January 2017 CIPS Volunteer of the Month:

Sasi Kumar I.S.P., ITCP

CIPS Ontario

About Sasi: 

What is your Background?

My IT career started during the IBM System/360 -punch card, assembler language -era and progressed through Pac-Man years into microcomputers and into the current IoT age. Over the years, I have gained demonstrated knowledge of information technology along with various aspects of business analysis and project management in small to large organizations - from service, manufacturing, and retail to the public sector.

I am an ardent believer in volunteerism. Thus, my involvement in standards development with Standards Council of Canada’s (representing ISO) mirror committees, CIPS, and Project Management Institute (PMI) are very relevant. Also, I am a member of the Standards Council of Canada's Canadian Young Professionals Program Advisory Panel. They all are examples of consensus-building teamwork in local, and global environments.

I am a holder of the Information Technology Certified Professional (ITCP) and Information Systems Professional (I.S.P) designations granted by CIPS. I obtained Project Management Professional (PMP) credential in 2004, and later in 2012 graduated from the PMI’s Leadership Institute Master Class. Along with a BSc. Degree, a Diploma in Business Management, various Microsoft professional certifications including MCSE and MCT, I hold ITIL and Programming Technology certifications. I often write about PM, IT, leadership, and other current topics. 


What type of Involvement have you had with CIPS?

I was elected to the Board of Directors of CIPS (CIPS-Ontario) in 2009 and served until 2012. Currently, I am a member of the CIPS Education and Experience Review Committee


What value has your involvement with CIPS provided?

CIPS gives me a platform to network with other professionals thus to further enhance my industry, subject matter, and leadership exposure.  Again, volunteering for the CIPS Education and Experience Review Committee is a mutually beneficial association. I believe ongoing learning, current industry-leading certifications, and volunteering will definitely improve career outlooks.
