Why do projects go awry, even when you’ve checked all the boxes? Sometimes, “common wisdom” actually leads to failure. In other words, what if the customer isn’t always right?
I sat down with project guru, Shane Anastasi to talk through well-meaning myths that may be sabotaging your project teams, including being on time and on budget.
As Shane puts it, in the consumer world if a customer wants another sandwich, you make them another sandwich. But, that doesn’t work when you have thousands of dollars on the line in a services project, and the customer thinks they can hop behind the counter to make the sandwich themselves
Learn how to take control of client-facing projects, free your team from the traps that sink them, and hear how myth-busting can accelerate your success.
