Day 1 – Arrival (4/12/2010)
Tip of the Day: Be Prepared
I was quite impressed with this particular client on this upgrade, especially when we first arrived. We were met by the project manager and escorted directly to the security office. Our lovely photos were taken and our badges were printed immediately. No “escort required” badges and having to worry about someone walking you to the bathroom all the time. It was great! Now this is a very secure building, mind you. We were given keys to our office and we walked over to our new digs. We had a fully functional office of about 12 by 6 feet. 2 desktops, 2 white boards (with pens and erasers), cabinets… the “works”. We then took a tour of the complex and received instructions on how to enter and exit each of the secure doors. It is quite the facility. I cannot stress the importance of BEING PREPARED. It truly makes a difference to your consulting company and it reflects on the bottom line positively. I cannot count the number of times we have arrived and wasted days waiting for space, access to systems and all around logistics to be completed so we can begin the real work of the upgrade. Thank you!
