Be Clear in Communication With A Potential Consultant
Do not use abbreviations or industry slang terms without a complete description. I am reminded of the story about the "Unclear Co." and their client.
The client requested, and placed in the contract, that the consultant was to provide services following cGMP. It was months before the consultant and the client realized that cGMP meant "current Good Manufacturing Practice" to the client and "Gross Maximum Price" to the consultant.
