DIGITAL & TECHNOLOGY GUIDING PRINCIPLES
General Guiding Principles
I aim to provide maximum long-term benefits to the enterprise as a whole while optimizing total costs of ownership and Business risks. Solutions must aim to maximize the cumulative business benefits over their entire lifecycle.
Always maintain capability levels and create solutions that are fit for purpose without over-engineering them.
Always choose the simplest solutions and aim to reduce operational complexity of the enterprise.
First Maximize reuse of existing Assets. If can’t reuse, procure externally. At the last option, build custom solutions.
Handle data creation, modification, and use enterprise wide in compliance with our data governance policy.
Always control the variety of technology platforms are in use.
Always manage security enterprise wide in compliance with our Security Governance policy and Information Security Board Recommendations.
Operate in Compliance with all applicable laws and regulations in the Country and external where applicable.
Always seek innovative ways to use technology for business advantage and Transformation.
Deliver best experiences to our customers with our services and products.
ITIL Guiding Principles
Everything the organization does should link back, directly or indirectly, to value for itself, its Customers and other Stakeholders.
▪ Know how consumers use each service.
▪ Encourage a focus on value among all staff.
▪ Focus on value during operational activity as well during improvement initiatives.
▪ Include a focus on value in every step of any improvement initiative.
When engaged in any improvement initiative, do NOT start over without first considering what is already available to be leveraged.
Working in a time-boxed, iterative manner with feedback loops embedded into the process allows for greater flexibility, faster responses to customer and business needs, the ability to discover and respond to failure earlier, and an overall improvement in quality. Organize work into smaller, manageable sections
When initiatives involve the right people in the correct roles, efforts benefit from better buy-in, more relevance and increased likelihood of long-term success. People and perspectives for successful collaboration can be found in all stakeholder
A holistic approach to service management requires an understanding of how all the parts of an organization work together in an integrated way.
Outcome-based thinking should be used to produce practical solutions which deliver valuable outcomes while using the minimum number of steps needed.
Optimization means to make something as effective and useful as makes sense. Before an activity can be effectively automated, it should be optimized to whatever degree is possible and reasonable. Automation is the use of technology to perform a step or series of steps correctly and consistently with limited or no human intervention.

Build 6-D Process & Delivery Model
Ideas to Solution Delivery & Business Outcomes
“What are the current problems?”. Meaningful Discovery excellence in every action. Assimilating the requirements by completing the 360 degrees circle and even beyond is my first motto for delivering excellent results.
“What do we want?”. Envision the future beforehand. To arrive at that right business forecast, put heads together for ideation. The step “Define” is based on the Discovery artifacts collection in deriving the real-life predictive solutions to Design.
“How will we get what we want?”. Initiates by carefully screening client’s needs, modus-operandi, core values and envisioning dynamic business environment. For all this a continuing stream of insights, open discussions & workshops happen once again which swiftly conclude what a design CAN or CANNOT deliver.
“Let’s create what we want”. At this stage, the actual development starts. Sticks to the agreed blueprint. Also, make sure have proper guidelines in place about the right agile mindset, practices and methodologies. “Did we get what we want?” we test for defects and deficiencies. Fix those issues until the product meets the original specifications.
“Let’s start using what we got.” At this stage, the goal is to deploy the solution to the production environment so users can start using the product or services after intense testing and acceptance.
“Let’s get this closer to what we want.” Allows any stakeholders to safely play with the product or services before releasing it to the market/business to avoid any final mistakes to be caught before releasing the product/services.

While providing service delivery solutions across all domains, put best efforts to deliver customized solutions, by optimal resource utilization which ensures client success and outcomes by my innovative solutions with Business/Customer Focused approach.

Key Focused approach
Focused on Best Quality Designs to help organizations to achieve the outcomes and co-create business value. Focused on Profitable Growth to have Best Reach, Best Cost-Effective Leadership, Process Excellence to deliver Best Quality Services
One of the reasons why I can’t find meaningful performance measures for our projects has to do with whether the projects are about actions or results. Action-oriented projects aren’t true projects, since projects should be about making a difference, not just doing stuff. My Projects Deliveries are based on Business outcomes and co-creation of Business Value.
Experience sets us apart. Myself and Each of our team members has different personal things that he or she prioritizes. As a team, we work around and respect these commitments and we are evolving.
A profitability measure that evaluates the performance of a business by dividing net profit by net worth. I am using ROI in several different ways to gauge the profitability of business or projects.
