  1. Great Reference Guide

    Posted by Anonymous on Feb 10th, 2010

    I encourage consultants that work on my projects to get basic reference books like this MM guide or the Effective SD book so that they can quickly get a grasp on what they need to do. These functional books are invaluable to a successful implementation.
