Scott Muncaster , Managing Director of Adactus
How do you equip your staff with skills and knowledge ?
It turns out , if you hire great people then coach and train them well then , it ’ s not actually hard ! We ’ re agile practitioners using , typically , Microsoft technologies – we find people steeped in these disciplines – or at the start of their career , keen to learn them – and go from there . Supported by great marketing , finance and HR professionals and with an external expertise available when needed ( training , leadership coaching , employment law etc .), we are in great shape .
How do you ensure different teams in your organisation work together ?
We have a RTB ( Run the business ) team that does exactly what it says on the tin , they run the business . We continually communicate and work together on projects as well as learnings from each other in all areas of the business . The RTB team learn and collaborate daily to ensure all the departments work together and service our clients efficiently and effectively .
How do you work with other executives within the C-suite to make sure your voice is heard ?
Not by shouting ! I ’ ve never been an ‘ instant impact ’ person – I ’ ve found I ’ m better at building knowledge and relationships over time , based on adding some real value once I understand what my clients or colleagues need . I try to keep things simple , breaking any challenge down to bite-size pieces and finding a good place to start . I ’ m a big believer in momentum too – if we can make a start , the rest of a journey will reveal itself . I waited half my career for agile to become a thing ! x
