Over the past 14 years, I have successfully combined business, technology and management skills to deliver useful and usable software:

• Engineering Manager and Team Lead (Team sizes from 3 to 10)

Some highlights of my Business Leadership experience:

• Managed 100+ major and minor releases, with global cross-functional teams involving UX, Marketing, Products, Product Marketing, Professional Services, Customer Support, Documentation, QA and Engineering.
• Delivered Applications ranging from hosted to shrink-wrap in business domains ranging from Analytics to Content Management to EMR to Portals and Financial Services.
• Effectively worked as Product Owner with Management stakeholders ranging from Sales, Marketing, Compliance, Products, Customer Support and Engineering to strategize goals, gather requirements, provide visibility and resolve issues/impediments.
• Delivered regular management updates/presentations using Portfolio and Program Dashboards.
• Worked closely with Development to iteratively implement usable, useful and high value Product features.
• Mentored Developers, Product Owners and Project Managers, provided career guidance and Program-level support.
• Defined, implemented and evolved the end-to-end Agile SDLC from Ideation through Maintenance.
• Helped enable delivery efficiencies from 100 - 300% across various Products/Teams by collaborating with cross-functional teams to reduce waste, improve quality and by encouraging ownership and teamwork.

I believe that great companies build just the right software efficiently that satisfies the customer.
