Views about 'Tech product Introduction is weak among Indians'
Well!!!. This is not a fact that we are not making tec. products. We have quite good product e.g Mobiles (Spice. Karbon, Lava Etc.) but beside the fact they are good, still they are not such populer due to our own set of mentality and adoptions of products.
On the other hand all foreign products have Indian minds behind, to be a fact that lots of Indians are working in MNC like Microsoft, Dell, NASA etc.
Our govt. have to attract youth with growing up market strategies and Job availabilities in Indian IT sector. We have enormous talent in the field but migrating outside in search of better opportunity and life style.
My important career decision
Being from a family of Doctors and lawyers. I have decided to make my carried in IT. That was my first decision to move out of track.
After few years of my carrier upgraded myself and started moving from core technical to IT-Operations and Project management.
Making job easier
Its a two way approach for your work. Being proactive rather being reactive. and having good relations among the staff and clients. it makes your work life easy and give you a better view of the challenges and hurdles on the way. It also matter to keep you updated with the surroundings .
Family Background
I have a Caring, Charming and understanding Wife Arti and a 19 month Baby boy Aarush.
Challenges faced in job
Currently as being on a role of Regional manager for all IT Operations for East Africa. its very challenging to understand the team off-shore. due to wast cultural diversity, different mindsets and different work culture. conflict of mindsets is a major challenge in running operations in Africa region.
But it would be a great learning for me and to understand the different cultures across Africa. Travelled to countries which gave me enormous exposure of Native African life style and mindsets.
My role model
Well I don't have a stipulated Roll model. But My Father is always a roll model for me as I learnt from him "How to stand alone" if no one is with you.
My achievement
I have been selected as the best student from my batch. while my Diploma of Electronics engineering. That was valuable for me as I have proved my family that there is a world apart from Doctorate and Education.
last year I have been recognized for Individual leadership award By Maraison also valuable for me as I have managed to learn the difference in work culture and drove the team accordingly to get the task completion on time.
Current Trends
As Managed Services is booming UP with strategic Outsourcing. This model is getting popular overseas. esp. in PAN africa and other continents after getting a huge success in Asia.
This is going to be a game changer and also attract IT companies to core domains e.g. telecom, banking, Hospital sector.
Being a hub of IT India has a great advantage and capabilities to explore outside continent with a huge market value.
My strongest Skill
1. Strategic planning.
2. Operation.
3. Client interaction, P.R.
4. Team building and driving.
5. Business Continuity.
6. Leading overseas team, with minimum interaction.
Goals and Ambitions
