Of Silk and Services
As I listened to my wife, a custom wedding dress designer, talk a hysterical bride off the cliff this past weekend, I realized the conversation sounded eerily familiar. My wife was certain that the completed dress in front of them was exactly what had been ordered and she had emails, sketches and photos to prove it. The bride knew exactly what dress she had ordered, and this wasn’t it. She also had a set of texts, emails, and photos to support her expectation.
Sound familiar? This was nothing more than a failure to document a services solution. How can a “bride” to an outsourcing engagement avoid the same disaster?
