One of the values that guide us at CoolVision is that every part is important for building a strong, stable, and professional core. We encourage our employees to work as a team, strive for constant learning, maintain effective communication, and create collaborations that will strengthen the relationships between the various departments. All these lead to the synergy that exists between the development roles and those that are not technological roles, such as product managers, studio managers, marketing, and sales.
When different departments work together towards a common goal, they can create something that is greater than the sum of its parts. For example, the technical department can build an innovative and user-friendly product, the creative department can design a visually appealing product, and the marketing department can sell the product to a wide audience. When these departments work together seamlessly, they can create a product that succeeds in the market.
Our work teams are small, efficient, professional, and fast, which encourages the creation of joint work that unites everyone towards the same goal: the success of CoolVision's activities and its products. All these factors contribute to teamwork being essential for synergy, growth, and innovation to occur. When people work together towards a common goal, they are more likely to succeed. This is because teamwork allows people to share ideas, resources, and expertise. It also allows people to learn from each other and build relationships with each other.
Learning is a constant and continuous process that is essential for companies for the success of their products and for maintaining the professionalism of their employees, which is also done here at CoolVision. As the market changes, companies need to be able to adapt and change with it. This requires us as a society to be open to new ideas and to be ready to learn new things, to get out of the "routine" we have become accustomed to. Through cohesive work teams, little bureaucracy, and open and constant dialogue, we encourage every employee at CoolVision to try and get the most out of themselves, whether through independent learning, knowledge enrichment through courses and conferences, or constant employee dialogue. It is with each other that encourages them to share professional knowledge and participate in projects in which they take part.
These factors create in employees the courage to take risks and create new ideas or find new ways of doing things. Risk-taking is necessary to create innovation. So, how does constructive collaboration here at CoolVision contribute to our work teams for collaborations, good communication, constant learning, risk-taking, and reciprocity? Here is an example from the field of some professionals who work for us at CoolVision in a variety of development and non-technological roles and can testify:
Boris Evraev (Development TL) - A high-tech company that only has development people is seen as a company that "takes orders". A company needs and it is important that it integrates both the development roles and the non-technological roles to be successful and for things to work. There must be a certain technological understanding even for positions that do not require development and touching the code, so that the product works, and the company can develop in the desired direction. The way I see it, development is like the "executive body" and the one that tells the rest of the company what can be developed and in how long, and in contrast, the product, marketing, etc. are the body that collects the requirements for development and directs how the product should look and what target audience it is going to appeal to. I feel that at CoolVision the constructive interaction necessary for the success of the company and the product is well maintained. Collaboration, communication and working together create synergy between the teams and the people with each other.
Adam Baker (Senior Product Manager) -Flawless communication is the essence, and the difference, between not only the level of success of the task at hand but also to avoid mistakes, which can lead to missing deadlines or leading to a product that is of lesser value than was originally envisioned. In daily deployment meetings, kick off meetings and more, there is a lot of interaction and commitment to get to the most efficient and timely solution. Each member of the development team can explain the technical intricacies of the challenges they're facing, in more lay language, when the assistance of a less technical colleague is required. This is even more remarkable when you consider many of them are trilingual to a remarkably high level and are comfortable speaking about their work in the languages they know. Despite all the positives already mentioned, there are of course challenges that need to be overcome, which arise in any company, over all industries. However, this is less at Coolvision than other places I've worked, as there is a positive mindset dedicated to the success of every task, big or small. This means patience, understanding and listening from not only me but from everyone, to bridge the gap between what's provided by non-tech colleagues, and its implementation by more technically minded ones. The project managers also do a great deal to contribute to the success of the task at hand, by being the 'buffer' in this way.
Sagi Cohen (Project Manager)- The different perspectives and abilities between the professions help to get a more complete picture of society's needs and ours. The focus groups that are created in each project help to reach the goal, but not exactly in the same way that we initially planned. For example, a complicated development designed to solve a certain problem can be shortened miraculously by a certain change in the definition or in other cases, returning the definition to the "operating table". Collaborations between departments and functions are important for solving problems, simplifying the technological processes, and characterizing the products. Working in several dedicated communication channels: meetings, emails, a task management system and even corridor conversations help to achieve the goals before our eyes.
Finally, during the development life of a product there are many challenges. Cooperation and effective communication are especially important for the company to generate trust, recognition of abilities and attention to details that will lead to a higher quality product and a higher ability to meet deadlines.
This is just a small taste of the quality of the people who take part in CoolVision's activities, as we said at the beginning - every part is important for building a strong, stable, and professional core. There is no doubt that investing in the employee and maintaining excellent communication between the organization's walls make the employee get the most out of himself.
