Navneet Karnani

Executive Team Tech Advisor | Software Product Engineering Leader | Part time CTO


Product Engineering Leader , who is more interested in building products, and mentoring teams, than keeping ownership of them. Business centric decision maker, who believes that everything is driven by the customer. Understanding the philosophy of the business, the customer and the team working to get to the end goal, is as important, as tactical decision making.

Strategic thinker , who can extrapolate history, into 6m/1y/2y/3y approximations, and drive towards those, while respecting that everyday business survival is important to be able to have a "future".

Passionate Techie , who has been at the cutting edge, and an early adopter of trends, helping his teams be efficient, productive, motivated, and feel challenged. After all, every tech team participant wants to learn all life long. Has over 35 years of programming, and over 25 years of industry experience.

Culture focused individual , who believes that value systems define people, so every organisation needs to define one that they will live, and every leader there, needs to align with that in their lives, not just for the sake of a "job". Leaders need to exhibit the values they expect their teams to show, just like parents need to do the same for their children.

Mentor , who believes that Product Engineering is not taught in the education system, and is doing something about it, while respecting the fact that not everyone is cut in the same cloth.
