Ability to choose a job based on the future "boss" is great. So we invited our Team Leaders to a virtual cup of coffee and asked them a few questions for you. And the bosses suddenly became people of flesh and blood and helped to complete the idea of our corporate culture.
ANTONÍN PAVELKA, ERP CZ Services
When I get up for work, I look forward to: New challenges that we deal with daily in the team. I like it when the daily routine goes without unnecessary activities and it is possible to engage in more interesting project activities.
My career path: I started as a database programmer. Since 2002 I have been dealing mainly with SAP systems. I started as a consultant for one module (SAP CO) and ended up as an SAP architect and manager of a SAP specialist team.
I am responsible for: I am primarily responsible for ensuring that the customer is satisfied with our delivery. But I also feel responsible for the inner atmosphere in the team, so that we are able to perform above standard.
The most amazing part of my job is: If we can solve a problem that lay "on the table" for a long time as a challenge and where there was no clear technical solution.
The biggest challenge I faced: The division of the SAP HR system within the division of the concern on the customer's side. We received one functional SAP and the output was 3 functional SAP systems with relevant data, including connection to the new infrastructure.
The most memorable moment in my career: Feedback from the customer that he did not believe that we were able to deliver the project mentioned above in the promised time and quality.
I expect people to: Independence, proactive approach, to not be afraid to design new and untested solutions, which are often beneficial. Willingness to fill in for a colleague and learn new things.
When leading people I consider important: Confidence in the employee that he or she will take on the assigned tasks responsibly. I don't like micro-management and I don't practice it. I do not evaluate the work intensity, but the efficiency and the result.
When I’m not working: I'm thinking about work, I'm a bit of a workaholic. 😊
