Technical Design Lead / Scrum Master at British Airways (client of NIIT Technologies)
May 2009-March 2011
My Agile journey started in May 2009 while working as Technical Design Lead in British Airways. I started my first Agile project that time and we were supported by an external Agile consulting through a 4 week enablement program. Though technology was my first passion till then, I immediately found my passion towards Agile & Scrum method. We delivered multiple projects required by business to achieve its strategic and business goals using Agile & Scrum.We soon expanded the adoption of Agile methds to support & maintenance projects and then across onshore-offshore delivery model as well. I was part of an Agile community within British Airways and delivered a number of Agile overview sessions and enabled other teams in Agile transition while also delivering Scrum Master sessions to other project managers, project leads.
