Session Description

This session will assist the in house developer in understanding when to bring an outside development company in to assist with a project. Once that company is brought into assist with the project, how to interact with that company’s project manager and developer. This would include how to present the project, give your ideas from both the person that will be an end user as well as a developer of the system or application. Using lessons learned on the benefits and pitfalls on developing the back end and user interface based on both perspectives.

Much of the challenge of working with a FileMaker partner is also working with the system users. Learning to manage their expectation while working through a new solution is a skill. I give my partner time to work and let the users know that work is being done.
