  • My company has limited resources to focus on sales and marketing; what are some of the best ways we can utilize our small team with limited budget and bandwidth to have a significant impact on our chances of success?
  • My company is looking to grow and expand our project management (PM) team—what was the biggest challenge in building a team that you encountered?
  • My company is a consumer-focused IoT company, do we need PMs?
