Smartsheet Discovery Workshop

Discovery Workshops by Smartsheet Professional Services are engineered to help you develop the right business strategy to unlock dynamic work across your organization. 

 

 

Overview

Discovery Workshops are designed to help you define your business objectives, identify opportunities, bottlenecks, and discover new ways of working more efficiently and collaboratively using the Smartsheet platform for modern work management. 

With an onsite option or flexible virtual option, our consulting teams will engage in a two-day workshop in partnership with your team.  During the workshop, our experts will develop key insights about your business processes and workflows in Smartsheet in order to analyze and identify optimization opportunities. At the end of the workshop, you will be presented with key observations and best practice solution recommendations.
