I am an innovative team leader with extensive exposure in quality assurance. I am very optimistic and can work effectively with multiple teams. I have strong interpersonal skills, efficient planning and organizational skills and a robust commitment. I have led Indian and Nepalese, multi-vendor teams of 10 members to successful project delivery at multiple instances in a fast-paced environment of a consulting firm (PwC). I foster innovation by means of tool development that helps in process and quality improvement. After having more than 5 years of enriching experience in leading Consulting and IT giants, I decided to pursue MBA in order to have a holistic view on businesses all around the world, to hone my business acumen and to form a strong peer network.
