Project Management in IT Author

I worked with several startups, from a project based in San Francisco to companies from Israel. It’s always fun to work with less structured organizations, finally put together a strong team and create a network within a company. I haven’t chosen to become a Project Manager, the job kinda fell into my lap. I really enjoyed helping people around me, and I simply noticed that I had enough skills to grow in that area. I highly emphasize that the course should have a lot of practical lessons. I have structured the course in such a way that it would enable the students to not only get theoretical knowledge, but also real tools which they could use in their day to day life. My hobbies are running, watching movies, and self-education. You have to develop yourself constantly if you want to stay and grow in this field.

Project Management in IT TEACHER

I started my way in IT four years ago in development - C # and .Net. Then I became interested in project management. I have been working in this area for more than three years. First at Artjoker, WorkNest and Roobykon. Currently I work at P2H outsourcing company. I wanted to master process management and decision-making. I start working with projects from the presale stage, defining the basic requirements. Then I conduct business analysis and finally I release the ready product. I distribute tasks within the team, monitor and control the process, and solve financial issues. Other responsibilities include preparing the Requirement Matrix, describing the logic of working with SRS documentation, Risk Management, and clarifying the final assessment. I cooperate with customers from the USA, Canada, England, France, Spain, Germany, Poland, Austria, Australia. The main advantage of PM's work is that you can see the whole project development process. I enjoy the opportunity to organize the development work, prepare other activities and establish interaction between developers and clients. It's great to observe the team moving according to the plan. Working with people is one of the most difficult and at the same time interesting tasks. Empathy is definitely needed, as without it, you cannot set up a suitable microclimate in the team. PM is partly a creative person, but you have to be ready and make a UX prototype yourself, understand how to arrange this or that block in Axure or Figma. I have been teaching Project Management in IT for over a year now. I also consider the success of students and the emergence of new specialists on the labor market to be my own. A future manager should be tech-savvy, able to work with data, seek information, and communicate easily with the team. I devote my free time to football, reading books, travelling.

I’m a scrum master on HYS enterprise. Before that, I worked as a project manager at Solar Digital. I think I’m a good leader. Love communicating with people and get feedbacks. I believe that lessons should be interactive, consist of practical examples and be funny. I love good movies.
