I am CJ, seasoned Operational Management consultant with hands on ... moreexperience in to Project Management, Operations Management, Business Analysis, Software Quality Assurance and Business Management. Over the years, I’ve helped many organizations to fine-tune their business plans, derive new strategies to increase the work place satisfaction & the revenues, add varieties to service and product offerings, build extended cross functional teams from the scratch, acquired resources and managed their offshore operations. I've dealt with many business domains including Retail, Asset management, Logistics [including reverse logistics], Market Research, ERP, CRM, Content Management, Social Media, eCommerce, Mass Domain Development and Life Insurance during the past 13 years. Responsible for building datacenters for couple of small to mid size companies focusing internal and external needs. Helped couple of organizations in the past to acquire and manage quality communities and execute targetted social media and email marketing campaigns towards the communities. I've participated in all the phases of SDLC for development of small scale web sites to large scale, distributed, enterprise level applications. As an expert business analyst, I can start with very little details and can elaborate/elicit necessary business requirements within the agreed upon scope to move ahead with the project activities. I am not a traditional business analyst who is stick into producing lengthy business requirements. I do produce business requirements diagrams, wireframes, business scenarios in workflows, suggestions on usability improvements and test data to validate the deliverables. I've helped many organizations to setup their project execution processes covering project management, business analysis, development and testing and helped them to come-up with necessary artifacts to maintain a higher level of visibility to the stake holders and the project team members. I am an expert in process methodologies and helped couple of local and foreign companies to obtain ISO 9000 series and CMMi level 3/4 certifications with less hassle. Do have the access to a mini test lab with cross browsers and three of the main operating systems. Apart from that, my test lab has the access to an internal document management system plus a bug tracker to help any of my clients. My QA service offerings include but not limited to testing, test case preparation, planning various test techniques and strategies and improving the quality. Apart from that I can contribute towards organizational goals such as implementing TQM standards. I've prepared many test plans, requirement specs; use case documents, test reports and test cases. I've achieved many milestones during the last 10 years naming; 1. Helped a NY, US based retail solution provider to identify the test scope for their third generation POS and Asset Management solution (After having a thorough analysis, managed to reduce the regression scenarios to 300 from 12000 odd bugs from their issue tracker. I helped them to generate regression and acceptance scenarios covering all the business cases and day-to-day and special transactions). 2. Initiated the testing practices at Cambridge, UK based software service provider. I implemented a CMMI level 3 ready process using agile practices. 3. Initiated the testing practices at US based hosted service provider and expand the team to 7 members covering three product platforms. Setup a CMMI level 3 ready process using agile SCRUM practices and reduced the bug count to .1 for KLOC. I brought down the critical or high priority issues on a UAT To 0. 4. Managed to analyze the V 1.2 of a large, enterprise scale logistics solution and prepared a 600 pages long requirement spec for the V 2.0 with major feature and performance enhancement requirements. 5. Managed to test three RIA applications focusing logistics, ERP/CRM and supply chain management. 6. Brought in Seattle, WA based software solutions provider to the local market (worked with their Director, Technology in terms of setting up the operations), convince them on the capabilities and growing the initial headcount of 3 to 33 in 18 months (budget grows to 4000 US$ to 40000 US$ a month). 7. In 2007, I was instrumental for relocating a large help-desk operation (a distributed operation) to Sri Lanka and managing the operations. We were suppose to attend nearly 12,000 help-desk queries a week and I was responsible for hiring, training and managing the 24 x 7 operations from Colombo. Currently I am based in Colombo, Sri Lanka. This is a fantastic place to setup offshore operations as it’s blessed with quality and cost effective resources compared to many outsourcing destinations. less
