Lost in Translation: The Handoff from Sales to the Project Team

1:30 PM, Tuesday, October 22

Maybe you’re a project manager who has had new projects cross your desk with unrealistic timelines, poorly documented assumptions and unvetted budgets. Or maybe you’re in business development and you’ve seen projects careen off scope and run into timeline / budget issues soon after the project team takes them on. Or perhaps you’re a strategist, designer or developer who’s tired of suffering late nights and lost weekends at the hands of a poor sales process.

It doesn’t have to be this way! In this session, Joe Crespo, Aten’s Director of Accounts, and Sally Shaughnessy, Aten’s Director of Project Management, will share their practices for ensuring smooth transitions from sales to the project team.

This session will cover:

  • Setting expectations in sales and keeping them top-of-mind after kickoff

  • The things that every project team MUST know before kickoff

  • How to collaborate with the project team in the sales process

  • The documentation Aten uses to transition an engagement from sales to the project team

  • Company culture and practices that ensure smooth transitions
