The contract is signed, the project team is defined, and goals are set. So you’re probably thinking, let’s kick the project off. Although it’s exciting to jump in and make progress on a new project, there’s a lot to think about before getting started.

Successful projects are a result of great partnerships, and it’s important to establish a strong project team and be on the same page from the start. In this session, we’ll cover the importance of:

  • Business and client team building, including inclusion and transparency

  • Creating a business and client tech team “safe space"

  • Empowering decision-makers with a discovery-first approach

  • Performing phased projects to deliver success when dealing with high risk and uncertainty


Synopsis (if needing a short description)

In the tech agency space, agencies may perform poorly because they act as a "middle man" instead of a "facilitator". Whether you’re an agency or work with one, join us to learn the best practices for successful project management and a successful agency partnership.


Learning objectives

At the end of this session, attendees will be able to host inclusive and transparent team-building activities with their partner businesses, understand and create “safe” spaces for their teams, and produce successful results on an uncertain project.



Attendees will get the most out of this session by being familiar with business client relationships.
