Hi Milan @milan-steskal
A nice piece and it does describe a situation many of us have found ourselves in, at one time or another. I’ve certainly done this (more than once) and know the outcome, so it does hit home.
One way to be exact about a project when you meet with the client is to have a questionnaire ready and encourage them to expand on their answers so an understanding of exactly what they want/need is forthcoming. Interject your own ideas (from your experiences) and add those to the answers as needed.
Meetings of this type can really be a great way to have the information set down for when you write the contract or if you have one prepared you can use the questionnaire as and addendum, already mentioned in the contract.
PS – You need to proofread your article.
