I am Sudhamanohar, and I am thrilled to share my professional journey and how upskilling through certifications has propelled my career in Business Analysis. With over a decade of experience, I started my career in 2011 with ICICI Bank. Join me as I delve into my enrollment decision, career goals, experience with Simplilearn, and the remarkable impact these certifications had on my professional growth.

Enrollment Decision and Career Goals

During my tenure at HCL Technologies as a Business Specialist and Senior Business Analyst, I recognized the need for further development to unlock better career opportunities. To achieve this, I pursued the Certified Scrum Product Owner and Certified Scrum Master certifications. My primary objective was to gain a broader perspective in my career and secure financial growth through enhanced skills and expertise.

My Experience with Simplilearn

When selecting a learning platform, Simplilearn stood out as the clear choice. With its renowned faculty and exceptional coaching, Simplilearn offers the ideal environment for continuous learning. The meticulously crafted curriculum appealed to me, providing the necessary depth and breadth of knowledge. I am grateful for the enriching experience and the valuable insights gained throughout the courses.

I always strive to improve my skills to remain relevant and valuable to my organization. Upgrading myself according to technological advancements is one aspect of this. I wanted to join the product owner role to accomplish more challenging tasks and increase my worth and get promotions.

My Journey

I started my career with TCS, and later I shifted to Cognizant. Here I was a part of the Business Development Group. After working at Cognizant for four years, I felt the need to change my domain to a Product Owner role. For this, I decided to pursue CSPO certification from Simplilearn to gain knowledge on the Product Owner profile and the Agile concepts. Eventually, I got an offer for the PO’e position at Cognizant, which helped me gain recognition.

The Challenges I was Facing

I loved working as a business analyst at Cognizant. All the projects were interesting, and the pay was also good. However, I always felt something was missing. At the same time, product management kept attracting me. Therefore, I wanted to learn more about working in this domain. The best way to shift to this area was to earn a professional certification so I could demonstrate the skills and earn the trust of my seniors in Cognizant. Therefore, I decided to upskill myself with the CSPO offered by Simplilearn.

Simplilearn Solution

The Simplilearn course helped me realise my dream of working as a product manager at Cognizant. The instructors of this course explained every topic and its principles very clearly, and their guidance helped me understand what are the responsibilities and roles of a product manager. This was possible because they knew what challenges a product manager had to face and accordingly provided tried and tested solutions.
