Skills

Having gained extensive experience in diverse challenging projects, I learnt to apply and combine as necessary the best fit techniques from the traditional and agile project management toolsets.
With this pragmatic approach and excellent interpersonal skills, I could break complex requirements into tangible pieces, planning and tracking the work, managing risk and issues while motivating a team for smooth collaboration which is the heart of achieving project goals in our ever–changing world.
