Do you believe in Standards?

Whenever you're doing something more than once there should be a standard. SSW standards manage our coding, project management, email and phone communication. However, we don't follow them blindly. If someone suggests a better way of doing something, then we change the standard.

Do you agree with them all? Are we missing some? Let us know what you think.

It was a pleasure to have you in the office again. I continue to be impressed by the quality of work and advice you provide. Mark Pigram - Contracts Online http://grosvenor.com.au
