Today, in this segment of the Women in Sales Leadership podcast, I’m talking with Ellen Kindley is a dynamic revenue operations leader at QASymphony specializing in sales process, data management & analytics, strategy, and sales tech.
Ellen believes that sales operations leaders should think about internal operational improvements as if you are building a product with features. Your salespeople are essentially your customers, and everything done in revenue operations is geared to support them in success. Operations should act as a product owner – creating a road map where key stakeholders can collaborate on which projects (product features) to prioritize and why.
How revenue operations are different from traditional sales operations.
The overarching goals of a revenue operations team.
How to best organize the business initiatives you need to prioritize.
How to stay in tune with what’s happening on the sales floor and bring that back into your operational roadmap.
Ideas for cross collaboration with stakeholders across your business.
Some of the common operational challenges solved with the approach that Ellen advocates.
Enjoy the interview!
