Currently, the entire world is severely hit due to the current pandemic and with consideration of employee safety and the Govt directive, we have taken precautionary measures to ensure the business continuity for clients.
The team at KNOWARTH has been working exclusively from home for nearly four weeks now. Given the uncertainty that prevailed as KNOWARTH Business Continuity team took some steps actioning our business continuity plan, we are proud of what we have achieved within such a short period of time.
Over 95% were able to get set up and work within the first two days. This was surprising to us as more than half of the team was unaccustomed to working from home and had very little experience doing so until this time.
The key to this entire endeavor was to ensure communication remains as seamless as possible. Face to face communication is a best tool for better understanding and productivity. At KNOWARTH we execute all projects in agile methodology. Most basic rule of agile projects is its efficiency, in-time, quick and direct communication.
In the beginning, I felt that it would be extremely difficult to avoid communication gaps due to remote working. However, the team of 150+ professionals made it look extremely easy. We have daily connect morning meetings where teams spell out their accomplishment, daily ongoing tasks and blocker or dependency they are facing.
We are making best use of resources that KNOWARTH has, i.e Google Meet and Slack to reduce communication gaps. Team is ensuring that they should always be approachable through these communication mediums.
The last few weeks were very crucial for some of our major programs like ABCLI, Ubicquia, ETAN, Cloudoffis, IFL, Advent and there were major milestones to deliver. We expected delays in this, particularly related to cross-functional team coordination and communication while we are working remotely.
But because of the strong level of commitment, collaboration and excellent team work by everyone, we continue Delivering Excellenceand there was absolutely no impact on any of our deliverables to our customers across the globe.
Customer managements are praising the effort that KNOWARTH team is putting together to make their vision success:
“ Congratulations everyone, it was a superlative effort and Stellar performance by all of you. The delivery quality was good hence made it easy to go live in such a crunched timeliness. ”
