Lenka Pincot is an agile transformation leader for Ceska Sporitelna, a major bank in the Central Eastern Europe region. After spending the past three years in the United States, she recently relocated back to her hometown of Prague in the Czech Republic.

Lenka, how did you get into project management? I was a junior business analyst on an organizational transformation initiative. In the middle of the project, our project manager suddenly left. This inspired me to invest myself in the project management discipline and explore its success factors. Project management became a crucial — and favorite — part of all my further job assignments.

What do you love most about the work? When things get done and people grow on their project journeys, including me.

What do you find most challenging or frustrating? Every project is a challenge on its own, but I guess I chose my profession right because I really do love challenges!

What's your proudest professional achievement? I'm happy to list my biggest projects on my resume, but frankly speaking that is not what makes me proud. I see the biggest value in having opportunities to help teams to cooperate, to establish language between business and IT experts, and to connect people and find synergies. I’m the most proud when I create inspiring environments that lead to achievements.

What's the best piece of advice you've received or can share? There can never be enough listening and communication.

How has helped you in your work and career? I always enjoy being on the site because I truly appreciate the enormous accumulation of expertise, networking potential, and valuable interactions. I have applied the insights of others in my job numerous times.

What interests or hobbies do you have outside work? My hobbies were gradually pushed out of my life by my three kids, but I keep fighting and occasionally read books, go to movies, and do fitness.

Favorite TV show, artist or movie? True Detective because I’m interested in mystery and I love problem-solving, and Hell's Kitchen because I’m interested in how the teamwork between strangers is born.

Best vacation? Any vacation!

Thank you, Lenka!
