Your project management teams have strong relationships with existing clients and many times have access to internal information that could indicate additional revenue potential for your company. But are they making the most of this potential? Meanwhile, your sales staff are encountering new opportunities with new clients, often requiring deviations from the standard offering.

This presentation explores the barriers to cooperation and addresses how the two teams can better understand each other and work together.
