Kalyan Vandana, a Principal Consultant and Agile Coach at Xebia. Born and raised in Vizag, India, I've grown into a global-minded individual with a passion for making a positive impact. I bring this ethos to my work in digital transformations, Agile initiatives, and DevOps transformations within the technology domain of varied industries.
I'm certified as an SPC 6 (SAFe® Practice Consultant), SDP (SAFe® DevOps Practitioner), and KMP (Kanban Management Professional) from Kanban University, and a Prosci® Certified Change Management Practitioner. I'm proficient in platforms like Jira, Jira Align, Rally, Version One, and TFS (Visual Studio Online).
I am a firm advocate for the transformative potential of agile methodologies, championing the instillation of values like trust-building, respect, transparent communication, and a relentless pursuit of continuous improvement and excellence within work environments. I take satisfaction in guiding organizations through the tumultuous waves of the digital era, nurturing high-performing teams that not only comprehend and implement Agile techniques but also fully assimilate and cultivate an Agile mindset.
