  1. Defining (Word, Excel)
  2. Presenting (PDF)
  3. Tracking (Excel, Word) projects.
  4. Facilitating (Email, PDF, Sledgehammer Reminder Sequence)

Discover How To Easily:

  • Create Project Scope Documents in Word and Excel for estimating.
  • Present Contracts, Schedules, and other Collateral in PDF format with ease.
  • Track every deliverable from the contracts in Project Task Trackers made in Excel.
  • Align Deliverables to Payment Milestones from the contract to submit invoices.
  • Create Assumptions and Risks that are tied to the Client’s responsibilities to be listed in the contracts by legal professionals.
  • Reminder sequence: Lightly remind. Direct reminder. Sledgehammer Reminder.

This is not contract writing.

This is creating the deliverable statements with properly associated risks and assumptions to be added into contracts for legal review.

Well-stated deliverables can give leverage to drop a reminder sledgehammer when clients have not carried out their responsibilities in the timely manner as defined, discussed, and agreed upon. Or when they may try to point out some detail they believe is something you have not completed to their satisfaction and or are stepping outside of the defined deliverables… again.

Consistent clarity with definitions and expectations virtually eliminates the need to drop into a sledgehammer reminder sequence.

I believe every builder knows having a proven sledgehammer is good. When you need it there is no other tool like it.

Track Milestones that connect Deliverables to Schedules with a Task tracker in Excel with an easy no-fuss task archive.

IF/WHEN on occasion projects turn south, because you have created clean lines for breaking up, you can be sure you are owed/due payment for the completed milestones.

With milestones steps reached, the money is delivered, and the project is another step closer to the next 5-star review.
