In a magnificent setting on Friday, over 50 visitors had the opportunity to listen to the lecture Dino Pavlić, the executive director responsible for projects at this fast-growing agency.
“Thank you for your interest, thank you for wanting to talk about project management, you allowed us to hold this event”at the very introduction Dino told all participants.
Lecture title How to manage 50+ active projects successfully it crystallized the size and phases of Typeqast’s projects, the team, and the methodology they use to enable them to successfully coordinate a large number of projects.
A typical project does not exist
Typeqast’s clients come from different industries, which generates the fact that there is no typical project or average duration. Still, looking at the arithmetic mean, a software development project involves 5-6 team members and the same number of months. The usual team includes Front-end and Back-end developers, Project Manager, Designer, DevOps engineer and QA.
When talking about service models, they usually work in Total Project Delivery/Team-as-a-Service, which means completely taking over a certain component of development or the entire product, thus becoming the IT department of a company.
The other model is Team extension which are most often run by clients, while Typeqast provides its human resources, ie developers.
“The criterion for distinguishing these two models refers to the existence of dedicated project managers. In the first model he exists, while in the second we have a Delivery Manager responsible for communicating with the client. ”
In the continuation, Dino explained in detail the four stages of development, presented his team, which he says he is extremely proud of, but also gave an answer to the question around which the spears are broken: “Do Project Managers have to have a programming background?”
Networking in the service of sharing experiences
Numerous questions from the audience, to which Dino patiently answered for more than 40 minutes, confirmed the purposefulness of holding such events. The meeting ended informally networkingomwith the aim of exchanging knowledge and experiences, and often some new business collaborations are born from informal gatherings.
