Once a month we'll shine our virtual spotlight on one of the CA Service Management community's members. It's just a fun, easy way for us to get to know one another a little bit beyond our work-related interactions here on the site. This month, we're featuring Rajeev Kumar, CA Technologies.
Location: Hyderabad, India
Current Gig: Principal Product Manager, CA Service Management
One word that describes how you work: Collaboratively
How do you use CA Communities and any suggestions for others? I use CA Communities mostly for product ideation and announcements, but I would like to spend more time reading the posts as there is always so much in them to learn about how a product is being used.
Mac or PC? Mac
Mobile Device? Android. Currently using Google Nexus 6P. No plans to switch to iPhone ever
Apps/software/tools you can’t live without? Outlook, WhatsApp, Kindle, TripAdvisor, Banking Apps, Google Keep
Besides your phone and computer, what's your favorite gadget? Digital SLR
What’s your daily work space like? A clean desk with my Macbook Air and Cisco phone.
How do you balance life/work? I figured there is no ‘balance’. So now I have a single backlog for work and life that undergoes continuous value-based prioritisation.
Best advice you can give and you have received? Perseverance is key to success. When it comes to communicating with people - listen, think, talk in that order.
What everyday thing are you better at than anyone else? There is always going to be someone better in all the areas that I consider myself good at. I guess what I don’t see often in people around me is the ability to constantly learn from others, that may be the one.
