I was Hiren’s manager for most of his last year at EMC. He is a very skilled program manager and very good at managing highly complex programs that cross multiple teams and geographies. He handles all aspects of large programs well, from driving to meet high level goals to following up on many small items and everything in between. His personal style is extremely positive, with strong communication skills, and he is very good at helping teams work through the challenges and difficulties that inevitable happen on large software development teams. He is both highly respected and well liked by everyone who has worked with him (including me). He also has a great deal of experience and insight on agile processes and how to best adapt them in an enterprise environment.
