Planning service Yes
How the planning service works Our Planning and Design phase aims at gathering customer requirements, stakeholder information and timescales; and documenting and assessing existing services and desirable features of the new replacement service.

It is typical that the project will contain independent and co-dependent components (work-packages) that can be designed and delivered in series or in parallel such as hosting, migration, testing, training, etc. The aim of this phase is to produce a mutually agreed Scope of Works document containing individual work packages that make up the entirety of the service which include for each work package the following:
