Rescuing Projects (and their associated humans) Effectively

Join us for a very informative presentation by Tiffany Kuchta on Thursday June 16 at tek Mountain!  RSVP right here.

Rescuing Projects (and their associated humans) Effectively

 

Abstract:

Rescue projects are always challenging, but they don’t have to be painful. In nearly all cases, the client is approaching you because something has driven them away from their current developer(s). They often feel that they’ve been burned, and probably by someone who looks and talks an awful lot like you.  We’ll review some strategies for assessing project needs, approaches to the repair work itself, establishing trust and growing that into an ongoing relationship. We’ll also discuss common pitfalls with a surprise, bonus take-away!
