Admit it. You can’t find a thing on your company intranet. The search sucks. The navigation sucks. Anything you can find, you don’t trust.

If a framework requires a lot of education before implementing then time and costs will stack before the project even gets off the ground.Take a look at the video below for some does and don’ts related to framework selection. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.
