  • This is great advice. The areas we struggle with displaying costs to the customer from a perception level are development operations, project management time / meetings, and quality assurance. When you factor in project management, Devops, QA, etc you can easily eat up 30 to 40 percent of the budget. What advice do you have on presenting those costs to a customer in a way that doesn't make them think they are not getting value. These are necessary costs and there is only so much you can do to reduce these costs without sacrificing quality but the perception of these costs is often of low value to the client who is not as technical.
