Dear Ms. Houston,

I’ve talked to the team and we have scheduled a kick off call to outline the project for Monday at 10 AM. You’ll get an invite in the next few minutes. Please let us know if there’s any issues.

Thanks,

Dear Ms. Houston,

We received your latest communication regarding the project. While we feel confident that we can deliver on your original ask, the new elements of your project are out of scope. I don’t want to bother you with the possibilities of scope creep, but adding elements to your original ask will probably extend delivery date beyond the original planned delivery date.

Thanks,

Don’t you wanna dance?
Don’t you wanna dance say you wanna dance?
Uh huh. With somebody who loves me.

Dear Ms. Houston,

Your business is important to us, however, we feel that this project is probably out of the abilities to the team. I see that the Ops department is on the CC line, could someone from Ops chime in and let me know if they feel that this project could be possible from your standpoint? Maybe we could touchbase later in the week?

Thanks,
