Acquiring new project work from a client can be a very exciting ordeal. However it is often this excitement that leads to issues further down the road for you as a vendor. Your first instinct is to commence working on the project as quickly as possible. By rushing into certain projects you are setting your company up for error without taking the time to understand your client’s needs. The lines of communication always need to be open on both ends in order to ensure that each party has a sufficient understanding. Another method of ensuring that communication is occurring is by occasionally checking back with the client to ensure that the goal is still the same. The specifications your client gives you must be completely comprehended and strategized before any effort is made on the project. With the proper planning and implementation you can prevent the possibility of errors occurring within the scope of work. It is also important in this process to keep your client up to speed and inform them on the progress being made. The client’s vision and goal has to be captured by you so you can provide them with the proper services required to get them to the final product.
