Team Structure for a Salesforce Marketing Cloud Implementation Project

Are you into Project Management and looking to implement a Salesforce Marketing Cloud project lately?

You must be looking for the right combination of resources that must be the part of a Salesforce Marketing Cloud project.

Through my years of experience, I could arrive at the resource list and their roles and responsibilities that will help you with every essential aspect of marketing cloud implementation.

I would strongly suggest keeping your BA (Business Analyst) at the client site, rest all could be from an offshore location if in case of the tight budget situation.
