Another Painful Truth of Working with Some Clients

If you remember back a couple of years ago, there was a video about the Expert and how sometimes people just can’t wrap their heads around what you’re explaining as a subject matter expert. No matter what you would say the client and/or Project Manager would make a request that wasn’t possible.

Now The Expert is at it again.  Lauris Beinerts published a new video poking fun at yet another instance when your client just won’t listen to you as the expert. If your expertise has ever been questioned even though you know you’re right then this video is for you, or just watch it for another laugh to end off your work week.

The Struggles of a Subject Matter Expert

Here’s some Friday humour that anybody who’s been a subject matter expert on a technology project will relate to. Sometimes, regardless of how many times you explain a concept to a client and/or a Project Manager, or that their exact request is simply not possible, they refuse to hear you and continue to throw out non-sense suggestions on how you should do the work. If this is relatable, you’ll love this video published by Lauris Beinerts. If you don’t relate (or if you’re the client or Project Manager), you should still watch this video.
