During Your Weekly Retrospective, You Suggest The Idea Of Adding A Step Before The Initial Kickoff Workshop: Meetings With Each Stakeholder Individually. The Agency’s Owner Pushes Back Hard, Explaining That It Would Add A Great Deal Of Time To The Engagement. Which Of The Following Would Be The BEST Response?

  • “Sure, I understand. These meetings are important and are an investment in the relationship. We can cut out the user research in the strategy stage and repurpose this time to host these meetings.”?
  • “You’re right. We are already having trouble selling GDD retainers; adding more time to the engagement will likely make it harder for us to grow our program.”?
  • “We could still have each person talk about their vision for the website; however, we can do it as a group and invite the CEO. This will ensure the CEO can include their ideas.”?
  • “These meetings would be an investment in the long-term success of this client. This will help us establish better relationships, tailor the process, and create more aligned ideas.”?
