This was really, really powerful – and a “must watch” for anyone who struggles with effective project management.
Some of the highlights:
- 10% In Reserve: This is a brilliant strategy where you suggest that whatever type of project you are doing, ask the client to mentally set aside an additional 10% of the budget to account for shiny objects, changes and new directions that might arise during the project. And if you don’t use it – woohoo! Your client now has a budget surplus!
- The Magic of the Change Order: This is a place where lots of agencies get sensitive – we quoted them $XXXX – don’t we have to honor that?!?! No way. The change order is the agency (and the client’s best friend).
- The Power of 6 Minutes: Chris will show you how just 6 minutes more planning saves 120 minutes in labor. That is a phenomenal ROI!
There is more, but I think you should probably just watch it on your own!
