I was engaged on behalf of RPG for several clients. The primary engagement was for strategic sourcing for an aerospace holding company, which was having trouble with billed receivables. With a cashflow crunch, it became clear a couple of weeks into the project that RPG was not going to be paid timely, if at all (client payables were 120+ days out). While this should have raised a flag with RPG, the account manager (who'd landed the engagement) was too busy to follow up.
I succeeded with deliverables and handed off work over two weeks before leaving. While I'd been paid, I found RPG was not well-positioned to collect fees or successfully target client verticals (an observation I attribute to how client engagements are managed with account management). Still, I had a great time on the engagements and wish RPG well.
Engagement model needs improvement
