Guidelines for Project Clients to Enable Success

Dynamics between clients and project teams can, in many situations, be the factor in which the outcome of a project is decided.   Geoff Mattie, in this article, discusses his 4 guidelines for helping clients and other stakeholders to successfully work with these project teams:

1. Be transparent. A good project team realizes there are going to be unique variables and circumstances it will need to address. Be upfront and candid with the project team about the challenges or risks in accomplishing the project goals. It is much more productive to get everything on the table upfront versus waiting for it to be discovered while executing the project.

Mr. Mattie offers his perspective on the importance of following his 4 guidelines throughout the remainder of the article.   These guidelines incorporate other issues such as staying engaged and responsive, being decisive and time sensitive, and the laws of physics.
