have experience in a lot of different specialties (QA, Customer Support, Web Development, Development, IT, Production, Client Management, and others). I'm comfortable in a lot of environments, but I like to be able to use my own management style that is more aimed in managing through positive experiences, openness and coaching and training. I'm definitely not a supporter/believer of managing with an iron fist. My main aim is always to create a positive and productive environment in which people can feel happy and flourish, as opposed to being stressed and strained. I learn quickly and I'm flexible and precise in my work. I have experience with multiple cultures and am a good communicator.
