If you've ever sent out RFPs (Request for Proposals), you know about the wide range of bids that will come in response. Before you make a decision, there are a number of things to take into consideration when reviewing your options. The level of experience should be at the top of your list, followed by things like ethical practices, standards and behavior, organization, and timeliness. Such factors add to the differences in project estimates, but there's another factor that shouldn't be overlooked. The type of company bidding on the project can also make a significant difference on an estimate.
Curiosity is a good thing. It triggers a desire to know and experience as much as possible. Such is the case with Parthenon's Senior QA, Jon Hance.

While designed to prevent outsiders from getting access to our private information, passwords aren't completely foolproof. Create a simple password and hackers can easily crack it. Enter a complicated one, and you may forget it and have to reset your password anyway. It's a huge hassle that most of us would like to avoid, but thanks to cyber attacks we don't have much of a choice. But what if I said you could do away with passwords altogether and still keep your information secure?
Like many boys, Tim's childhood dream was to be superman, but that quickly changed when he realized it wasn't an attainable goal. Little did he know, he'd eventually become one of Parthenon's supermen of design.
When a project comes into being, you can count on supporters and dissenters. This comes about because at its root, a project constitutes some form of change. On the one hand there are people who openly embrace change, while on the other hand there are other people who may not react as favorably. This could be because they see change as a threat to their status, lifestyle, stability or they fear a bigger workload. Regardless of which side they're on, both the former and latter can hold significant sway over the course and outcome of any project. These people are the stakeholders.
