Leveling Up A Heroic Team

Leveling Up A Heroic Team

Your application is a dragon and here’s how we’re going to form a successful raiding party to come out victorious (with minimal casualties!). When entering the field of web development, I discovered that the parallels of building a strong multiplayer gaming community and optimizing companies for success were undeniable. Your quest, should you choose to accept it, is to listen to these parallels and use the lessons to strengthen your biggest asset-–your team–-to build a better company and a better web.

    Evolve Change is inevitable so choose to embrace it. External

    and internal needs will change and you will need to change with them.

    Worst thing you can say: “we’ve always done it this

    way and we’re going to change.”
