We landed a big project and established a two-month timeframe to complete it, working with a large team and the client.
There were numerous parts to the project. We received incomplete designs and specs around the agreed starting day for the project. Week by week, elements trickled in, sometimes less than promised and often incomplete. We still had no down-payment, but we were working with what we had.
Despite all this, we were on schedule a month in when the client rewarded us with the remaining elements, specs, and down-payment. He even included one vital piece of information he had been holding on to: the project was now due in a week.
