“Making It Right”: A New Smashing Book on Product Management For A Startup World

You've seen this happen a thousand times. An organization struggles with a high level of internal enthusiasm and creative chaos that team leaders don't know how to handle any more.

That's when things usually go south, resulting in failed projects, crushed teams and disappointed clients.

However, fixing these issues can be quite easy — once you understand exactly why they come up. The book will be useful for mobile strategists, developers, designers, and everybody willing to better understand the intricacies of mobile — both technical and market-related.
