A shift in our team
Change management is part of any successful digital transformation and as a company we had to pivot to accomplish this goal. We found new ways of working with our existing engineering team, while bringing in new competencies and partners who would fit with where we wanted to go. Throughout this transformation, we ensured that our trusted work ethic and culture were at the heart of our efforts.
We analyzed current team competencies and did an inventory of missing skillsets. Once we understood our gaps, we began the recruitment process to bring in the required missing expertise, pairing it with our existing SMEs (Subject Matter Experts) in modelling and simulation.
It was important for us to not only focus on technical skills, but also on soft skills such as teamwork, collaboration, agility, and knowledge sharing, which we believe are key to creating high performance teams. Our new engineering department, which includes cloud developers, cybersecurity and AI experts, DevOps specialists and infrastructure architects, coalesced through a world pandemic by finding new ways of working together. The team has been built in a way that every member can learn from, and teach, each other…and the excitement is infectious.
This team reorganization has brought additional expert talent to Presagis, as well as new processes and methods of working. It was exciting to see how the team came together and embraced new SMEs who brought new tools to the table. With new DevOps processes of continuous integration and continuous deployment, this acceleration of skillsets is removing obstacles and propelling the company to new heights.
