Harsh Sabikhi – Adapting To Change
I never stop learning. I’m always constantly changing and adapting to change. The technology industry is very fast paced. It will leave behind professionals who are resistant to change. You go on LinkedIn and you’ll see all these articles on change management and what not – all these agile scrum and all these methodologies that are coming into place. The speed and the pace of change is only accelerating….and that’s showing no signs of stopping. You can never stop learning. You always have to be constantly changing and adapting to change.
