Is your product struggling to keep pace with your sales or are you building more product than you can sell? Are you running a SCRUM framework for the software guys, but managing sales with a leaderboard and annual targets? It might sound strange but was sales and customer support teams that pioneered the Monday morning "stand-up" back befoe SCRUM was even a thing. Today, many organizations are experiencing vast gaps in their performance because they think one type of culture is good for one team while a different one is suited for the other. If you are suspicious though, this workshop is for you.
According to Aberdeen, 74% of best-in-class companies have strong team alignment. Your sales system works when the entire team is in synch on the "why," "what," and "how" they are getting customer work done. Our 3-part workshop is designed for either single commercial teams (marketing, sales, customer success, product) or multiples. We offer 3 (evening or morning) sessions at our Amsterdam Training Office.
Using our proprietary method, Marketing, Sales and/or Customer Success teams will learn a fun and engaging standup method. Team Leads will learn a simple rule set to align goals in a clear way and individuals will be given partner "pairings" for similar work. SCRUM Masters or elected representatives will get to participate in valuable team learning, market and product development. This course is ideal for SaaS and technology firms already running agile, SCRUM or Holacracy.
“What cannot be made simple cannot be made clear and what is not clear will not get done.” - Stephen Bungay
