Are poorly written SOWs setting your projects up to fail? The Statement of Work sets the foundation for the scope, financial terms (price, payment terms, etc.) and delivery terms for your project. SOWs with incomplete or inaccurate details can often result in tension and conflict within delivery teams, contribute to unsatisfied customers, and possibly introduce potential legal and/or financial risks. Poorly written SOWs, containing inexplicit terms and ambiguous scope, set a project up to fail.
It’s time to start writing more effective SOWs. We created this SOW writing course to provide your team with the knowledge, tools, and confidence to write full scope, detailed SOWs and ensure more successful project delivery. Check out the course details below and join as next month for our next SOW writing class.
