Here’s an excerpt regarding business planning:
“…A little planning will go a long way in making your migration to Microsoft Dynamics CRM successful. To help you plan, we’ve put together several big-picture questions that you should ask yourself before you make the switch. The answer to these questions will vary greatly depending on the complexity and size of your current Salesforce.com implementation, but no matter how small your current system, you should address each one.

Another example: if you use CRM mostly for sales, you probably don’t want to migrate during peak sales times.
