QA Fest 2019. Катерина Шепелєва та Інна Оснач. Що українцям потрібно знати про свої софт скіли

26 views

Published on

Маючи досвід роботи з іноземними замовниками і колегами, а також вивчаючи культурні особливості жителів інших країн, ми якось поставили собі за мету з'ясувати, якими українців бачать іноземці, чи потрібно їм підлаштовуватись під нашу манеру спілкування, чи є щось, що вони зовсім не можуть прийняти.
Поділимося з вами результатами цієї затії, а також поговоримо про:
- те, що потрібно знати українцям про свої софт скіли,
- то, як відрізняються софт скіли українців і жителів кількох інших країн,
- важливість софт скілів для успішних комунікацій з іноземними колегами,
- важливість софт скілів для просування по кар'єрі.

  19. 19. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019 “Ukrainians speak very directly. They don’t use the normal polite “hedges” in their speech that Americans are used to. I found it to be very efficient for business/project management. They will only commit to things that are possible or they can complete in comparison to people from some other countries. Our team in Ukraine loved to tell us no. They can say no when it’s no, they can voice their opinion.”
  20. 20. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Peach vs Coconut cultures QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019 Are you a peach or a coconut? • Kurt Lewin, a culture specialist, came up with a delicious classification: he explained cultural differences by separating them into peach and coconut categories. https://creativecultureint.com/peach-or-coconut/
  21. 21. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Peach vs Coconut cultures QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019 • “Peach” cultures - people are easy-going, smile at each other, politely talk to everyone and are helpful. • It might take more effort to befriend them – their privacy is protected by a shell inside. For e.g. America and Japan.
  22. 22. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Peach vs Coconut cultures QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019 • “Coconut" cultures - people don't engage in conversations easily, rarely smile at people they don't know, keep to themselves and aren't perceived as being particularly friendly. • However, when you get to know them, they change completely: initial coldness changes into loyal friendship. For eg. Russians, Germans, Ukrainians.
  23. 23. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Examples QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019 • “Ukrainians are not really good at making small talks  “ • “They don’t like to talk about personal things, tend to be a bit suspicious (don’t trust people easily) and keep it work related.” • “For Ukrainians it’s less accepted to talk about non-work activities with colleagues with some exceptions of course.” • “For Americans, it’s totally normal to ask about kids or what you did on the weekend. Ukrainians take more time to “warm up” to strangers” • "We had to learn the colleagues sometimes to speak up and say something was wrong in what we mentioned, but through the years that has turned in a positive way"
  24. 24. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Attitude to work QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019

Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Responsibility and commitment QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019 • Want to meet deadlines, committed to deliver what was promised, hard-working and well-motivated, may work after work • Work is delivered according to procedures, but also when necessary in a practical way in order to meet the objectives • IT workers in UA feel more responsibility toward their work, ready to have fewer holidays • Often use only 2 weeks of leave and if a person works for 3-4 years in a company, he or she can accumulate 1 or two months of vacations, which remained unused
  26. 26. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Passion and engagement QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019 • Very concerned about work: have pet projects, have IT as hobby, attend conferences, various events • Ambitious, easy going, flexible, relaxed • Usually interesting project is preferable than high salary • More tech oriented rather than business oriented
  27. 27. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Education level QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019 • Quality standards of both Developers and QA’s are high • Colleagues are of a high educated level and eager to learn, dedication to the team and to the project • The level of English is very different per colleague – some have high level of speaking, where others have a lower level
  28. 28. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Involvement in meetings QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019 • During meetings smartphone is more attractive than the discussions going on 😉 • Playing chess via phone • When nobody responds to a question then it means that everybody agrees or has no questions (or not listening)

  30. 30. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY A lot of English in work affects everyday life: we use a lot of English terms and business speak clichés (like sync-up, ping, extra mile, etc.) QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019
  31. 31. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Start working late - mostly because of US customers but also because it's not very widespread in our country to start work early (in other countries people may start at 6-7-8 am easily, cafes serve breakfast from early hours, “Early Bird” prices for parking, etc.) QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019
  32. 32. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Men shake hands when they meet (even if you have to shake 10 hands in a row) excluding women (in Australia and US no one shakes hands, except with clients or meeting new people, but shaking hands includes women) QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019
  33. 33. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY There are a lot of switchers from other spheres. Testing is the easiest entrance into IT and there are a lot of QA engineers without computer education QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019
  34. 34. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Smileys QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019
  35. 35. Тема доклада Тема доклада Тема доклада WITH PASSION TO QUALITY Smileys QA CONFERENCE #1 IN UKRAINE KYIV 2019 In the Ukrainian/Russian keyboard layout, one has to press Shift+6 to type a colon. It is significantly more awkward than having it under a little finger in the second row in the English keyboard layout. If we smile, we would type ")", if it makes us laugh, we would use ")))". It looks more elegant and simplistic than :):):) or heaven forbid :-):-):-) and it is considerably faster to type in any keyboard layout.
