People Management or Project Management?

I still cannot find what is more difficult and sophisticated for me, it is either People Management or Project Management. Both terms are applicable and vital to get to the point of successful and outstanding result. The project cannot exist without the right people and the right people must have a good project. This is where things become interesting. In my practice any unwanted, boring, surviving project demotivates and destroys great professionals.

Theoretically, we all know what agile, deadline, communication mean, but what is really out there that makes the company work the best and reach the great result so fast? I believe it is a soul, dedication and love for everybody and everything involved in the process. In our everyday management routine we have emotions, eagerness, love and hate for many subjects. We argue, we compromise, we brainstorm and we have to live with that. Today your opinion lost, tomorrow it is implemented.

Horizontal approach

I believe that people management comes as the most difficult part of the absolute best company. At the end of the day it is your staff that sums up for the well-skilled manager. One cannot become a good manager if people are not reliable and vice versa. Nowadays, professionals are so well educated, they value, respect own capabilities, skills that approaching them vertically will squeeze them down and destroy any potential. While flatteries, giving people the possibility to express themselves, take a step ahead, make decisions and cope with the challenges result in highly accumulative creativity.

This approach doesn’t only make good middle management but gives each company great confidence in having the outlined management structure and what is more important – trust in its human resource. Therefore if you ask me how we do it, I cannot answer. We are just part of every single process, people need us and we need people, they manage us and we manage them.

Team spirit

And working as a team, realizing that it is all done for one single reason to bring the company to the top level is a key factor in creating the feeling of right management. Choosing the right direction for the people and being a leader by showing that you can play a different role in the chain is what makes people realize how far they may also go.

About the bureaucracy which we try to avoid as much as we can. I cannot say that it is the right or wrong approach to choose but we chose it. We feel like that, we don’t delegate things but do them ourselves, and all company acts the same. It has become a cultural phenomenon, hard but very attractive, same as you go to exercise hard, strive and exhaust but feel happy about an astonishing result at the end.

SAPIENTPROOur Support for Ukraine During 2023-24

It’s been almost two years since Russia invaded Ukraine, igniting the largest war in Europe since WW2 and forcing millions of civilians to leave their homes. The battle for freedom is ongoing and SapientPro’s team is doing everything possible to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

NEWS Supporting Ukraine during the war as of 2023

How our team supports Ukraine as of 2023. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine ignited the largest war in Europe since WW2, displacing millions of civilians and destroying entire cities. SapientPro has been doing everything possible to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine and refugees to defeat the invaders.

SAPIENTPROThe Importance of Supporting Ukraine From Other Countries

Ukrainians will never forget the morning of February 24. Some of us woke up to the sound of sirens, others to the sound of bombs, and many to the news of a full-scale Russian war reported from the TVs and phone calls. As a matter of fact, Russia’s war against Ukraine began eight years ago, but only on that unfortunate morning of February, it went full-scale. At the time of writing this article, Ukraine is on its 12th day of resistance against Russia. The Russian army has been committing numerous war crimes: shelling and bombarding civilian buildings, hospitals, and schools, shooting families and children, firing at humanitarian corridors. An unprovoked war by Russia is a crime in and of itself. But even throughout this bloody war, Russians break all war rules. Enemy forces believe they have the freedom to do literally anything cruel and immoral. So under such circumstances, Ukraine needs help not only from Ukrainian citizens, who are actively volunteering and donating, but also from the international community. The entire world can make a real difference in this war and help overcome the evil forces of Russia. Here are some ways:

SapientPro is not about work only. It’s about the people who do this work.Each year there is a special day when SapientPro IT guys close their laptops. They stop sending the “Android vs iPhone” memes to the chat. Their wives hide their computer mice and chargers. SapientPro`s New Year party has come. It’s time to let some steam off. The restaurant Monopoli warmly welcomed us on the 27th of December. The party once more highlighted that our team is growing every year. We held the first corporate party in 2017. It was in a small apartment with only 5 workers, great ambitions, and self-made bbq. Today we are a team of 40 specialists. The ambitions are multiplied by 5, and the bbq made for us. Many glasses were raised to celebrate the enlargement of our close-knit IT-family. We arranged the Secret Santa and a special contest, so the party lasted till 2 AM. Even then we didn’t want to stop.
