Having projects that are fun, enjoyable, challenging, and meaningful to the customer are rewarding opportunities. But projects like these rarely happen. And I really haven’t been able to find these opportunities through business development. Â I think the secret is that these kinds of projects are often times hidden and unknown, especially to the outsider.
We have a project like this now. Our experiences are a very good fit with the client needs. Generally speaking, the client resources are welcoming and open and sharing–they want things to get better. The engagement involves quite a bit of strategy; what we are doing now is not why the client brought us in. Most importantly, we believe the results of our efforts will make a significant difference in the company’s bottom line and also the culture.
This is the type of project that keeps me going. This is why I love what I do.
