Here are the core areas we discuss in today's episode:

The Role of AI and ML in Modern RevOps and How They are Transforming the way Revenue Operations are Managed

Chris highlighted that while BI (Business Intelligence) informs us about past events, AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) enable us to anticipate future occurrences.

Chris also emphasized the importance of predictive analytics in modeling customer behavior based on the predictions generated by the model.

How RevOps Has & Has Not Evolved From CRM

Next, we explored how RevOps has evolved from CRM. Chris noted that the idea of teams working with the same data has been around for years, however, he also highlighted that simply having access to the same data is not enough.

Operations must now deliver to the customer over time to ensure quality service and customer satisfaction.

Putting the "Ops" in RevOps

In the final section of the podcast, Chris discussed the importance of putting the 'Ops' in RevOps.

Chris emphasized the significance of aligning the delivery of the business with customer behavior to ensure customer satisfaction. He also noted that this process is highly dependent on the culture and willingness to change, and the evolution of RevOps is increasingly prioritizing customer delivery.

Chris' #1 Takeaway

Chris' main takeaway from the podcast is that while change management involves data, it is people who implement the changes. He emphasized the importance of getting data to those who interact with customers to enable effective change.

Overall, the focus was on using data to inform change, but recognizing that it is ultimately people who carry out these changes.
