Do you know this proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” What if you decide to go far and fast... together? This is what we experience here at Netguru. We know that we are strong only as a close-knit team. We must go together. Besides, the more the merrier. We want to reach ambitious goals rather than rest on our laurels. We want to go far. Finally, we know that we can go far as a team only if we quickly react to market trends. We have to move fast in a truly Agile way. Under such circumstances, we must constantly make sure that we are all on the same page. How do we do that? The answer is simple: knowledge sharing.

That said, it’s a task you should be committed to throughout the project to make sure the efficiency is maintained, instead of only achieving it temporarily. Maintaining the efficiency of our teams is one of the most important roles of a Project Manager in Netguru.

"It depends".  That's an answer I hate and love at the same time. In this case, it fits very well. The approach to developing your skills depends on: The skill you wish to build, the level of expertise you want to achieve, your current level of experience as a Project Manager, the dynamics of your projects/organization, the amount of time you have, the budget you have. For this article, I'm focusing on the differentiation by the level of expertise: Junior Project Manager, (Regular) Project Manager, and Senior Project Manager.

Time flies, and I don’t even know when 10 months in Netguru have passed. From the professional point of view, it was the most challenging and exciting time in my career.

Being a part of Netguru is an amazing adventure. I joined the company as very fresh junior PM, without experience in taking care of my own projects or mentoring anyone. The company was around 80 people and 5 PMs. After 4 years of being here, not only has the company reached 600 employees (with close to 50 PMs on board!), but also I feel that I grew at least at the same pace as the organization! Along the way, I became a leader and had the privilege of helping other managers to grow into their full potential. Some of them are also leaders right now. I also became a senior, but I still feel like I am just getting started!
