“Critical thinking”, “individuality” and “revolutionary thinking” used to be the buzzwords that made me feel empowered. However, after working in a corporate environment for too long, you became so tied-down in bureaucracy and red tape that you could never achieve anything while being stuck in the same cycle.
A need to change encouraged me to look for opportunities that would enable me to learn and develop as I go rather than having a manual thrown at me and expected to follow it to the letter.
Adelphi Digital is that place. Joining its Canberra office as project manager, I’m encouraged to challenge the status quo and push through the boundaries of what has been done to really create something new and exciting. Every day has so far presented a new challenge to learn and new opportunities that keep you engaged and excited.
One thing that sticks out in my mind as different to where I have worked before is Adelphi Digital’s approach to processes. My previous experience was going by the book and deviation equalled failure. So, I’m excited by the prospect of working at Adelphi Digital where the process forms a guide rather than instructions, and you are encouraged to take the frame and apply your own style to it so to speak.
At Adelphi Digital, we follow our proprietary project methodology – Agile Iterative Discovery. At its core, it’s an iterative and agile project process that provides a framework you use to form the basis and then adapt it to your style and how your client works. So, no two projects are run identically but they still follow the same basic structure. This means that you can get the most out of the project team and the client every time as you aren’t bound to doing everything one way.
After spending three months working alongside other project managers to learn the ropes and develop my own style for my projects, I have been offered an opportunity to travel to Singapore and discover the culture of our office there.
So far, it has been an amazing experience, which has reinforced in my mind that Adelphi Digital is the place to be. Regardless of where the office is, the team always works in a collaborative environment, and teammates are willing to lend a helping hand when you need it.
In addition, the established processes allow you to grow and develop your own working style whilst still giving you clear direction no matter where you are or who you are working with.
If you’re looking for somewhere that will encourage creativity and individuality, provide amazing opportunities and leave you feeling a sense of accomplishment at the end of every day, Adelphi Digital is definitely where you want to be.
