Working as a team requires everyone's efforts and responsibility. Team makes every member stronger than one individual, and at the same time, each individual contributes the team and bring a team to a new level. All for one. One for all.
Project Manager & Quality Assurance Analyst
As a project manager, I learnt the importance of good time management and resource planning. Through out the project, I also learnt how to manage our stakeholders effectively and to be adaptable and realistic to changes that were presented to our team. It has also help to hone my communication skills which will be helpful for future projects. It has enabled me to approach the project from a larger perspective and to truly empathize with our sponsor's problems.
UI Developer & Business Analyst
As a UI designer, I learned how to design and develop UI using CSS, Java Script and so on. I also learned to work closely with real users to improve usability and aesthetics of the application. Many feedbacks from users and merchants during UAT can help me develop a better UI design. Also I learned to work with team mates closely to make sure the continuity and unity of codes and UI. As the business analyst, I learned to better gather and analyse requirements from sponsor to help the team understand the sponsor’s business model and requirements.
