Yep. I’d send client an email (defensive practice) saying “Got the change. Thanks. This has been a negotiated point and the other side has firmly rejected what you’re proposing. If you want me to propose the change I will but I’m concerned that the other side might see this as retrading a material term and blow up the deal. Is this issue important enough to you to take that risk?” Then do what the client wants. It’s the client’s deal.

New to Project Management. Today my company asked me to PM a new customer Project. The Project is assigned a team with a technical lead.

However, I have never been present in a project kick-off and high level decision making processes. What do I need to find out on early stages of the discussion, and what to ask in onboarding?
