☔ If the skills are not matched by the project requirements, nothing will be billed and no contracts made. Initial evaluation and analysis will be for free. The evaluation of the project might lead to suggestions of major changes in every aspect of the project and organization (e.g. schedule, resources, budget, technologies, software engineering practices). In extreme cases project termination could be suggested.
