Sales to PM: When Client Prospects Become Project Reality

1:30 pm, Wednesday, SEPTEMBER 5
Ballroom E

The handoff from sales to project management is an important and vulnerable transition. Ensuring a project kicks off on the right foot is a critical element of project success. You never get a second chance at a first impression. What can digital project managers do to help optimize this process?

As a business development lead working in client services with some truly kick ass PMs, Joe Rinaldi was the beneficiary of a deeply thoughtful approach to successful project handoffs. As a business development consultant now, working with dozens of teams, he’s seen how often this process can go sideways too.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Map out the attributes and goals of a successful sales to project management transition plan, and best practices

  • Learn the value a successful transition process provides to sales, project management, operations, and project execution

  • Learn ways to enact change and champion process improvement whether you’re deeply involved in sales or not

  • Find out how to internally sell a win/win/win/win proposition
