I’m Ashween Kumar dwelling fortunately with my dad and mom, spouse & children in Delhi. I like to spend my free time with my household. I’m all for exploring totally different dimensions of information by studying/listening to audiobooks, speaking to folks to know their views on various things. I additionally like to examine historical past, science (Historical and fashionable) & Mythology.
Speaking about my Occupation, I’m a Six sigma GB licensed, with 11 years of expertise within the Finance & accounts area. I’ve labored with corporations like IBM, Genpact and Power consultants the place I’ve dealt with enterprise data transitions & travelled to totally different components of the world like Germany, Poland, ME area like KSA, UAE, Oman and so on. I’ve additionally taken care of various LOBs like Order to money/Income cycle administration with Trade varieties comparable to Healthcare, FMCG and Oil and Fuel sectors.
Earlier than becoming a member of PGP-DSBA at Nice Studying in 2020, I labored as a Supervisor of Finance and accounts with one of many Famend Power consultants and was pursuing my MBA from NMIMS. On the similar time, I dealt with a number of projects- Gross sales forecasting, Income/Value evaluation and industry-standard ratio evaluation.
I talked about the issue I had been going through at my office and tips on how to make the information appropriately & simply out there. Presenting the out there knowledge to the administration with the insights and visualization was troublesome because the knowledge was with totally different groups. It was not within the usable format with which the interpretation could possibly be derived.
I made a decision to gather the information as a lot as doable and make it extra readable. I labored on cleansing the information, the place I utilized the knowledge cleansing strategies I discovered throughout this system like filling the lacking values with imply, InterQuartile Vary & eradicating the outliers, discovering the noise within the knowledge and so on.
In my present group, the issue I recognized was concerning the information collation and visualization. The info collation was a handbook job, and there have been totally different challenges relating to the enterprise insights of the out there knowledge, since there may be no analytics (inhouse) group out there therefore I made a decision to take the 2020 efficiency of the group and made it extra presentable, visible, comprehensible which helped the Increased administration to take higher selections associated to the budgets of 2021 and the efficiency goals for the upcoming yr.
Gross sales forecasting for the yr 2021 was additionally to be carried out for one line of enterprise. I utilized the Time sequence forecasting method and offered the small print to the board for overview, which helped me perceive the present state of affairs and enhance gross sales.
The device I used to work on the talked about duties was Python & Tableau public. I utilized the training which was taught in several classes of the DSBA batch. It helped quite a bit within the general visualization presentation with the detailed enterprise insights which I ready.
The suggestions to the group got associated to the price range allocation/gross sales and price management for the group foundation the previous efficiency, which may assist the group obtain the focused margins.
Because the enterprise drawback described above was affecting the group enterprise because of the lack of analytical readability/perception of the efficiency of the general enterprise, the choices taken or the price range allocation annually was not serving to the group to realize the specified targets.
To unravel this drawback, I utilized strategies for knowledge cleansing and EDA, comparable to Imputing the lacking values with imply, decreasing the outliers or the noise within the knowledge with IQR, Primary Exploratory knowledge evaluation like Warmth map, Field plots, pair plots, describe perform in python and so on.
Other than the EDA for mannequin constructing or the interpretation, I utilized the Time sequence forecasting method to foretell the gross sales and use Tableau public to make the information extra presentable for the administration overview.
Publish the evaluation; I got here throughout the below-mentioned insights, which I offered to the board.
- One section was very excessive in producing income with a low value connected to it.
- One section was very low in income technology with a high-cost issue connected to it.
- Gross sales prediction was totally different from what the administration had in thoughts or mentioned with the client.
- Value centres with the excessive value and low margin have been recognized.
I additionally recommended changing the low revenue-generating section with the brand new section with comparatively low value.
On the gross sales prediction half, I recommended having a dialogue with the client on the settlement and to get extra enterprise/income because the contract with the client was yearly and with totally different values which weren’t assembly as per the evaluation.
The train benefited me in some ways.
