I have achieved many things in work field to which I am proud of. To name a few, I did handled these projects: 1) Y2K Compliant of systems used by my company. 2) Conversion of base currency of systems from GRD to EUR. 3) Setting up systems in a new country for my company. All these I achieved single-hand identifying and setting up my own team by properly guiding them on each and every steps of implementation. Finally, I hand over the whole team to that particular country and exit from there.
Avoiding mistake and connecting right dots
As a leader, I make sure that I am pretty organized and have the basic understanding of products my organization is dealing with. I keep dairy of issues assigned to me and my sub-ordinate. I keep on following up on completion of issued assigned to my sub-ordinate.
Initiative taken by professionals to develop a country
As a professional, we should be dedicated and faithful to our country. We should use the resources available in the country and raise voice, if it require any changes. We should religiously pay the government taxes. Similar to nationalities in other country, if we would have used only AIR INDIA as means of our travel, the airline would not be in juncture of failure. Having said this, we can see success of achieving the status of developed country, if all citizen vows to join together to follow these techniques in their area of expertise.

More about myself

I have the capability to recreate the systems, if there is any crash due to unforeseen circumstances. This is possible only due to vase basic knowledge of systems I possess. I can handle the multiple tasks/systems, which in my absence, the organization needs to recruit one person each for each system to achieve the target requirements.

My thought on education system in India
India's education system is in upto mark. What we study in school or college does not get applied in real life, when we are in job or business. The best way to divert the mind of kids on the subjects which is of interests to them. This would help them to be successful in life at any cost. I have applied this theory on my own kids and see them being nurtured as I expected it to be.
My advice to professionals
Upcoming management leader needs to acquaint themselves with new technology which keeps on changing on a daily basis and find the ways on how to utilize it in the areas of their working.
