@David, that's what I was going to ask Rick too.

Hi Rick, what are some of your thoughts on risks related to suppliers being overly confident in their abilities. Any good tips for questioning?
David Long
01:41:22
@Nate...that's their job! :) sell, Sell, SELL! :)
Nate Bernklau

project trade spaces are a powerful tool to down select in theory, but are they used in the industry?
David Long

Identify the stakeholders AND identify what their stake actually is. If someone claims to be a stakeholder but don't have a stake, they are called PROBLEMS.
