The secret of success
I believe that I am best at project management and team management. My experience has taught me how to effectively manage projects, deadlines, budgets, and scope while maintaining excellent communication with the team and the client. This helped me to effectively manage resources at the department level and plan not only for a month in advance but also for 3 years the development of the department.
To continuously develop my skill, I stay up to date with the latest project management methodologies and tools and regularly I attend courses and master classes to exchange experience with colleagues in the industry.
One success that I am especially proud of is that IT Delight proved that even during the strongest crises we can rely on each other and the work of our employees. Our ability to work together as a team and deliver quality solutions to our clients has helped us establish a strong reputation in the industry. To me, success is about making a positive impact on the lives of those around me, both personally and professionally. However, the very essence of success is hard work. nothing else will lead you to success and will not keep you on the crest of success for a long time.
At this stage, I am satisfied with my current activities, but I am always looking for ways to grow and improve. I would like to further develop my skills in business strategy and crises management. I believe that this will help the company in future growth.
In the past five years, I have grown a lot both professionally and personally. I have taken on more responsibility and gained a deeper understanding of the inner workings of a successful business. I have also become more confident and assertive in my leadership style, while still maintaining the ability to listen and learn from those around me.
I have always worked hard and would love to spend more time sharing experiences with industry peers. I would like to contribute to the development of our industry. I would be interested in becoming an advisor for some companies with similar backgrounds to help them overcome the difficulties that we have already overcome.
