Hi, I’m Balamurali, Programs Head, Lean Coach, Public Speaker

While I started my career as a banker I eventually transitioned into technology and Projects. Dabbling in complex projects is my forte having worked in many large  & complex Core-banking Programs in SCB and earlier.  Currently I am neck deep in a complex SAP implementation for SCB.

While Program Management has been my mainstay, I never worried about experimenting roles to learn new skills like Process Re-engineering, Lean, Robotics and AI.  The last 10 years have been vibrant for the Startup ecosystem in India and I have not missed the opportunity to test waters with startup ideas like Mental Health for masses and working closely with a Robotics Startup who created an AI based RPA product.

When I returned to Program Management, the varied experiences brought me new insights and thereby new ways of working.  My interest in Coaching and Public speaking was sparked by my Toastmasters Journey which commenced in 2014.
