It’s an ongoing battle with clients. How do we get them better results for the level of investment in their engagement? We know we can do more, but we can’t do more because they have a budget.
Some clients understand that, and others will push you to do as much as they can get you to do. Other clients, while not malicious about it, are just unclear about where to draw the line.
Over servicing isn’t the answer but better processes, systems and methodologies around delivery is the secret to getting clients better results within the limits of their engagement.
