Folks, I just got promoted and joined this group. How should I approach selling consulting services? I am delivering services and not had much success farming given the client environment. How can I start hunting? Any steps or tried-out resources I can leverage? Help out a fella trying to do his job better 🙏
TFW your client decides to join you on site tours... checking out of hotel to join client tonight... Goodbye suite upgrade at the W.... hello Fairfield Inn...
Have you ever been rolled off a project suddenly? Should I be paranoid of a 4 rating or being laid off.
Does anyone else experience this - no matter what you do, the client isn’t happy? How do you stay motivated? I always review with my leads before presenting recommendations to the client to get sign off/feedback. I’ve been rated a top performer / received great feedback from 5 years of other clients and internal teams, so I don’t think it’s that I’m slacking
My former firm lost a multimillion arb in a case I was handling prior to my departure. I recommended against trying the case, but still find myself oddly plagued with guilt for the client. Anyone experience something similar?
Well-off client not over their spouse had previous counsel that didn’t know their head from their ass. So client is micromanaging us since we substituted in. Just got an email from client: “I need you to work this case like it’s your only case.” Oh, ok. If you pay your bill like it’s your only bill.
I have a partner at my firm who wants me to join a new project with them. It’s with the same client that I’m currently staffed to, but this partner oversees a different portfolio of work. I’m supposed to be on my current project through EOY, but I want to go to this new project. Will I burn bridges with my current partner/project team asking to roll off?
How do I get my old project to leave me alone? I rolled off, but they keep calling me in for little things. My new project leads are okay with it for now, but I want it to end. What to do?
Call my manager earlier today and having a melt down. Somehow the manager still convinces me to stay on and continue the project. Amazing 😭
What does your firm do for evening meals if you work late? Most of our offices bring in a meal couple of nights a week but will no reimburse if in town and working late at a client.
Which project management tools would you recommend to keep track of multiple different work streams and action items across 8-10 ongoing projects? I don’t want to use this collaboratively with other stakeholders but mainly for me to track as the PM. Are there any tools except “Planner” that can be used with MS Teams? Thank you @
Any good recommended books on how to build a scalable product and team? I'm looking for recommendations for two areas: 1) in general laying the groundwork in a startup to have the tools and especially processes in place to scale, and 2) tactical focus on building a SaaS project. I've been promoted into a management role from Dev roots, so need to learn more PM processes to be an effective manager in day job, plus would like to start building my own SaaS solution.
Having joined consulting from Industry, I get butterflies when time comes to end a project and go on the bench....I hate sitting idle or 'working' on internal initiatives!! 😓
Currently working in Project Management and have about 8 YOE. Slalom approached me for delivery leadership consulting role. What can I expect to make approximately?
Project leadership is telling teams that they need to fly in the week of thanksgiving and possible Christmas as well. The assumption is that we fly home the day prior to the actual holiday. 😂

After working 15 months on a big project, I was replaced by another creative who finished producing it. Dream client. Dream content. I was never told this was happening. The project just kept rolling on and I was not invited to the meetings. The company recently released the work and everyone is fawning over it. Much of the concept is the same, which I had a key role in. Due to Covid it was packaged differently, but still the same messaging. I’m so angry. but not sure I have the right. 😖
