Recommendation &
Conclusion
•Murray should discuss about the email with the device
central team and plan their strategy.

•The CS3 should include generic images to avoid legal
issues. They should obtain legal permissions then and
include those in the next versions.

•The other problem was improper communication between
the software developing teams, which can be solved by
regular meeting between these teams and open
communication.

•The macromedia employers should be employed in
different teams so that they assimilate with adobe’s
culture.
