Client Delivery<br />Kaushik was one of the most diligent team members, always submitting weekly updates on time. He interfaced very well with the client, and coordinated input across CDG, CFG, SaaS and Consulting in a way that ensured very high quality deliverables. Other tracks followed his example in this respect.<br />- Engagement Feedback (Apr, 2009)<br />Kaushik was the lone functional member in the team in the pre-requirement phase and he has worked well with the client from India to gain an overall understanding about client specifics from a domain/ requirement perspective.<br />He supported Project Management aspects and took the lead in functional interactions and product study phase.<br />- Engagement Feedback (Apr, 2010)<br />
Expertise<br />Kaushik is one of those individuals who tackles a new subject head on, and over the course of the project, ramped up from neophyte to social media maven very nicely. I would point anyone with questions about social media in MFG to Kaushik before anyone else I know. <br />- Engagement Feedback (Apr, 2009)<br />Kaushik came out strongly as a domain/ functional person of PWB in multiple cases such as the MS seminar at Delhi, Contract Adherence workshop support at GP (supported GV in conducting the workshop), putting up a maturity model (Contract Compliance) for GP etc.<br />-Engagement Feedback (Apr, 2010)<br />
Leadership<br />I have to commend Kaushik for really exceeding all expectations in taking full control of the MFG after Norris left the project. Following Norris' departure, he and I had a conversation about me really needing him to step up to ensure MFG didn't lose steam - not only did he meet my expectations, he completely blew them away. Frankly speaking, Kaushik excelled so well in his role as track lead that it retrospect it made Norris look bad. Combined with his diligence and high levels of personal effectiveness, I have to rate him as one our leading SA's. <br /> - Engagement Feedback (Apr, 2009)<br />Very strong project management skills <br /> - planning, monitoring, taking the team to task in case deliverables do not match expectation while ensuring softer aspects are taken care. Kaushik's meticulous planning and monitoring skills have provided the desired result when the team was struggling with an extended testing and UAT phase. <br />Has an innate ambition to socialize and take reviews for improvement.<br />- Engagement Feedback (Oct, 2009)<br />
Engagement outcome<br />Kaushik expanded the knowledge on product features from dedicated secondary research, webinars etc. and created a deck that was informative and a good reference for PWB future roadmap. He has also refined PWB 1.0 requirements in the light of GP project. Once transferred to the product PWB functional content hence is at a much higher level compared to what it was before.<br />His contribution was important to the pre-project phase with GP.<br />-Engagement Feedback (Apr, 2010)<br />Kaushik set the bar for the program by producing outcomes that were embraced by our customer more so than any of the other tracks. Not only did he produce the greatest number of usable deliverables in the way of scenarios, Kaushik also went above and beyond to create the marketing collateral - despite it being out of scope for the engagement - to support the scenarios because he anticipated they'd be required. And he was right. Sterling job. <br />-Engagement Feedback (Apr, 2009)<br />
