I started a new role a couple months ago in a new industry. I think I’m helping a client implement a solution I didn’t give the best solution/approach to implement the technology. Defo back peddling w them a bit to understand more and try to insert my correction. Anyone been in a similar position and can share their experience? Or advice?

Are they claiming to be agile? If so this is less painful.
Lessons learned indicate a potential change in direction being necessary. Present that with whatever your course corrections would be along with schedule/ cost impacts. Let the client make an educated decision for a short/ long term plan.

Yeah they are. It’s a baby scale implementation so not very costly but inconvenient and I should’ve known better. But I’m new so I didn’t know enough at the start. You live and you learn

I’ve been in the same boat and typically share with clients that “requirements were missed,” and they’ve been fairly understanding as long as there’s an explanation and a plan/timeline to get back on track. Unfortunately “not enough experience” is probably not going to fly as a reason why for your client; I’d work with your leadership to shape a message about stakeholder groups not identified for discovery, requirements not stated until implementation had begun, etc.

Thank you so much! We discussed it today and it went well 🥰
