So this is all about my busy schedule in the rest of one month and a week.These are different projects and a lot of learning.If you are in new organization,the major challenge is how quickly you can understand the tool and system of that organization.The 2nd important challenge is the stakeholders.How better you can understand the needs of each stakeholders. The solution for all challenges is the ADP.Read again and again the materials of ADP,it will help you to finish your project successfully. In October I’ve also visited Zanzibar Island.Wait for my next blog to know about this beautiful Island.
