With already working as a technology leader, I wanted to do something bigger and better. I was looking for ways to expand my knowledge in the software industry and also grow as a person. Upskilling to learn about project management, definitely did the trick for me and even resulted in a new job.

Background 

I’m a software professional with over 15 years of experience in software industry. I was working as a technology leader in my last company, which was a product company in the Telecom and Healthcare domain.

Looking to grow in my career, I started looking for learning new things and came across Agile and Scrum as the most demanded in the project management field. I came across couple of articles on Agile methodology on internet. With Agile methodology in particular scrum methodology is the most effective methodology for developing complex software product in complex environment, I wanted to go into software project management. So I decided to take up a course in Agile Scrum methodology.

Looking For The Right Course

I evaluated various options for the course. There are few institutes in Mumbai which conduct weekend batches for this course. I knew I didn’t want to do weekend trainings because my past experience with such weekend classroom training was not good. The training was provided in very fast pace and a lot of the times, the faculties were not even teaching the latest topics currently in the market. In my research, I found about Simplilearn.

My Journey With Simplilearn

When I browsed through Simplilearn’s website, I was impressed with all the topics they were teaching and their extensive faculty. Simplilearn is a global company with a recognition in the training industry. The best part of it is one can take training with his/her own pace. There is no bombarding of the concepts. The courses are well designed and the faculties are also experienced. Also one get access to lot of study material on its portal. 

My trainer was Mr. Sandeep Shouche. Sandeep has 20+ years of experience in software industry. Moreover he has played Scrum Master role in several projects. He articulated all Scrum concepts very well, addressed all our queries patiently and satisfactorily. 

Overall it was a wonderful experience attending Sandeep’s batch. Enjoyed learning with Simplilearn. I have taken up a new role of Technical Project Manager in my new company. I am so excited to that I get to implement my Scrum knowledge on my new job.
