Elaborate a time when you were not successful and what you learned from it.

Fairly standard for the most part. The group project was the most unexpected and, for me, difficult due to my reserved nature.

They asked me pretty typical interview questions, nothing too technical since it was for a program management role.

1) How will you convince others to adapt to a change? 2) About my experience in saas/on-premise releases. 3) How will you handle the friction(if any) between you and another member? 4) How do you make introverts/less participating members to speak during a meeting? 5) Agile process.

Q: What are your weaknesses?
