Different climate and culture, but one goal: to deliver

Meet Robin, who works at our Dhaka office in Bangladesh. Robin has been with the Bangladesh office for 10 years and he is proud to say that over time the understanding of Danish architectural traditions and work methods has become rather extraordinary in Dhaka.

 Makes daily routines a Best Practice

Robin is a team member of Brahe & Bestec – eseebase’ office based in Bangladesh. He has a good amount of experience in the field of architecture. He is a Project Manager and a personal contact when modelling tasks from Denmark are planned and distributed among the team members in Bangladesh. He knows the drill.

 “When I get to the office in the morning I go through my e-mails from my colleagues in Denmark and from my Project Planning Manager in Bangladesh. And then I plan for the day. I have some preplanned tasks for my team but each morning I have to consider if something has come up that requires special attention. When the planning is all set, I distribute the tasks and connect with the team members if anything needs further clarification and knowledge sharing. For me, a good day at work is when we have all the information we need, the right resources are planned for me and it’s not too hot!”

 Catching up with the team in Denmark

Due to the time difference between Bangladesh (GMT+6) and Denmark (GMT+1), the Bangladesh office is 5 hours ahead of the Danish office.

This means that in the Dhaka office it is normally a good time to connect with the colleagues in Denmark after lunch.

“We have lunch at the premises, which saves us a lot of time and helps us stay focused during our work day. Once I’ve finished lunch I normally connect with the Project Main Responsible back in Denmark to follow up on things. Day-to-day practicalities we cover over e-mail or Skype, but if we’re about to start a new project we “get together” in a virtual meeting room setting. For example, right now we are working on a pilot project for the UK, which is a new market for us all. That’s a situation where we need to work very closely and get together on a regular basis.”

 Understanding Danish culture is absolutely vital

The Danish architectural traditions are very different from those in Bangladesh because of the difference in climate and culture. Understanding these inter-cultural differences is crucial in order to deliver as promised.

 “We train all new employees. They have to go through a one month training and pass an exam to be on the team. But a lot of the understanding also comes from experience and from getting to know the Danish culture and architectural traditions. Some of that requires sitting together and getting to know each other. You work differently with a person you’ve already met and connected with. I have been in Denmark to meet the people we work with – to get to know them and to get training and a deeper understanding of the Danish approach.”
