Out of adversity comes opportunity – an inspiring sharing from Vinh Tran

June 19, 2020

Today, we are continuing our series featuring Employee of the Year winners. This award is held annually to honour individuals who demonstrate a high level of competence and innovation in project management.

We have met Tri Nguyen and Tu Diep in the previous articles, now, let’s get to know Vinh Tran – one of the outstanding Project Managers at NashTech!

From the very first steps that Vinh took on his career path, he always wanted to have a job which offers a wide range of opportunities to work directly with global customers. He also wanted to work with excellent co-workers. When he found NashTech, Vinh Tran believes this was fate.

Vinh Tran joined NashTech in September 2013 as a Senior Developer and he says he had everything he needed here. Two years later, Vinh worked as Team Leader for a big project, and he soon became the manager.

I gained many knowledge about working process, how to deal with customers, how to solve emerging issues in effective ways. During this time, Phil Went, Long Pham, Vu Do & other colleagues supported me a lot. They were the one who lead me on this path of management.

On his journey, Vinh had to confront many deadlocks and negative thoughts. Sometimes, he even wondered if he had made the wrong decision. Vinh shared that had it not been for his supportive and professional mentors who are always there to help him, he would not have overcome the darkest time.

A hard-working and humble Project Manager

With his experience, Vinh Tran was assigned to manage many other projects and programs. He always tries his best to gain more knowledge by taking international certificates and Master degree, all by himself. So far, Vinh Tran has accomplished:

  • Master of Computer Science
  • Project Management Professional (PMP)
  • Professional Scrum Master 1
  • Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)

He believes that good project managers should possess certain qualities. First of all, project managers should understand what their organization’s strategies are so that they can execute the project effectively, which aligns with the firm’s mission. Managing a project means that the person in charge needs to be aware of the problems, both currently and potentially, and clearly define the solutions to address those issues.

Moreover, Vinh shared that the most important thing to bear in mind is the way you work with colleagues. Proactivity and team spirit are the key elements for the success of a Project Manager.

People usually expect to work with someone who is supportive and easy to work with. As such, rather than giving commands to your teammates, advice and constructive comments are more preferred – Vinh shared.
