From the schoolyard to coordinating leading architects

2022.11.04.

After graduating and finding our first job, we experience how we can put what we have learned into practice. This is when we realize that we will have to face very different challenges from the ones you thought you’d encountered in the classroom. This is when you need the humility, the open-mindedness and the eagerness that Csenge has in abundance.

Csenge’s observant and industrious behavior was immediately noticed by her colleagues, so she did not have to wait long for the opportunity to knock on her door. One of our senior architects, Ági, who is already experienced in project management, saw Csenge’s potential and quickly brought her on board for a project related to organizational development.

As some of her colleagues had been involved in organizational development before, Csenge got an idea of what it was like to be part of a project like that, so she accepted the challenge without any hesitation.

Several other colleagues had been working on this project, but it did not bring any particular results, so the goal was to complete the sample plans in a way that would be mutually reinforcing with our internal BIM developments. According to Csenge, the project itself seemed to be a tough challenge, but the proactivity of the participants was incredibly motivating. Little did she know at that time, that she would have a bigger role in this project than she had previously expected, because the four project managers were so busy that they were unable to coordinate the project.

Her colleagues came up with the idea that Csenge should coordinate the project. Just to make it clear: a young architect gets the opportunity to coordinate colleagues with more than twenty years of experience behind them. No wonder that at this point someone gets frightened of a task like that.

Our colleagues Toma and Vera, who are responsible for organizational development, assured Csenge that she will receive all the support she needs to successfully coordinate the team.

Needless to say, Csenge accepted the challenge and made the project a success.

 

She did so by coordinating her team, so they were able to create the standards for our architectural projects. Furthermore, by collecting the projects from the members of her team, Csenge created a quasi-manual of our standards, which was then compiled into the project deliverable.

In addition to her other tasks, Csenge considers this one as a great adventure and she is honored to try herself in such a task as a newcomer. In her report she emphasized that this project has given her a wealth of experience, both at a professional and a personal level. The task made her get out of her comfort zone, because she had to hold her senior colleagues accountable, she had to assign tasks and firmly express her opinion in order to create a quality result. All of this naturally led to a closer relationship between the team members and ever since she recalls the memories of their collaboration with content.

 

Csenge’s story demonstrates the key to our improvement very well: If any of our colleagues is open and looking for an opportunity to develop, then we can guarantee that. And what is even more important, we provide not only the opportunities, but the adequate professional background and support to make your project a success.
