It was nice to see “Thank you Note” from Agile Network India. 👌

It was an interesting panel discussion with eminent panelists (Sandhya Vasudevan and Ashutosh Dabral) and moderated by Yashasree Barve.

I have been speaker/panelist 🎤of Agile Network India conferences multiple time and I have thoroughly enjoyed taking part as a speaker/panelist due to two reasons

1 – Unique topics
2 – Well organized

Kudos 👍 to Priyank DK PathakNoopur PathakPrashant M J and team for advocating Agile mindset through such conferences and webinars.

Hall of Fame Award

It was a ✨Happiest✨ and Proudest moment of my life as my project won TWO prestigious awards at the organisation level (Intellect Design Arena Ltd)

🔹 – HALL OF FAME Award – This pioneering award category, announced from the current year for the project that has created biggest impact on customer and organization perspective because of successful project delivery. And I am proud and humbled that they declared my project as the winner of this award – ONLY One project in the company.

🔹- D-3 OTIF Excellence award – This award is given to the project that demonstrates delivery excellence in the project execution. This is second time I have received this award because of the excellence in the project execution.

This achievement was simply impossible without team who has unwavering trust, faith and confidence in my project management capability. And of course leadership team who has been supportive, all the time while guiding me on critical junctures. Thanks to Design Thinking Culture imbibed into the organisation..

I have won few awards in past at Intellect, but I am really humbled by receiving TWO prestigious awards at the organization level in a single year where many projects competed from several LOBs, geography and office locations.

Thank God for showering the blessings on us. Thanks to my family for providing unflinching support in my professional journey.

My team is one of the best project team – Nizamuddin Shaikh Prasad Narra Trupti bhambid Ashok Vedartham Jaya Wadhwani Shashikant amin Nishtha Ahuja Sushanta Majhi among others

The Great Resignation

“The Great Resignation” Period!!! 🎆

Yes, most of us are encountering this in our organization (primarily software/IT) as attrition has increased by 100% reaching through roof up to 40% to 50%. The stories of employees having multiple offers in hand and backing out on joining day are like the expected phenomenon for 5 out of 10 candidates. Not to mention new joiners absconding in less than month’s time…

Practical Strategies to Retain Employees The average cost of replacing an employee is 21% of current salary. That shows the margin impact on the companies..
