    The Cutting Edge

    G'Day Developers!

    Do you email clients as soon as you realise you will overrun your original estimate?

    Do NOT wait until you have met or exceeded an estimate before you notify the client that the project is running late. As soon as you realise that any of your estimates are likely to be exceeded by a margin of 10% or greater, then let the customer know ASAP by phone and by email. This will ensure that the client is fully aware of any problems and have a chance to respond to them.

    Never keep the client in the dark when you exceed your estimates as it will only arouse suspicion and mistrust when the project deadline whooshes past!

    Cheers until next time, Adam
    SSW Chief Architect and Microsoft Regional Director, Australia
