  1. 😉 You and Said starting to work together as a team on this assignment? I am really happy to see that but too bad it only started in W13?

    Can you imagine what all 25 of you could have achieved if you had started working together as a team from the BEGINNING?

    I really hope to see a really well done “Lessons Learned” posting before we are done….
