    Beth Livingston: How to Leverage your Project Management Methodology to Set Yourself Apart from Your Competition

    WordCamp Raleigh 2019Speaker: Beth Livingston

    May 21, 2019 — Let’s face it, the technical solution from one WordPress provider is probably going to look a lot like the next one. There will be a theme, plugins, maybe some custom css or a little coding – but generally, the proposed solutions will be similar. So how do you set yourself above your competition when your technical skills and solution are fairly equal?

    What if you were able to tell your client that:
    – you have a way of estimating the project so that there are NO surprises along the way
    – you have a way to plan for and manage change that does not include an arbitrary “pad” amount added to the estimate
    – you have a way of defining the website and gathering the content that reduces the chance for scope creep
    – you have a way to ensure that the project gets completed on time and within budget

    In this presentation, I will show attendees how to craft these sections of of their project management methodology and use it as a unique value proposition when presenting to a client.
