I had the opportunity to work in leading multinational, international and Indian companies and to hold senior and top management positions. I was able to build strong alliances with several world majors: NEC, Scientific-Atlanta, Mannesman, and Carl Schenck among others. Strong conceptual skills and focus on execution have helped me turn around loss-making businesses, revitalise old ones and create new streams of revenue.
Knowledge and thought are, I believe, the fountainheads of effective action. That is why I enjoy teaching. I teach an elective course titled Strategic Thinking to post graduate classes in the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad and Bangalore, the top two business schools in India. I have taught the core Strategic Management course In Mudra Institute of Communication Ahmedabad (MICA) and Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM) Bangalore, both premier business schools in India. Teaching helps me learn and keeps me young.
Besides teaching, I write regularly on management and am often invited to speak. I have addressed audiences and conducted workshops for Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM is the premier organisation that represents and sets the tone for public policy for the Indian software industry) and management associations of Bangalore (BMA), Madras (MMA) and Hyderabad (HMA).
My strengths, expertise if you will, are in the following areas.
