Matthew Encina and I will be answering YOUR questions about dealing with clients, leading bigger teams, and overall project management in this exclusive one-hour webinar. Buckle your seatbelts!
Hey guys! Ben Burns here, and I gotta be honest. I learned project management the hard way. Back in the day, I lost a few clients because I was so unorganized, which resulted in losing a pretty significant amount of revenue (read: dollar bills, ya'll).
I knew it was a problem, and I knew I had to get things squared away before hiring anyone to work with me, so I hunted for a good solution. I pretty much tried every method under the sun (Scrum, Lean, Waterfall... to name a few), and none really fit the dynamic of working with clients. They rarely followed the rules, and I wound up frustrated nearly every time.
I also tried every project management software under the sun, from Basecamp to Asana and more. And while a lot of the software was fantastic, it didn't solve the underlying problem that I had: I needed a good foundation. I needed structure.
See, structure is the reason why scope creep exists. Or a lack of structure, that is. Even if you feel like you have a solid approach to your projects, if you're not communicating that structure on a regular basis with your clients, scope creep is not only probable... it's inevitable.
I can't tell you how many times I've had to deal with clients who asked for just one more round of revisions to make a small change... or have you ever heard this one?
