This week on the SBI Sales and Marketing podcast, we speak with Lee Wood, SVP of sales operations, planning and strategy at Thomson Reuters, about building a successful sales operations strategy.
In our first segment, Lee covers the basic structure of a sales operations department, the number of people needed, what roles they perform and how they are structured.
Next, we walk through how to identify, design and create a set of reports that consistently satisfy the needs of the executive leadership team and how to continue running your quarterly and annual strategic planning process. This includes sales training and why Thomson Reuters chooses to keep a sales enablement function as a part of their sales operations strategy.
In our last segment, Lee shares with us the reasoning behind his personal decision to make the leap from sales management to sales operations.
