Time: 3:45 PM - 5:15 PM

Description:

Scoping the work effectively at the outset is critical to effective management to a budget, to preventing write-offs and to strong client relationships.   It is a simple process, but one that requires thinking differently about the work and the firm-client relationship.   This workshop would include a case study where the learners would develop a scope of work document and then, deal with scope change issues and conversations as the project proceeds.
