While the smartphone's core mechanics have remained the same over the years, manufacturers have tried to bring their own changes to shape the consumer view of what features a modern-day smartphone should have, such as wireless charging, a notch, and the controversial removal of the headphone jack.

While studying for my Project Management Professional (PMP) certification, a statistic that stood out to me was that nearly 17% of software projects fail.

You likely now know that the most common project management styles used in software development are Scrum or Kanban. But, software development isn't merely about being Agile. Though similar, both methodologies have key differences that require special attention as well as overlap in processes (recently I heard about "Scrumban," which was how a client described their delivery model). With any management principles, there are different interpretations of the "rules." The key to the successful implementation of any methodology is the practical work of a project manager.

Starting a new job is stressful. There are so many new people to meet, names to remember, procedures to learn, routines to follow, and policies to understand which can make those first few days and weeks feel pretty overwhelming.

We need our team members to consider different aspects of our company culture, workplace procedures, and all the activities that take place during and after work.
