Can your tech staff hold their own?
Do they say yes too often to requests for additional features?
Do they agree too often to work outside the scope of current assignments for clients?
Are they pressured, and do they give in, to requests to alter schedules?
Can they convince a customer to take their advice?
A tech staff that doesn’t negotiate well creates frustration, short changes the client,
and can results in lost revenue for the company.
