  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) August 26, 2010 - Dr. Sriramasundararajan Rajagopalan, Senior Program Manager for Physicians Interactive and Instructor and Adjunct Faculty for the University of Phoenix, Joliet Junior College, and University of Riverside, has been selected as an Honored Member of the Biltmore Who's Who Executive and Professional Registry. The selection recognizes Dr. Sriramasundararajan Rajagopalan's commitment to excellence in the field of Information Technology and Project Management.

    Dr. Rajagopalan, who began his career in India in 1990, became certified in information technology as part of the course in biomedical engineering through the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, and later became certified in computer engineering from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.

    Beginning his full-time career as a software engineer in General Electric Medical Systems in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Dr. Rajagopalan moved to eFunds, Legg Mason, West Notification Group, and Physicians Interactive, holding various positions from Senior Programmer Analyst, Business Analyst, Project Manager, to Senior Program Manager. Founded in 2005, he has also been running a sole proprietorship providing information technology and management consultancy through which he engaged in a contractual work for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois through CFS/Harbor Ventures. Besides, Dr. Rajagopalan has focused substantial time researching about a management consultancy model around a leadership framework that he has been developing that evolved from his doctoral research.

    As a senior program manager, Dr. Rajagopalan manages the project within cost, schedule, and scope, or what is called triple constraints, to deliver a quality product. Managing both projects and the programs, he has worked in the financial services industry, such as delivering billing automation projects and financial reconciliation projects, infrastructure, professional services like developing websites and delivering outbound and inbound voice and email notification projects including the delivery of notifications in many languages. Currently, he manages pharmaceutical marketing projects that involve messaging and communication, bringing pharmaceutical information to physicians and managing the recruitment efforts around the goals. In addition, Dr. Rajagopalan has been teaching at the university level for the past ten years in information technology and management subjects.

    Attributing his entrepreneurial and leadership mindset, being proactive to drive value, and to connect with people as being a huge contribution to his success, Dr. Rajagopalan continues to seek knowledge through many different avenues. "I believe that education is a journey, not a destination," he said. "I find that the more I learn the more I recognize how little I know. As a result, I have always perspired to educate myself more by investing in scholar-practitioner oriented education." He added that by seeking current trends in the economy and technology, along with his own personal interests that evolve over experience and education, he has found that project and people skills are indispensable in bringing value to his role. As a result, he has sought out to invest himself in observing management practices of key leaders in the organization and the industry, reads scholarly and practitioner literature, maximizes on-the-job training, opens himself up to feedback through self-initiated feedback loops, completes formal degree program and professional certifications, attends seminars, workshops, and professional conferences, promotes job rotation, and engages in teaching assignments so that he can share and acquire knowledge.

    Currently working on an interview based qualitative leadership study, Dr. Rajagopalan plans to explore this model more through research and establish a small business organization where he can engage in training, research, and management consultancy. He also plans to invest time in furthering his project and program management skills and to contribute as a scholar practitioner in the fields of emotional intelligence, leadership, project management, and virtual teams.

    Dr. Rajagopalan holds a BE in Electronics and Communication from the University of Madras, an MS in Computer Engineering from Wayne State University, an MBA from Concordia University, and most recently a PhD in Organization Leadership from Capella University. He is a certified SCRUM master, project management professional, and is also certified in IT Project+ and Sarbanes Oxley. He's a member of the Project Management Institute, and a life member of the Center of Creative Leadership. He has presented two papers in the Symposium on Global Mindset and Development at the University of Riverside in 2009 and 2010, and has been invited to serve as the blind peer reviewer in scholarly journals. He was named Faculty of the Quarter from the University of Phoenix in 2004. He was also named Employee of the Month in October of 2008 and won the Triple Hats Off Award in 2009 from West Notifications Group. He's the recipient of a graduate research assistantship from Wayne State University for three semesters and the ODASSS scholarship from the Association of Commonwealth Universities. In his free time, Sriramasundararajan enjoys playing the violin, theater acting, and traveling.
