We inaugurate our fifth office and continue on the phenomenal growth path. My mother has played an important role in my growth and success. I was born in a poor but VALUE RICH family. 

My parents due to lack of access could not complete their schooling  but they invested in our education as they believed Education is transformational and brings changes that create positive impact. Education is the bridge and the means to create true equality.

Happiness Unlimited

HAPPINESS UNLIMITED IS AN OUTCOME OF following a Passion or Dream. There are times when we live our entire lives and still do not know what we are passionate about. Self assessment and discovery along with understanding of what is exhilarating and debilitating to us is one of the ways of understanding what we may be passionate about.

Greatest inventions came from folks who just did not hope that one fine day their passion or dream will turn into reality, action and deliberate effort was required to realize their dreams. 

Dream big, ACTION IT!!

Business Analysis and finding work

By:Hemant Dhariyal

Finding work and transitioning into Business Analysis role is a journey or should I say a process which requires the right and consistent preparation, motivation, confidence gained from knowledge and belief in your heart that "Yes I can". When these qualities intersect, it is at this stage, you gain the quality to deliver and demonstrate the right knowledge.

Stay confident, understand that BABOK is the authoritative source of knowledge and do not leave any stone unturned towards practicing the concepts of this standard. Success will soon be yours. Try being the best, the goal should not be money, trust me, money will come if learning is done the right way. The goal is to achieve the state of self actualization which only comes with expertise. Be the Experts, there will be no fear, just enjoyment at every stage in your career.

Knowledge has no form and when we learn well, we manage to give a form to the formless. Education must lead to opening our minds towards new possibilities, mutual respect, personal growth and most importantly sensitivity towards issues and social causes. Education is true enablement.

Our Organizations core values

Our consulting and immigration company has experienced a growth spurt and we have tripled out operations in last 3 years. And our Education Company is one of the fastest growing company in Portfolio, Program, Project, Agile scrum and Business Analysis Education. 

The primary reason for this phenomenal success has been our vision with values which have remained client focused. Forming trust and demonstrating character forms the core of our organization.

PGMP launch at Education Edge

I wanted to thank everyone for their support in helping me attain my PgMP. Passed it with ABOVE TARGET on all 5 critical domains. One of the toughest designations and really felt tested. Used all my 4 hours during the exam. 

Special thanks to DAVID ODIGIE, MBA, PMP, PgMP, PfMP, ACP, RMP, P3O, PMO CP, CBAP, CSM for his time and mentorship and Rachel Sidhu for assuming all the responsibilities of keeping everything up and running in my absence. 

Being in the business of Education and running successful consulting firms around the world, felt the pressure of expectations from all the well wishers and supporters and numerous students that look up to us as educators. 

Now that it’s done, the question is what’s next??

We launch first in class PgMP training in July 2018 at Education Edge Canada.

Hemant on Self fulfilment

Feeling of self fulfillment is what turns a good day into a great day. One of the ways to achieve Self fulfillment is by delivering excellence and surpassing expectations. Whatever capacity we work in, as long as we continue to deliver value and remain productive, we will create an impact that will bring the desired change. 

In other words, the state of self fulfillment brings happiness and joy. To attain self fulfillment though, continuous self  introspection and adjustment to our behaviours and discipline is a must.

... “YOU EVEN BETTER” will be the outcome. 

The first step towards Self fulfillment is to surround your self with great people and de-clutter your life. Painful it may be to start with, as the time will progress and as you will evolve into the BETTER YOU, then it will be all worth it.
