6:45 - "Taking Over An Existing Project is Like Moving" by Jeremy Scott

Ever move to a new city? Driving around, mechanically that is, is the same: operating a vehicle, red means stop, green go, etc. But getting around... there is the challenge. Once you’ve been there a while and learned your way, its like second nature. Web Professionals are finding themselves doing more and more “refreshes” and “redesigns” and “updates” as of late. Where we know our way around existing projects we start, jumping into someone else’s is like moving to a new city and trying to find the grocery story. Just like we have learn

 how to get around a new neighborhood after a move, we need to learn our way around existing projects if we’re going to take them on. We’ll explore that process so we set ourselves up for success... and maybe set up the next guy for success too!
