Your first briefing tells you that this project is the “President’s Baby”. Managers know that putting this in place will give great benefit to the company – lowered costs, increased efficiency, leading edge. . . and will replace the existing tool (an old, antiquated system that users are constantly complaining about).
Users will love it. It’s state-of-the-art and has the highest ratings.
You can have anything you want. Oh! By the way. it needs to be in place before the Board Meeting in 5 weeks. Your team is waiting in the Project Room. I am counting on you.
