Abrachan Pudusserry (Aby)

Experienced and passionate project management professional with indepth knowledge of Agile, Predictive and Hybrid project management. Also like to work with teams to improve their Agility. Had the opportunity to work closely with multiple organizations to transform their teams from waterfall to agile using scrum. I am also fortunate enough to train more than 15,000 professionals from various geographies on professional project management best practices. The PMdistilled PMP program architected and delivered by me helped many to suceed at the PMP exam on the first attempt itself without spending too much time for preparation. Not only that, When I talk to them after a couple of years, they are always grateful for learning the concepts from both exam perspective as well as practitioners perspectve which really helped them to implement the concepts at the workplace. Since the latest PMBOK and the PMP exam covers both predictive and agile, it has become more valuable.

I passed my PMP in the year 2004 (not renewed). PRINCE2 Practitioner, Certified Scrum Master (CSM), Agile Certified Practitioner (ACP) are the other project management certifications I gained, before understanding the universal truth of project management Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) of Deming.

As an employee, I had major and meaningful stints at HCL, Novell & Wrench Solutions. At HCL, I gained experience in I.T project management. Novell gave me opportunity to gain insights into software product development. Wrench solutions, the makers of SmartProject for the Construction sector helped me to understand EPC Project management to a great extent. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach Project Management to the business management students at XIME as a visiting faculty.

As a consultant and coach, I was fortunate enough to be invited by major corporates like Intel, Microsoft, Toshiba, Sony, Ericsson, ABB, Oracle, Infosys, HP, Qatar Electric, Kuwait Finance House, National Bank Of Oman, PDO and several other small and medium size organizations for customized project management trainings for their teams.
