Cmgt/410 Week 5 Project Postmortem

Memo
To: Mark Trask and Stakeholders
From: Yavonda Tingle
Date: June 29, 2013
Purpose: Epic Software Post Mortem

Introduction

This was the first chance that the whole group members of the team were required to complete every major component of the Epic Software process. We as a team under took certain activities that require a lot of time for every small return, and then we at times did not manage our resources effectively.

Communication
