A Guide to Navigating Projects and Relationships
Organizations are constantly embarking on new projects. In order to help execute these projects effectively, supporting teams must meet the customer where they are.
1. Knowing your audience and understanding their needs, goals, challenges, and preferences will be the difference between a successful and unsuccessful project.
