More About Balaji

Balaji was “born to work in ERP,” bringing a strong dedication to helping our clients with successful ERP implementations that are completed on time and on budget. This passion goes back to his early career as a finance manager working only with manual systems. After learning about ERP systems, Balaji went all in, mastering the concepts not only of ERP, but also project and program management. 

RGP’s clients are equally enthusiastic about Balaji. As one CFO describes him: “Balaji isn’t just a technical guru. He knows the end game. He knows where things could go wrong. And he’s very good at synthesizing complexity and ambiguity.”

The secret to his steady hand and calm demeanor? Balaji is also an avid practitioner and teacher of traditional yoga—and extols its benefits for mental and physical well-being.

3 Questions

What sort of disruption in your career has spurred personal and professional growth?

While I was a finance manager working with three business units and a staff of 10 accountants, I was encouraged by a friend to learn the Oracle ERP system, which was relatively new at that time. That changed my career and accelerated my professional growth, giving me an opportunity to work internationally and settle down in the US with my family. I am always thankful to him for adamantly pushing me into the world of ERP.

What does human agility mean to you?

Human agility means treating people with dignity while holding them accountable. Serving as career advisors and facilitators rather than micro managers. Integrity is the key for anything we do in life and particularly at work.

What excites you most when you think about the future of work? Why?

I’m excited about innovation and the way technology is shaping the future. Technology such as RPA and AI are the key for improving productivity. We have a lot more flexibility at work today than we did in past decades, which makes it easier to balance personal and professional life.
