The background of team members will have their own mother tongue language. It is important to make sure all communicate in one language, English and as a manager, it is important to make sure the team members understand the task assigned to them.

It is important to understand the process of each department, this will help to eliminate non-value-adding activities and to deliver the right requirements. Also, this will increase the business partnering within the company.

As a manager, it will be good to have weekly catch-ups with staff members, which will increase engagement and listen to their concerns where we can make small changes if necessary to increase productivity.

Effectively managing the team will increase staff satisfaction and organisational productivity.
