I’m proud to announce that our own ODDI Scrum Master extraordinaire, Ashok Ramachandran, has been asked to share his expertise at the upcoming and sold-out GSA DigitalGov Citizen Services Summit. Government leaders of all levels — from federal to local municipalities — will be attending to learn more about topics ranging from 3d Printing to Human-Centered Design. Ashok is speaking on May 21 at 12:30 p.m. about “Agile Methods in Opening Government” with Bill Brantley from the Department of Agriculture.
Ashok has been in our office for just under two years and has made an exponential impact on the products and services we offer — especially on the mobile team, where he’s helped us manage multiple teams on-shore and off-shore, launching more than a dozen award-winning products from low-tech to high-tech in more than 60 languages, often with multiple products rolling out at the same time. At the same time, he’s also miraculously worked as Scrum Master for multiple other teams with dozens of developers, designers and stakeholders helping ship live products for the BBG marketing team including a new CRM system, BBGDirect.com and digital publishing technology tools working with a few other small federal agencies (The State Department and Department of Defense).
“Ashok is one of the best scrum masters we’ve ever worked with, he has kept the Mobile Team focused and executing on multiple projects at the same time.” Bo Kostro, ODDI Mobile Release Manager said, “He works hard on meeting the deadlines and removing blockers.”
Ashok has been key in the execution of our fleet of mobile products and the team’s #AlwaysBeShipping attitude and culture; we’re proud to have him making a larger impact sharing his expertise with other government agencies.
