Partner Sales Funnel
The CiviCRM Core Team is contacted from time to time by end users seeking guidance on implementing CiviCRM. Potential projects range in size from the very small to the very large. Where possible, the CT attempts to qualify the leads and refer them either directly to the partner list (happens most often) or to specific partners therein (happens probably 6 times a year).
The idea of a sales funnel has been discussed in the past, however no consensus has been reached regarding how to do it in an equitable, efficient manner.
