As documented by Arvind Kumar Dela

A professional at Indian Navy, I served the government sector for 15 years. Here my journey involved cross-functional expertise in the field of Administration, Delivery Management, Data Analytics, and Project Management. I am a Visionary and Strategic planner holding expertise in various domains. Post-retirement, I needed an introduction to the corporate world and logistics, which encouraged me to upskill. 

The Journey 

I have cross-functional expertise in different domains in the Indian Navy. I define myself as determined and self-motivated to execute high-quality results through rational analysis. My expertise lies in managing the team of the premier Data Centre of the Indian Navy’s National Command, Control, Communication, and Information (NC3I) Network. I have completed my military life with the Indian Navy and hung my uniform post 15 years of nostalgic service. During the years, I have handled diverse portfolios, including Logistics. However, there was a need to synchronize the military Logistic actions with the corporate domain. Hence, I decided to undertake the latest Logistic courses available in the market. 

The Challenge 

I needed to switch my domain to the corporate world. Furthermore, the requirement arose to incorporate my previous experiences with new learnings and their applications. A quality educational platform with excellent services on logistic courses was difficult to find. After thorough research, I chose Simplilearn for enrollment. 

Simplilearn Solution

My desirable course at Simplilearn was available in association with Purdue Univeristy, which was one of the factors for my choice. Apart from this, the experience at Simplilearn was applaudable for multiple reasons. Firstly, it was an interactive learning opportunity with an online-led instructor course. The objectives of the said course are achieved with modern edge technology demonstration and professional instructors. Secondly, it utilized a holistic approach to define 21st-century logistic requirements, challenges, automation of processes, and analytical-driven strategic decisions. The course also focused on challenges and growth opportunities in the Indian logistics sector.

The Impact 

I felt knowledge and skill enrichment after this course accounted for the personal impact.
