The Romanian IT&C industry, an industry which is continuing its upward trend, currently has around 80.000 specialists. The biggest players are clustered around Bucharest, Cluj and Iasi and they are continuing to recruit local talent. However all of these companies have the same challenges.
The IT industry continues to be a booming one. An area that is constantly innovating and attracts the best talents. As this industry continues to grow, apart from the need for specialists in various technologies, there is also a need for people to manage these specialists. Team Leaders, Managers or Project Managers that know how to effectively use the talents and resources of the company.
There is an old chestnut saying “if a tree falls into a forest and nobody hears it, did it happen?” Following this saying, if we don’t talk about cultural differences, does this mean they don’t exist?
We have constantly opening new offices and recruit (put together) more international teams than ever in the human history to follow global opportunities. And this is why cross cultural interaction are of ever growing interest for us.
When you are in a managerial role you can seldom say that you don’t have enough to do: analyzing various areas, developing business plans, setting goals, monitoring performance, solving conflicts, making decisions, coaching subordinates etc.
