In the past we’ve covered the importance of drawing up detailed specifications when doing client project work. However this process may become more tedious and time consuming when a contract involves multiple clients. In order to provide services for multiple clients you need to use prioritization, estimation, and leeway for unforeseen issues that may come up in the future. Specific clients may require more time and special attention than what is usually required so they need to be prioritized accordingly. For each client included under the contract it is necessary to estimate the amount of work, time, and effort that will be needed to be put forth. In situations such as these it’s best to plan ahead and plan for more hours rather than giving the clients unrealistic expectations. Your specifications must be well thought out and accommodate the clients that will be receiving services under the contract. Your scope of work must have specific determinations for each client’s needs as well as the room for complications. It’s best to approach a client and complete the project under the predetermined amount of time rather than going back to them asking for more time.
