Robert K. Wysocki (firstname.lastname@example.org) writes on sustaining client ownership of a project on the book The Keys to Our Success.
In his words “Lack of client involvement has been identified as a major reason for project failure. I would add that it’s not only important to have clients involved, but involvement must also be meaningful involvement.”
His key suggestion? Adopt a practice where you and the client co-manage the project. Some good stuff here. The Keys to Our Success is available on Amazon.com in hard copy or e-version. https://ow.ly/PPXtB
