Basic Gig 
For $5 you will get a comprehensive one-page review report with a rating for each section. I will also calculate a Profile Strength Indicator (PSI). This will give you a good idea of how much effort you need for a profile facelift. The Gig Gallery has a report preview image.

Gig Extra #1 
If the basic report is too skinny for you I would recommend this extra. The Detailed LinkedIn Profile Review Report gives you findings & suggestions for each section. Included are a SWOT analysis & key recommendations. I will also share best practices and tips for each section.

Gig Extra #2 
I can also review and configure your account privacy & settings. Ask me why it is important! But do not order before asking what I would need from you to do this. 
When you signed up for your LinkedIn profile why did you do so? So you now have a profile and have some connections. But is it working for you? Is it time to take a peek under the hood? But before you jump into it, get an expert opinion on what exactly you need to do. I would be happy to review your LinkedIn profile, all seventeen sections of it. Basic Gig For $5 you will get a comprehensive one-page review report with a rating for each section. ...

Cities are slated to be vital entities of the future. Enterprises like IBM and Cisco are investing heavily on Smart City initiatives. But I am not entirely sure what that means for us individuals. I find this The Ohio State University course on TechniCity at Coursera interesting from that perspective. 

About the Course (from the Coursera site):
We are part of the 'TechniCity'. The increasing availability of networks, sensors and mobile technologies allows for new approaches to address the challenges that our cities face. The way we understand cities is undergoing sweeping transformation, right along with the analytical tools we use to design our cities and the communication tools we use to engage people. Absorbing, studying and understanding the role of technology from a critical viewpoint allows us to generate creative ideas for improving our cities.  

This course begins by examining how our cities are changing. We then jump into how technology is used to engage with the public to support decision-making and the creative ways that every-day people are using technology to improve their cities.   Students will be examining tools for analyzing the city. Then we move into exploring the fascinating ways that cities are using real-time, technology. You'll hear from technological innovators and thought leaders about all of these topics. You will get to engage around a topic you are most interested in to create a project in your own city.

I have read discussions on how "project scope" and "product scope" as defined in the PMBOK - especially as they relate to a software project. I have seen clients being open to discuss "project scope" as defined by the PMBOK as long as the "product scope" is not compromised. Defining "product scope" is, however, easier said than done. Here is an attempt to deconstruct scope into components or levers. I would very much appreciate your feedback. Please share your thoughts on the post page itself.

❖ Science [ general ]  - 
 
How is it that the words Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics seem so stern yet Popular Science evokes the feeling of friendly mirth at an English pub? But people do talk of STEM all the time. Maybe little doses of STEM would make it less daunting. That is the thought that led me to curate this Paper.li news paper titled "Stem in Little Doses." With no teacher peering over the shoulder to pass judgement on what we are reading, we can also pick and choose which story to read in this newspaper with out feeling guilty of focusing on the more interesting bits and bytes. 

Any comments and/or queries are most welcome.

Story
Tagline
My staple diet is impossible projects
Introduction
If I were an object I would most probably be a Swiss Army Knife with all the interests that I have and skills I have cultivated. Most of the people are happy to have me around at work and find my perceptions engaging. I earn my paychecks by partly managing IT projects & programs and partly by managing client relationships. People forced to say good things about me (on LinkedIn recommendations) say I am caring, dedicated, diligent, energetic, focused, friendly, good soul, hardworking, honest, humorous, incorrigible, innovative, intelligent, knowledgeable, listener, a mentor, objective, optimist, patient, people's person, personable, seasoned, smiling, structured, trusting, trustworthy, and valuable. I guess I am “Mostly Harmless”.
Bragging rights
It has been quite a journey from the industrial railway town of Asansol to the Township of Woodbridge,NJ, with still a lot of miles ahead. Making the most of my life till I realize that my get-up-and-go has got up and went.
