Vishal Somal successfully completes training which will enhance Mastek’s UK operations

Mastek, the global provider of vertically-focused enterprise technology and platforms today announces one of the company’s project managers Vishal Somal is one of the first candidates to successfully complete the respected Agile Project Management Qualification from APMG & DSDM. The qualification aims to address the needs of those working in a project-focused environment that want to work in an Agile way. Based on proven fundamentals within DSDM Atern, the certification provides the ability to deliver Agile Projects in organisations requiring standards, rigour and visibility around project management

Elwyn Jones, VP and Head of Public Sector, says:
“We are thrilled that Vishal has enhanced his already exemplar credentials in Agile Project Management by becoming one of the first candidates to obtain the respected APMG & DSDM qualification. Vishal has run a number of successful projects for Mastek as the Engagement Manager for one of Mastek’s key UK accounts and is responsible for on-offshore operations. Mastek has significant experience of running on-offshore Agile projects and Vishal’s accreditation just serves to underline this expertise.”

Vishal Somal, Project Manager at Mastek UK says:
“The training I underwent helped me understand Agile to a greater degree. The course helped me focus on how Agile could help me in my role and also our wider organisation. It was an eye-opener and presented a different way of looking at the software development process. Off-shoring represents huge opportunities for Agile working and Agile PM helps deliver projects on time and to quality. In any offshore organisation people need to work in an Agile way otherwise products can be delivered that are not what the customer wanted. By working in this style we are able to deliver in a cost effective, efficient and most importantly successful manner for our clients. ”
