Book review: Hit Refresh by Satya Nadella

Hit Refresh book reviewHi Readers!

Today I want to share a special book review with you. The book is called Hit Refresh and is written by Satya Nadella. As long time readers know I write book reviews on Project and Project Management every now and then.

What is a Work Breakdown Structure? – Guest post
