How To Build Effective Teams
By Christine Comaford-Lynch

Christine Comaford-Lynch Great people can make a mediocre product a success. But mediocre people can make a great product a disaster.

Experience has taught me that you don't have to have a great product. A good product is ok. Great people make the difference. Fact: You need a great team in order to succeed. Fiction: You need to have that great team in place from the get-go. Building teams takes time.

"At a recent WITI Boston event, I met a former client from 10 years ago when I worked for another company. We sat together at the meeting and got re-acquainted. Since then, my former client has introduced me to several IT executives at their firm to generate interest in our services, which may lead to new business. This demonstrates that networking and participating in WITI events can have very positive results...both professionally and personally."
