“If you take a step back, what do technologists do? They understand different types of technologies are very different. They orchestrate it, they put it into a melting pot to solve some of the most complex issues that are out there,” Sharma said. “To me, leading a diverse group of team is exactly like that. How do I take all the five fingers, which are different shapes and sizes, create a fist, create the power of the solution, and bring that solution to our client needs? A technologist easily orchestrates those diversity of views into a viewpoint, into a solution that helps our clients solve their most complex problems.”
