It’s a pleasure to have delivered a half-day training session to potential/budding Principal Engineers across Amazon India. We talked about how to work backwards from the customers to define, crystallize and articulate new business opportunities.

A feedback rating of 4.7/5.0 (termed “extremely good”) reflects how useful the already mature audience found the training. We covered the mental models, the best practices and pitfalls. We looked through several “in-flight” business proposals to see the nuances in action. We discussed many real-life anecdotes of successes and failures (including some from my own experience). We reviewed several projects the participants are looking forward to.

Special thanks to the organizers Megha, Suman and Sreedevi, to Vini for the support, and to others who worked behind the scenes.

At the same time, I too learned a lot from the participants during dinner conversations. Amazon truly houses many great personalities! It was just mind-blowing!
