Projects that lack PM hard, enough range to clean up the vertical, what kind of way to go into the tragedy like the following article.
Currently, there are many brothers and sisters setting up teams, opening companies, most of them are outsourcing (web and mobile app) Most of them are small and medium sized companies, 30 ~ 50 people are already magnificent.
