Rupen’s Perspective

I'm excited to see project and program management evolve towards transformation management—which requires bringing together a blend of planning and execution, change management and communications, data and analytics, financial nimbleness and dynamic resource allocation.

More About Rupen

Based in Irvine, California, Rupen’s core expertise centers around transformation planning and execution, business agility and converting strategies into actionable implementations, with a focus on empowering organizations to become more Agile.

Rupen approaches transformation as an opportunity to unlock human potential, helping people see that they can deliver more value by embracing change, while encouraging leaders to embrace the principles of servant leadership.

He’s seen the positive impact of this approach first-hand, most memorably when leading a global airline through its digital transformation. During the final phase of the program, they hosted a town hall meeting where they spoke with colleagues to get feedback on how his team had led the complex change. Rupen says, “It was extremely humbling to hear that this was, by far, the best program in terms of open communications, sticking to timelines, and treating people with respect, most of whom had their jobs changed or redefined.”

When not working, Rupen enjoys hiking, cycling and cooking.
