Nail Down The Scope—Without Destroying Relationships
Bill Hinsley - Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at 1:30 pm (EST)

Most A/E firms understand that a completed scope doesn’t always ensure a satisfied client. When the scope doesn’t consider the client’s critical success factors, the firm puts themselves at great budget and liability risk.

By creating scopes that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-based (SMART), firms can avoid the risks of an ambiguous scope and not understanding the client’s CSFs. By attending this webinar, you will learn to:

  • Identify the link among project goals, objectives, and scope
  • Understand why ambiguous scopes can create both budget and liability risks
  • Develop a scope that minimizes ambiguities that can create liability risks
  • Write a scope that ties back to the client’s critical goals
