Multidisciplinary Consulting Expert with Fortune 1...

Sri Lanka - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 92 - Portfolio: 5

HOURLY PROJECTS ONLY, Please! And no time wasters too, please! I work ONLY with clients that have both a professional attitude as well as a prompt payment ability. Hi: Thank you for taking a few moments to glance over my oDesk profile. I possess an excellent command of English (it happens to be my native language!), verifiable accredited U.S. qualifications, authentic Fortune 10/100 work experience, as well as a powerful portfolio of specializations, skills, experience, and capabilities. Although I've passed over 90 oDesk tests and more than 27 Brainbench tests, I regularly add new skills to my portfolio. AREAS OF EXPERTISE: Advanced Project, Program and Portfolio Management (SCPM - Stanford) Business Consulting - Leadership, Management, and Technnological Management of technology Organizational Behavior Organization Design General Management Business Analysis Systems Analysis Marketing: Penetration of new market segments Design of Tests and Examinations - including Psychometric Evaluation Quality Management (CMQ/OE: ASQ Certified Manager of Quality / Organizational Excellence) Quality Engineering (CQE: ASQ Certified Quality Engineer) Software Quality Assurance (CSQE: ASQ Certified software Quality Engineer) CMMI ISO 9001, SPICE, TickIT and other Quality Standards SDLC / Agile Software Development Methodologies Software Technologies and Development Environments Multidisciplinary Training - Individual and Groups GRE and GMAT Examinations Coaching I have a working knowledge of a broad range of software across a wide range of industry segments (general management, international quality systems standards formulation, market penetration, manufacturing, financial services, customer service, training, software development, systems implementation, systems analysis, systems certification and accreditation), together with primary and secondary research capabilities. As far back as 1994, I designed, developed and successfully implemented across several sites, a Refinanced Loan Management System (RLMS) while serving as the joint Management Information Systems Expert and Computer systems Specialist for the SFLCP project funded by the International Fund for Agriculture of the United Nations (UN / IFAD) and the Canadian International Development Agency. During the relatively short period of July 1996 to September 1997, I designed, developed, and successfully implemented what was probably the world's first ISO 9001-compliant Quality Management System that allowed new technology platforms to be added without the need for immediate re-certification. What all this means to you is that you finally have the ability to economically hire someone who is quite comfortable delving into even the smallest details while simultaneously monitoring the "big picture," ensuring you get the most from whatever your assignment requires. Of course, I prefer to work with clients who look forward to taking their companies to the next level in terms of performance, profitability, as well as corporate responsibility. Stay tuned for new skills, technologies and achievements that I will be adding to my portfolio in the very near future. Sincerely, Prasanna L.L.

UPDATE: After recently completing a lengthy real-world project that required an exhausting commitment of all my available time, I have returned to my favorite freelance site in search of writing projects that I can concentrate all my skills and attention on. Writing is a passion of mine, one that has consumed a significant percentage of my life. I count myself truly fortunate that my passion is also my profession. I've worked hard to gain and maintain the highest levels of artistic quality and integrity across a variety of writing disciplines, but I've worked even harder to ensure 100% satisfaction for every one of my clients. My clients have come to expect a higher standard of writing from me, and I am only too happy to deliver a product that exceeds their expectations. I am fully committed to the excellence of my craft as a means of ensuring not only my personal success but that of my clients' projects as well. Thank you.

United States - Last active: 04/04/2014 - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 3

I bring a wide and deep body of experience to the table. It is centered around communication and community. Over the past decade, I’ve fostered communication between businesses, governments and political campaigns, and the communities of which they wanted to be a part. I’ve also used communication to build new communities and reform existing ones. • In my current consultancy business, I’ve specialized in bringing new social media sites from development to deployment. This requires serving as a bridge between senior management, marketers, IT staff, lawyers and the general public, despite the different priorities and backgrounds of each group. As to the public, the job is sociology, programming and marketing rolled into one. To top it off, it requires crafting a human and accessible public persona for the institution that’s sponsoring the new site. • As Community Manager at Yahoo, I helped to build a loyal audience for Yahoo Answers and My Web, two strategically important products in which users build the content. The quality of these products hinges on the quality of their users, and it was my job to retain those users. • As Communications Coordinator for the Mayor of the City of St. Louis, I wrote the speeches and articles that enabled him to reach out to a diverse electorate, crossing racial, economic and ethnic lines. • As a public liaison and campaign manager, I've spent my days with those people, answering tough questions in such a way that every answer built a specific image. • As an executive in two web development firms, I built products for a variety of institutional and professional clients. Not technically inclined themselves, they relied upon me to serve as a bridge between the engineers and themselves. In all of these fields, I've been able to draw upon a wide fund of knowledge and skills. My legal education (J.D., Vanderbilt, 1995) provided me with the research skills, organizational ability and techniques needed to navigate complex organizations and complicated projects with strict deadlines.
