How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

On the Certification team, I develop exams and study content for our end users. To ensure that our exams are valid, I work with almost every team embracing their expertise and industry knowledge into the development process. It takes continuous interdepartmental collaboration to keep exam content accurate as the Relativity platform evolves.
