Strategic Planning

The goal of a strategic planning project is to think big and define implementation and project phases in more detail. Common Voyage includes strategic discovery as part of every implementation and support project, however, we also offer this service as its own engagement. Some clients come to us for this type of work specifically, and sometimes we recommend it to clients based on their project requirements. Below are a few examples of cases in which clients have opted for discovery projects separate from an implementation:

- Creation of overall system strategies

- Undefined business process

- Technically complicated project components requiring separate discovery

- Exploration and cost comparison of multiple options within a project

- Grant applications requiring detailed project proposal and budget

- Existing Salesforce systems in need of an overhaul
