Consultant and Business Analyst

Hi there, My name is Jack Zadegan. I live in a very beautiful, vibrant city, Melbourne in Australia. One thing which I find very exciting is building online courses and educational material on technical and non-technical subjects. I have worked for more than 10 years in technical and non-technical consulting positions and I always keep reading, researching and testing new methods and ideas. I would love to share what I already know with Udemy students and make them as relevant and exciting as possible for them.

Briefly about my background, I am a certified Scrum Master, certified expert in BPMN 2.0., and hold qualification in MBA-Info Sys development, and an Electrical Engineering. I have worked both as a lead and a resource in a number of projects and initiatives, saved millions of dollars for different business and played an key role in the implementation of different systems.

If you have a suggestion for a topic for one of my courses, or need help with something, please don't hesitate to drop me a message. I may not always be able to help you directly, but I would still love to talk to you.
