On November 12, 2016, our colleagues from several departments (Web Development, ASP.NET, Server Administration, and HR) took part in the WOW-IT: PM&HR to improve team management and teambuilding skills.
The aim of the conference was to gather project managers and human resource managers under one roof to help them exchange experiences and to inspire others to achieve excellent teamwork. It was a cannot-miss event for everyone who wanted to master their skills in team performance, product management and team collaboration. The conference included a series of talks and creative workshops given by market leaders followed by a discussion panel.
To help participants stay focused during this extended period of time, organizers offered several parallel workshops: everyone could choose topics they were interested in the most.
Many of our colleagues learnt how gamification works while building robots. They had to form efficient teams able to build and program robots from concept to working prototypes within a certain time limit.
The result was improvement of their soft skills: communication and smooth teamwork.
Events like WOW-IT: PM&HR boost people’s understanding on how things work, thus helping learn new technologies, exchange skills and knowledge between veterans and newcomers, and build workflow in a more efficient manner.
