Here’s a different form of negotiating.. Don’t accept ‘No’ as an answer, when you need something for your project. Why do I say that?
As a Project Manager I am being paid to ensure that I deliver this project for my Business Owner, to the best of my ability, on time, on budget and within scope. And yes, those are the standard project success factors. We can talk about other just as important things to measure success by, but I will leave that for another post.
