Usha Srikanth’s recent appointment as the Vice President of Approva’s product engineering division facilitated her move to Pune. The city has long been in her scheme of things since it has a large number of homes for differently abled children, whom she loves to work with, besides being her husband’s residence.

Having had stints at HP, Agilent, and EDS, Usha says, “Whatever I have achieved and all my experiences add up to what I am today.”

She believes that 80 percent of the product line is a result of not innovation itself but meeting customer requirements. “Indian engineers get disturbed when their ideas are not taken. They must understand that ideas are implemented based on the customers’ needs,” she says.
