Competing firm and practice group hired by the client, conducting an assessment on my practice groups current engagement with the same client. Has anyone ever heard of this type of scenario. Pls help

Our engagement literally just started two weeks ago.

Different or same client stakeholders? Could be client politics.

Same Stakeholder.

You’re saying your firm is being assessed by another firm during an engagement at the client?

This is client politics. Make sure your partners are aware ASAP. It’s their responsibility to handle the tops on this so that you come out on top. There really is no winning in these situations

Obviously this is plain old politics with the competing firm having convinced the client that you guys are not good enough, and need some sort of oversight/assessment - they may even offer their assessment services for free so they can take over the project :) - client politics .

It’s also a low-ball sell by the competitor.

Let’s think about this for a minute.

They will assess you. They’ll assess the pains the client has told them that they “might” be having with your group or create some FUD.

Then give a slide deck the suggests they can do a better job but for less money.

So you need to show value (take your pick) and your partner needs to get involved
