Carles Costa showed strong growth, self-reflection, hard-working, intensive self-learning through books/videos/trainings, being clever and pushing hard to develop his technical skills, combined with a strong interest to be part of the bigger picture of MCON and MCG, beside doing his daily work. That’s also why he was already years ago part of the Local Direction Circle (LDC).
Carles will be involved into overall strategy topics in his position as Associate Director with a strong focus on China and Asia in general. He will be responsible for team culture, team management, working style, project process methodologies, and resource planning. Furthermore he will be part of the quarterly MCON Tech-Meeting where technical directions and paths are discussed. Beside his current technical expertise, Carles will need to learn, understand, and think like an entrepreneur, which you have to be in such a position. Understanding the correlation between R&D, paid projects, billable team members, costs, and the drive for innovation, and their balance to each other.
Carles was a strong initiator and driver of the DevOps culture within MCG which gave us a good advantage over other competitors. It also shows how important it is to have the right interesting projects, in this case FairGarage, which allowed him to experiment and develop innovative solutions together with Ruben as Senior Architect and others from CLOUD.
The step making him an Associate Director helps to give him a title which is important for his customer contacts, proof of what he achieved, and for us having a trusted team leader who takes care about the team – officially – customers, partners and projects.
Congratulations Carles for this very important step of your professional life!
For some people a team building is having a dinner together in a fine restaurant followed by session of KTV. For others it is sitting in a hotel conference room enjoying small canapes and coffee. The most adventurous ones will venture outdoors for a day and share a picnic together.
We rule all that out! A couple of weeks ago we had a Team Building never to forget! The Team Leaders of MCON GROUP China gathered together for 3 days at the beautiful beach of the Beijing Sailing Centre in Beidaihe. All enjoyed not only the sea breeze, but also awell prepared set of workshops which encouraged sharing of experiences and working towards common goals. This not only gave everyone the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop content, but also provided a platform to express individual views, opinions and suggestions for successful business.
Not all the time was spent on workshops, the team leaders also got the chance to go sailing together, practicing other water sports, enjoying delicious local food, on top of outstanding camping right on the beach! We still remember those amazing sunrises!

Falling on the 5th day of the 5th month according to Chinese lunar calendar, the Dragon Boat Festival, also known as Duanwu Festival, is one of great significance. It has been held annually for more than 2,000 years and is notable for its educational influence. The festival was also celebrated as “Poets’ Day” in honor of Qu Yuan, who is known as China’s first poet. Chinese citizens traditionally throw bamboo leaves filled with cooked rice into the water and it is also customary to eat tzungtzu and rice dumplings. And that’s what we will do here in China in the next 3 days! Happy Dragon Boat Festival!
