Due diligence is one of the backlogs in the master list. Because due diligence cannot be completed simultaneously with the other tasks in the backlogs (since foundational information is needed to get acclimated with the client's present situation,) PGN HR consultants kicks off every compensation study initiative with one (1) full week of dialogues and collection of internal data. This user story uses 1, 3, 5, 8 Fibonacci sequence sprints. Meaning, we deliver something within the first week of the engagement (one week), another thing on the third week (three weeks), still another thing on the fifth week (5 weeks).
The topics of discussion, within the context of due diligence include: the over arching mission of the project, the overall timeframe, and the clients' strategic priorities. This is done within the first week of contract execution.
The second and third week of the initiative will see us collecting all available and related institutional literatures, relevant corporate artifacts, and employee census that support our project objectives.
By week 5, we deliver our initial findings based on discussions and internal data reviews.
