How - And Why - To Choose The Best For Your Web Needs

The project was progressing more or less on schedule, but the Project Manager hadn’t developed a project plan and hadn’t facilitated the “Daily Touch Point Meetings” that are widely accepted as being a “best practice” in projects of this size. As a part of my role as the Testing Manager, I had been asked to organize these meetings and to put together an overall Project Plan.
