Hi, my name is Katarina.

I am a new member of the TAXAPA team. Let me introduce myself. My hometown is Zilina, but I have been living in Bratislava for eleven years.

I studied economics at the secondary school, Human resources, and personnel management at the university.

During my professional career, I worked for various companies. I gained most of my experience as a sales support in Slovnaft a.s. and as an economic assistant in Doprastav a.s. My responsibility was arranging the whole process of agreed sales and running the economic department of the construction site.

Walking in nature and exploring new places with my family and friends are my favorite activities. I am interested in books, mainly crime stories, report literature, and children’s literature.

I started working for TaXaPa in October. My responsibility will be the administration’s and project support (Project Management Office PMO)

I am looking forward to new experiences and team cooperation on the current and planned projects.

The last year was a special one. Our energy was thoroughly oriented to assist our customers to overcome challenges and transform obstacles into new business opportunities. 

Following our vision: 

What stands in the way becomes the WAY.

We are pleased that in 2021 we excelled further and delivered the fit solutions for 175+ customer requirements.

We believe we will cross 200 soon (100%+ vs. 2020).  

To fit the constantly changing business environment, we had to upgrade our service operations to a new level.

All this could happen because of our excellent teamwork, positive attitude, and customer-oriented approach.  

We invest in our people; we provide them the proper training, tools, and trust at work to build something unique.

Customer success is our victory and the way we want to go further.

During the summer season, we joined camping activities and we were a part of VTOP *Vychodosloveký Tábor Ochrancov Prírody http://www.vstop.sk/.

It was a great time, relaxing with family without access to modern technologies and focusing on the most important asset, our family and friends.

We, in TAXAPA, want to hold the right balance between the workload and personal life for all our employees. We believe that happy employees are equal to happy customers.

Things are getting better with us!

MoSCoW

The MoSCoW prioritization technique is our recommended way to prioritize acceptance criteria, product changes, or quality criteria in managing projects.

It is a precise, straightforward and effective tool to interact with stakeholders about what is guaranteed to be delivered by a project.

MoSCoW stands for:

Must have (essential and critical for the business)
Should have (important, but not critical for the business)
Could have (useful, but not critical for business)
Won’t have (out of scope, but important to record)

For us in TAXAPA, the MoSCoW technique is preferable assistance in defining scope tolerances, supporting the Prince2® principle

“The manage by exception.”

We want to propose to our clients always best practices supporting the right tool and technics.

PRINCE2®

We in TAXAPA are keen to apply the PRINCE2® methodology for project management. PRINCE2 fits our company’s opinion of how to manage IT projects precisely.  

For instance, we always consider six aspects (Scope, Plan, Risk, Quality, Benefits, and Cost) with reasonable tolerances to decide the right path to go. On the other hand, Prince2® principles and themes assist in establishing the project tools and company benchmark.  

We are constantly:  

looking at the suitable business case, 

learning from experience,

establishing project team and responsibilities, 

cutting the projects to manageable stages and plan them properly,  

providing project tolerances and fitting project controls,

managing projects products with a focus on the best quality, 

tailoring projects according to the size, people involved, and environment. 

With Prince2, we found the appropriate tools for managing risk, controlling changes, and communicating effectively.  

Because we understand that the business world is constantly evolving, and project management must adapt to it. We refresh our knowledge. We recently completed training and certification of the newest PRINCE2® 2017 Foundation and Practitioner successfully, and we want to do it further.

Product Management is the backbone of product/project success. 

In TAXAPA, we attended product management courses and product management certifications to scale our skills and understanding of product development, strategy, pricing, and further. 

We aim to apply gathered knowledge to assist in technology-based customer projects from the product perspective, especially in evaluating pricing and licensing approaches. 

We patiently follow our company vision:

Excellence is a matter of steps, education, and training.

Functional Requirement Analysis (80-20 Rule)

Functional Requirement Analysis is an integral part of the top-down process of translating system-level requirements into detailed functional and performance design criteria. Our goal in TAXAPA is to learn, test, or adapt existing principles to improve our skills and offer our customers the best outcomes.  

There is a great principle, which we use to understand which functional variables have the highest cumulative effects on the application’s usage.    

The Pareto principle, also knows as the “80-20 rule,” says that, for many events, approximately 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

Mr. Vilfredo Pareto (1848-1923) was a genial Italian engineer and sociologist who observed 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population. Later, the same phenomena (“80-20 rule”) were detected in different spheres of the everyday world. 

We in TAXAPA become enthusiasts of the 80/20 rule. We developed a part of our methodology on it, and it works immensely. We apply Pareto Charts and procedures mainly in requirements analysis, and it helps our customers visualize what matters most.  

We recommend our customers the right path to go.
