Master-class in the webinar format on the issue: “How to work in a project team”
On June 18, 2018, a webinar from the EY Academy of Business passed for the participants of the Student Energy Challenge competition organized by Shell Kazakhstan and the KAZENERGY Association that revealed one of the topical and interesting issues for each of us: How to work in a project team.
This webinar is the first development event in the framework of the Student Energy Challenge competition for participating teams. There are two more webinars and one full two-day training, which the organizers will inform about as the teams go through the stages of the competition.

The webinar was conducted by Oxana Shintemirova, a teacher consultant and business tutor of the EY Academy of Business, which also specializes in credit projects, financial analysis, project management and risk management. The participants of the webinar had an opportunity to get acquainted with the principles of teamwork, interaction peculiarities and key factors of the team's effectiveness.


During the webinar students actively showed interest in the topic, asking questions online. Such training activities allow you to flexibly plan your time, connect to training from any location, having not only a stationary PC, but also through mobile devices. In accordance with the declared stages of the contest, the next webinar for counterparts on the theme “Creating an effective presentation” is planned to be held in mid-July 2018. At the same time, we remind that the winners of the Student Energy Challenge are awaited by prizes from Shell Kazakhstan (up to 10,000 USD) and a two-day training course NXplorers (Astana), developed by Shell experts to develop critical thinking skills and comprehensive problem solution among young people.

“Participation in the webinar “How to work in a project team” was very informative. Despite the fact that some of the information was known before the session, the lecture allowed introducing new techniques of interaction between team members. The cardinal difference between this information session and others on this topic is the recommendation to achieve a balance between strict regulation of the spheres of activity of each member of the team and the freedom of action of each and individual responsibility. Briefly summarizing our impression of the webinar: the main indicator of its usefulness is our desire to immediately introduce the knowledge into the work process.”

“The webinar on teamwork seemed very interesting and useful. Although at first sight it may seem that the issues and skills discussed are familiar to each person on an intuitive level, in fact, being unfamiliar with the basics that were discussed in this webinar, the team may fail in the implementation of the project. Especially useful was the visual differentiation between the analysis of the project and the analysis of the planned work on the project. Thanks to this webinar, our team can structure the planned work with the help of a hierarchical structure of work, which in our view will significantly increase productivity.”

“On the webinar “How to work in a project team?”, five main points were considered. All items were separately explained. There was a full understanding of the goals and objectives of the team and how to work with the project team effectively. As we understood, in the team, most importantly, there should be full trust and you need to listen to each other’s opinion. We must learn to prevent unhealthy conflicts, transform them into a constructive dialogue and respect the relations in the team. There are stages in the development of the team, for which they must develop and strive to be highly effective people in the same team.”
