I had the pleasure to work with Venk during a Lean Innovation Champion training I performed in our ASSA ABLOY HID software development center in Chennai India.

He was part of the group I trained and he immediately took the informal lead in driving the different training workshops and also support me as a trainer. In this I appreciated his coaching skills, using the modern natural way of leading which we embrace in our Lean Innovation approach. He also took a natural lead in progressing the team to certification.

He has a solid background in using Agile/Scrum methodologies in software development and with that his input was very valuable for our approach that includes also mechanical and electronic development. It proved to work very well which helped me in developing our approach further.

He showed and proved skills and results and with that qualified to get the champion certificate, and he is one of few I have met during my trainings that has this deep understanding of both the mechanics in agile/scrum and also the people part of it.

Venkatesh was an Agile mentor + Manager for our Scrum teams of which I was a Technical lead.
He delivered tangible positive results practically from Day 1. From my experience, I can say his expertise and passion towards Scrum and Agile methodologies are unmatched. He led numerous efforts to begin multiple CoP’s and provided workshops for Lean innovation and helped team progress on their Agile Journey.

He is also one of the few who values the people aspect of an agile transformation. His underlying message was always focused on individual growth and in the process taking teams and organizations upward.

Needless to say, I benefited from his interactions greatly and looking forward to interact in future if I had a chance.

If a company is looking to jump start its Agile transformation, educate/train its staff or coach an existing Agile framework, I would highly recommend him in a heartbeat.

I had a privilege to work with Venkat in HID Global’s R&D centre in Chennai (where he was designated as Engineering Manager as well as Agile Coach). Right from the day one, he was very focussed on setting up the Agile environment in the centre and took various initiatives to bring agility into the teams. He challenged himself to bring in the Agile transformation in short span of time, as a result within in 6 months the team started to became self organised and aligned towards org goal.

He is an expert in providing the KPI’s and metrics to gauge the performance at the team level as well as at the site level. The initiatives and background efforts he took to drive the Lean Innovation Campion Programme (Inter Org championship programme) was acknowledged and recognised by the leadership team of HID. He removed various hurdles of the engineering team by adapting feasible engineering practices (Devops, CI/CD, cloud tools etc) resulted in increased efficiency, transparency, communication and collaboration across the board.

His hunger to pursue more on Agile made him to attend/conduct various workshops and constantly collaborate with the experts of the field. Consistent efforts in the long course of time helped him to embark his identify as Professional Scrum Trainer – one of the prestigious badge from Scrum Org.

He is an excellent mentor in the field of Agile & SCRUM. I have witnessed many aspiring candidates getting mentored under him. Now that he is officially designated by renowned orgs of AGILE, expecting him to conduct more workshops and meet ups to evangelise agile and scrum.

Any org/startup/enterprise looking for agile transformation agents, I would vouch and recommend Venkat for such assignments.

I admired his accent and proficiently. I have seen him he learnt the latest trends in technology and industry. We were cab mates as well, we spent a good amount of our commute time together and we spoke about next Gen always.

Thanks is not enough Venkat !!!

Hema Chandra Mohan,
Capgemini Global Services Pvt Ltd( Manager )

One of the best trainings I had. The method followed to explain and exercises are very unique and complementary. Trainer has a sound knowledge of the content and covered a few out of topics items, which usually a trainer will avoid since he/she wouldn’t get any extra, like conversational mastery, resourceful tips etc…

Any thoughtful SM aspirant would pick PSM over CSM, likewise I recommend Venkat over any other as a trainer.

Parthasarathy Vijayan,

I took PSM I & PSPO I training from Venkat and cleared both. The training sessions were really effective as me and my batchmates learned a lot from it, especially from Venkat’s real time examples. I’d like to recommend Venkat to anyone who is planning to take Scrum training.

Venkatesh is a true pro in scrum. The clarity with which he teaches the concepts even when put through insanely confusing questions ( mostly by me ) is really commendable.This really helped me understand scrum in it’s true sense. His focus on activity oriented teaching and subtly imbibing the nuances of scrum by involving the trainees in his sessions are his strong forte. Thank you Venkat !!

Subhasri V,

Venkat – Man with abundant knowledge! I was into agile ways of working for three plus years before I met him in an agile training, it felt like there are much more for me to unearth in that space after that! Completely changed my perspective towards agile ways of working! It is agility that matters!

I am lucky to have him as a mentor! He always had time to do things – Be it doing his day 2 day job, mentoring people outside of work, his Scrum.Org trainings, achieving professional life goals, Time spent for his family etc. Always had a plan of action for his continuous learning!

He has such clarity in agile concepts! Name it he would make you learn and understand! His PSM class is a class apart from other scrum trainings! It had lot of real time flavors added! If anyone who is a starter in Agile would recommend to take his classes! Also to understand much more than that keep in touch with him always, he will take you places in understanding the agile ways of working!
