Kirti Poonia, Head of Okhai, was a software engineer at TCS when she came across Tata Administrative Services (TAS) in 2011. A leadership programme set up by the legendary JRD Tata, TAS grooms a very select group of people in leadership.
Kirti tells MAKERS India, "Every year only about 20 people get into the programme, and from within the group, only one or two people are selected and then groomed in business. It was a rigorous, seven-month long process. I worked really hard, and after almost seven rounds of interviews, group discussions, presentations, and case studies, I got in."
