Have you ever found yourself frustrated with what your team has been able to accomplish and wondering if they even care? If you have, the solution may have absolutely nothing to do with caring, but everything to do with two major communication breakdowns!

20: Doctor or an Architect - Determining Business Needs

An architect is proactive and commands premium rates. They offer the health plan that works for the long term, not the Advil for the latest pain. What that means for...
