IIT Bombay

I had the distinct privilege of conducting mock interviews for the final semester students of the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. ๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿซ

Engaging in this endeavor proved to be a significant and gratifying experience, as I devoted my Saturday to actively participate in shaping the trajectory of prospective trailblazers while also giving back to our society. Each student was having an exceptionally commendable resume, a fact that did not go unnoticed. I would have dreamt of such resumes during my college days.

The opportunity to engage with the most exceptional young minds in disciplines such as chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, and MTech was nothing less than an enriching experience. During these interactions and feedback sessions, I had the privilege to share insights gained from an employer’s perspective, focusing on strategies for effective presentation during real-world interviews.

I hold a profound sense of gratitude for the chance to provide guidance to these ambitious IITians, aiding them in their meticulous career preparations.

Fun fact ๐Ÿ˜Š- I was not even aware of IIT when I completed by 10+2.

Introduction to PMP Certification

It was a pleasure ๐Ÿ˜Š conducting another session at CRISIL Limited about “Introduction to PMP Certification”.

In my first session (Introduction to Project Management) at CRISIL, around 200+ CRISILtes joined. The session was well-received. However, due to the paucity of time, we could not cover details about how to start the journey toward PMP certification.

In this follow-up session, I covered about nuances of PMP certification, starting from PMI membership, required training, education, experiences, application, exam fees, etc. Only serious PMs joined the session and got good in-depth knowledge about PMP certification.
Already few managers have either undergone formal training or planning to take up PMP training to become PMP-certified project managers.

It’s my way of giving back to the society!!!!

Looking forward to helping all those out there to take up Project Management as a valued profession and career choice.

State of the CIO Survey

๐Ÿ’ก68% of CIOs say that creating new revenue-generating initiatives is among their job responsibilities, according to CIOs “State of the CIO Survey”.

The top activities that CIOs are engaging in themselves are as mentioned in the image below. While automation is top of the CIOs list for a few years, it seems that after moving to the cloud and creating LCNC platforms, CIOs are moving towards deploying advanced technology to take advantage of platforms they have created.

CIOs who are driving new revenue are:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Delivering technologies designed to meet specific business outcomes
๐Ÿ‘‰ Unlocking dataโ€™s potential
๐Ÿ‘‰ Co-creating with their business unit colleagues.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Embedding themselves in the business.
