It is common for people to imagine that a web developer’s job involves sitting behind the computer in a dark corner and writing code for endless hours. I have to say that this perception is totally wrong. Web, app and software development involves a huge amount of teamwork based on creative interaction and reliable communication. My job as a manager is to lead the team in the right direction and to ensure that the customer receives the required product within the set timeframe. Let me tell you more about how I have organised the work and how I manage my team to produce excellent results.
Teamwork with Confident Leadership
On my team, I have web designers, web and app developers and software engineers who have the technical skills, talent and experience to produce outstanding digital solutions that match the needs of customers precisely. My primary role is to bring them together and to ensure that everyone puts 100 percent in every project. I hire people who have proven their professional abilities with the creation of actual functional solutions.
Another one of the fundamentals of our successful work is that we are all in one office working together. This makes communication easier and more effective. All team members are more motivated as well. When we start working on a project, everyone who will be involved sits down and the brainstorming session begins. I use proven techniques to make my specialists think out of the box. Every idea and contribution counts. I visualise how the work will be done. By taking all relevant factors into account, I develop a plan and schedule for the project and allocate the tasks.
As a manager, I know that people are the most important factor for project success. That is why I listen carefully when my experts make suggestions and encourage them to point out potential obstacles. I am with my team every day and keep up to date with everything. We discuss the work that has been completed, how it has been done and what kinds of solutions have been implemented. This enables us to deal with challenges and to make improvements right away. It also gives everyone the sense of belonging and this is a major confidence and motivation booster. Both the work quality and productivity are maintained at equally high levels throughout the whole project.
Smart Problem Solving
My strategy for tackling problems is simple, but has always brought the best result. I sit down together with my team and we work to break the problem into smaller parts until we identify a part that can be resolved directly with the means available to us. Once we have the basis, we move onto the other parts and everything goes into place. When the details are all perfect, the big picture is truly awesome.
I always plan everything meticulously to make sure that it comes out as perfect as I have envisioned it to be. My team of like-minded professionals adheres to this principle as well. We test each component and functionality of every website, app and software product that we develop multiple times to confirm that it is flawless.
With the right skills and motivation and with hard work success is inevitable.
