    Consultant/Human Resource Solutions/Project Manager

    Philippines - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 20

    Problem solving, results based strategy. As a contractor, I am very reliable, fast and efficient. I go out of my way to solve challenges and to overcome difficulties that may come my way. I have a stable internet connection, quiet place to work and time flexibility. I can help out any business in more ways than one. In a fast-paced generation like what we have now, everyone needs to adapt to keep up, this is what I am here for, to make you and your business adapt and keep up, to thrive to excellence and success by realizing your potential through carefully planned strategies and framework for your business model. I take pride in my ability to conceptualize ideas from thin air, eliminate challenges, create market channels where current players have yet to notice and build mutually beneficial partnerships with companies that has seemingly different markets but share common goals. I work around the framework of S.A.V.E the new marketing mix. Solution based instead of Product based focus; Accessibility instead of Place; Value instead of Price; Education instead of Promotion. I believe market trends and technology may develop overtime but the basic Psyche of the society and collective state of mind constantly drives the market to move. Keys to success of every marketing campaign are Knowledge, Unique Selling Proposition and Accounts management. In a nutshell, if you plan to build a company, the first step is to establish your own core competencies, core values, human resource management style, financial status and operations management plan. Although it is vital to learn about market share competitors hold, these are only outside factors that can be used to gauge your starting position. However, it should not dictate you on your decisions concerning your company. Instead, you may utilize this knowledge to motivate yourself in overcoming the challenges ahead. While market research paints you a good picture (of the competition), it will not give you the 360 degree view you expect see especially if the study focused mostly on trends and market saturation. Start ups do not recognize their full potential early on because more often than not, owners rely heavily on competitor data comparison. My role is to make you realize potential market channels by either suggesting ideas or creating possible scenarios geared towards the desired result thus maximizing profits with little to no competition. Data analyzation keeps most of us sane. It points us to a safe path that will shield us from potential pitfall. On the other hand, that shield blurs our vision. These outside factors may hinder you from seeing what is actually there because everyone is busy looking at the same direction, no one bothered to look elsewhere. Before you invest on business, ask yourself these questions: 1. Am I interested in this industry? 2. Would it be something I could still see myself doing 5 years from now? 3. Where am I standing now and where do I want to go? 4. Do I have the guts to lose all my investment? 5. Is the risk worth the potential profit? After you answer most of these questions, you can proceed in spending your resources for comprehensive market research including past trends and history. You would be saving precious time, money and effort by simply assessing yourself first rather than gathering data that could overwhelm you and point you towards a different outcome. Each of us posses our own inner personal advisor, we have to recognize the inner voice. Ultimately it will still depend on how you interpret it and in what state of mind you are in that would make or break the deal for you. Thank you very much for taking the time to give my profile your undivided attention. I hope you make the right decisions and I wish you all the best!

    Multidisciplinary Consulting Expert with Fortune 10 Experience

    Sri Lanka - Last active: 12 days ago - Tests: 92 - Portfolio: 5

    HOURLY PROJECTS ONLY, Please! And no time wasters too, please! I work ONLY with clients that have both a professional attitude as well as a prompt payment ability. Hi: Thank you for taking a few moments to glance over my oDesk profile. I possess an excellent command of English (it happens to be my native language!), verifiable accredited U.S. qualifications, authentic Fortune 10/100 work experience, as well as a powerful portfolio of specializations, skills, experience, and capabilities. Although I've passed over 90 oDesk tests and more than 27 Brainbench tests, I regularly add new skills to my portfolio. AREAS OF EXPERTISE: Advanced Project, Program and Portfolio Management (SCPM - Stanford) Business Consulting - Leadership, Management, and Technnological Management of technology Organizational Behavior Organization Design General Management Business Analysis Systems Analysis Marketing: Penetration of new market segments Design of Tests and Examinations - including Psychometric Evaluation Quality Management (CMQ/OE: ASQ Certified Manager of Quality / Organizational Excellence) Quality Engineering (CQE: ASQ Certified Quality Engineer) Software Quality Assurance (CSQE: ASQ Certified software Quality Engineer) CMMI ISO 9001, SPICE, TickIT and other Quality Standards SDLC / Agile Software Development Methodologies Software Technologies and Development Environments Multidisciplinary Training - Individual and Groups GRE and GMAT Examinations Coaching I have a working knowledge of a broad range of software across a wide range of industry segments (general management, international quality systems standards formulation, market penetration, manufacturing, financial services, customer service, training, software development, systems implementation, systems analysis, systems certification and accreditation), together with primary and secondary research capabilities. As far back as 1994, I designed, developed and successfully implemented across several sites, a Refinanced Loan Management System (RLMS) while serving as the joint Management Information Systems Expert and Computer systems Specialist for the SFLCP project funded by the International Fund for Agriculture of the United Nations (UN / IFAD) and the Canadian International Development Agency. During the relatively short period of July 1996 to September 1997, I designed, developed, and successfully implemented what was probably the world's first ISO 9001-compliant Quality Management System that allowed new technology platforms to be added without the need for immediate re-certification. What all this means to you is that you finally have the ability to economically hire someone who is quite comfortable delving into even the smallest details while simultaneously monitoring the "big picture," ensuring you get the most from whatever your assignment requires. Of course, I prefer to work with clients who look forward to taking their companies to the next level in terms of performance, profitability, as well as corporate responsibility. Stay tuned for new skills, technologies and achievements that I will be adding to my portfolio in the very near future. Sincerely, Prasanna L.L.
