Anyone ever been in a position where the client doesn’t follow any of your firm’s recommendations and your Partner proposes scaling back the project team in the interim? PPMD wants me on another busy project and the main goal is getting the client to agree to this. Any advice?

Of course they can be higher or lower by a few k's on each position depending on impact tier, but I tried to look for average amounts. If you have information please post it so we can update.

I get the sense that part of the reason schools are slow to re-open is that the faculty is opposed to going back for self-serving reasons with an irrational argument to support their position.

I’m sorry summer break is over, but it’s time to get back to work like the rest of us do 365. Our kid needs an education and we need to work without worrying about it.
