I’m a strategy consultant based in Bangalore. I’m also passionate about and good at data and quantitative methods, which I use heavily in my consulting business.
My main business combines data/analytics and strategy consulting, as I help companies solve their business problems using data and quantitative methods.
And I’m always up to some interesting thing or the other.
The bread and butter of my work since 2011 has been to help businesses solve strategic problems using data and quantitative methods.
I have done a large number of assignments, across industries and company life stages, helping companies figure out how to get the best value out of their data and make more informed decisions. My work can be broadly classified into two broad categories – model/product building and strategy consulting driven by data.
In the recent past, I have focussed on two programs that I have designed for high growth businesses – data diagnostic (to help companies realise value from the data they have already collected), and founder conversations (to act as a sounding board to help founders make better data-driven decisions).
In this “popular economics” book published in 2017, I use concepts from financial markets to explain bugs and features and quirks and inconsistencies in everyday markets.
I talk about how Uber/Lyft/Ola revolutionised local transportation, why Chelsea paid £50 million for Fernando Torres and why the likes of Redfin or Zoopla or Housing haven’t made a dent in the real estate market.
