But some clients are different. I want you to think real hard – go back as far as you can. Tell us…what is the strangest request that a client has ever made of you on a project. Keep it ‘G-rated’ please. I’m in Las Vegas and I can say that as a consultant working with various organizations in project management roles for one-off projects, I’ve witnessed some strange requests (a couple were illegal, I think) made of the organizations I was consulting for but thankfully not of me. But I have had strange requests made of me. I’m a project manager and I was asked to basically not manage the project on one engagement. The budget was limited and they thought project managers were useless overhead…so I complied and stayed in the shadows charging little to no time to the project while still overseeing my lead developers work on the effort (believe me…he needed the oversight). By doing that I won the client over.
