Initial meetings with your prospective client go well. You develop the project objectives with an enthusiastic project sponsor. You develop a proposed statement of work and project plan. You land the engagement and begin work. Then, unexpectedly things start to go wrong. You realize that changing requirements, priorities, and available resources, as well as client politics have superseded your agreed plan and objectives. You find yourself working beyond the original scope resulting in unplanned extra work while perceptions of your services are devalued. This leads to soured client relations, a failed engagement, or some combination of these outcomes.

Please come prepared with your own stories about how a consulting project got derailed, the steps that you took to correct it, and how well these steps worked to achieve a positive outcome.
