Let's imagine a typical situation, which (unfortunately) is commonplace in many companies. One of the responsibilities of managers is reporting using data placed in an extensive Excel visualization spreadsheets. Working on this type of tool can be troublesome for several reasons. Often, it is the employee's responsibility to find a solution that will allow them to do their job as quickly as possible, especially when it comes to excel visualization. Therefore, formulas, macros, and other facilities are created internally for the data contained in Excel. In turn, work on internal tools and managing Excel visualization dashboards aimed at working with an extensive worksheet is not obvious and easy to implement for every employee. The element of the probability of a decrease in work efficiency and the risk of making mistakes while performing it also sneaks in here.
The current outbreak of coronavirus has caused many significant business transformations. Manufacturers, managers, and directors faced the challenge of turning the process design into the remote. Many entrepreneurs are looking for solutions among the tools that will ensure the trouble-free continuation of current processes, so that the work can be done partly remotely, without incurring financial and time consequences. If you design activities, pilot projects, model processes, or simply manage the development of various types of solutions for your company in cooperation with numerous departments, you may face several issues. These include, among other things, communication errors that can affect a mutual understanding of priorities and outlined roles when delegating tasks to the project. All this can ultimately limit the quick understanding of the task's specifications. It seems to be more sophisticated to manage the project when moving all activities to remote work. We will try to help you understand and harness the nature of simultaneous collaboration during remote work. So how do you understand and harness the nature of simultaneous collaboration during remote work?
Introducing a new person to a project usually involves making several decisions related to presenting the project. This action makes it readable so the new team member quickly understands the work methodology. Of course, this involves outlining what the processes are and what dependencies govern them. This is not only a challenge for the leader but also a team member who usually has to master the specificity of a given project immediately. Consequently, the two questions may be asked- how high the threshold for entering the project was? How complicated processes must be assimilated so that in a short time a new person can freely contribute to the project? We will try to answer these issues in the second part of our series ‘Data: Depicted’.
What causes the greatest dilemma in companies, which use and work on data? Lack of trust, one would say. In this series, we will cover the most bothering questions related to data and processes occurring in large enterprises. To start with here’s a first step to getting you introduced.
At Synergy Codes, we design and implement web applications for the client's needs on a daily basis. But it may happen we take on other challenges that can have a real impact on reality, other peoples' lives, or even motivate and integrate ourselves as a team. The COVID-19 outbreak has not only forced the transformation of our daily work but has also become a reason to do something good for others. Therefore, when the idea of the HackTheCirsis hackathon appeared, we didn't wait a moment. This event was a pro bono venture under the patronage of the GovTech organization and the Polish Prime Minister, addressed to IT companies whose task was to create tools to assist in functioning during the COVID-19 epidemic. With the programmers at our disposal, a design team, full substantive support from the organizers, our processing forces, and a tireless CEO on board, within 96 hours we created an advanced prototype application called the EpidemicApp. Having all that gathered resulted in distinction in the list of the top 10 best-submitted applications. How we managed it? You will read below.
