The Forerunner of Canvas

Alok was also involved in multiple process improvement projects which includes IT based software development projects. With over 21 years of experience in the IT industry, he has picked up several certifications including PMP, CSM, CSPO, PMI-ACP, CBAP, SAFe Agilist and SAFe Practitioner, ITIL, and MS Project 2013.
