Seasoned Agile Program manager and Scrum master

I am a passion-driven professional with 26 years of wearing multiple hats of Agile Project /Program manager/Scrum master/E2E Delivery management and flair for applying project/program management & scrum principles for the successful completion of IT projects within the constraints of agreed scope, budget, timeliness, and quality. • I help businesses bring efforts & cost efficiencies by analyzing "as-is" processes/team dynamics/stakeholder's involvement/ client expectations- etc by managing teams, streamlining communications & status reporting, tracking metrics trends, suggesting course corrections to improve client satisfaction, improve revenue and gross margins. • Specialize in managing teams spread remotely across geographies mostly in US/India/Europe and with optimal overlapping working hrs. • I excel at applying a data-driven strategy for project tracking, monitoring tools like MS Project/JIRA, and making course adjustments for 'go-to-green'. • Effectively drive Scrum ceremonies like Refinement, Planning, Reviews, and Retro. Help teams develop an Agile mindset/culture as per the Agile manifesto in letter & spirit. • Deadlines & metrics-driven and encourage teams to take accountability for their tasks. Help teams to pick user stories using INVEST criteria • Work as a 'servant-leader' to help remove obstacles - people/process/technology/environment/client dependencies etc to name a few • Author project collaterals like estimates, project plan & schedule, FTE walk, and communication plan. • Have a deep sense of understanding of project finances like revenue forecasting, realization, invoicing & profitability. Apply various cost optimization levers to achieve targets. • Expert in authoring various types of project contracts, and deriving associated RAID and R&R matrices. • Using personal influence and communication as a 'servant-leader' to support teams in improving their levels of efficacy and productivity. • In my two-decades-long experiences wearing multiple hats, I have managed over 30 different project teams of engineers (Cloud, Product owners, Scrum masters, Architects, etc) and software developers (Frontend / Backend / Full Stack Developers, QA testers, etc) working with a wide array of technology, tools, and development languages (Java, .Net, Python, Javascript, DevOps, mobile apps, etc). Why choose me? • Vast IT industry experience working in a structured manner supporting Clients of international repute & across domains • Help clients manage both waterfall & Agile scrum projects toward a successful delivery • High standards of integrity, personal effectiveness, and critical thinking • Effective communicator targeting as per the end audience. Liaise between technical teams and management for effective weekly, and monthly & governance reporting • Deep understanding of project/program finances and various cost optimization levers
