Ask PT About Project Management for Product Launches in Salesforce

2022/08/25

Dear PT, 

We use multiple clouds from Salesforce® throughout our company. Our various functional teams successfully use Projects to track and complete their activities. However, when it comes time for new product creation and launch, it's difficult to manage resource allocation as well as coordinate all of the functions and all of the work. Adding in external partners makes it even more complicated. How can we execute our new product in Salesforce Projects and Tasks in a more cohesive manner?

Ask PT About Managing Repeatable Projects in Salesforce

2022/06/15

Dear PT, 

The nature of our business requires completing the same projects over and over. These projects overlap similar projects, each in a different stage of the same project process. The only differences are beginning and end dates, and once in a while a special task or dependency is needed. We tend to create these project plans from scratch each time—how can we streamline our efforts?

What is technical debt, and how can you avoid it in Salesforce?

2022/05/19

What is technical debt?

The easiest explanation is that hardware, software, or technical processes you implement now may not work in the future. This can manifest in many ways. When you're under pressure to put something together quickly, this can result in bugs that will take a lot of time to fix (possibly more time than doing it correctly the first time). Technical debt can also manifest when you move information over from a legacy system, or it can be something that needs to be fixed with better documentation to help user adoption or ensure people use the tools correctly.

Ask PT About Using Salesforce to Manage Product Development Activities

2022/04/19

Dear PT, 

At our company, we use the phase-gate development process to create our products, from releasing new most viable products (MVPs) to updating later versions. It is a lightning fast process, so it is important we improve our project management abilities. We’d like to use Salesforce®, but it has limited project management functionality. Any suggestions?

How Decision Makers Can Confidently Enact Successful Strategic Change

2021/11/12

As businesses continue to react to the new challenges imposed on a world still reeling from a pandemic in its second year, this truth has emerged: Waiting to undertake strategic business transformation is not an option. 

Instilling Confidence

It would be nice if businesses could wait until the turmoil is over, gain a full understanding of the new environment, and then confidently make the changes needed to succeed. However, time is a luxury most businesses can’t afford. Business leaders need to move forward and enact transformation now, even if they may not have all the information they desire.
