Beyond Product: Designing a cross collaborative team workflow

All smiles : Tamanna Team from our Dubai office

Setting the sails right : Our Why

A vision of having a collective alignment can sustain to achieve a well thought comprehensive product experience for our customers and stakeholders.

Establishing a new collaborative process can be chaotic in the beginning, especially when creating it with people that haven’t physically met. However, it tends to benefit teams in the long run:

  • It solidifies trust between the team;
  • Teams become well acquainted with each other, their roles, methods, and processes;
  • Promotes transparency and accountability on goals and objectives;
  • Keeps us well informed about the strategy, ever changing behaviours and trends;
  • Keeps us aligned with company vision and OKRs.
