Salesforce Project Management Best Practices

“Companies that model best practices, that model the most upstanding principles, end up as the most profitable. It's not a trade of profits versus principles. “ 

– Philip Zimbardo, an American psychologist 

 

Best practices ensure that any project undertaken runs smoothly and gets to the winning post seamlessly and with as little pain as possible. In this blog, we are examining in brief Salesforce project management best practices to ensure that your usage of Salesforce CRM for project management goes as per plan and everything is smooth as silk.  

 

Please find below Salesforce project management best practices:  

  • Define the project goals at the very beginning. This is important to jot down because everything that follows is the result of the goals/outcomes being cleared. For example, finances and budgeting are dependent on the goal decided.  Your goal/outcome could vary as per the nature of business and the requirement of the organization, be it sealing more deals, streamlining work processes, and so on.  

  

  • The leadership team/project manager must set doable but strict timelines and deadlines whether they are delivered in weeks or months. The Project manager must ensure that everyone on the team acts with responsibility so that all mentioned schedule timelines are achieved, and no delays. Delays mean money wastage and all plans go for a toss.  
     
      

  • Resource allocation and management is a delicate task which is essential to ensure smooth project management
