Sr. Business Architect Sales Process, Tools, & Infrastructure Global Sales Ops

• Strategic sourcing, integration and alignment of solutions across the breathe of infrastructure currently supporting the global sales org (with salesforce CRM at the core and a focus on productivity).

• Vendor selection and pilot launches based on capability gaps identified within the existing system.

• For example:

• Objective: Increase Salesforce adoption and improve forecasting accuracy

• Technique: Explored the use of game mechanics to track and reward sales reps for activities they already perform in Salesforce on a regular basis. The difference is that with game mechanics in place, on-screen pop-up messages appear that award points to sales reps in real-time for "good" actions that get completed in Salesforce in a timely and accurate manner. In addition there are Leaderboards that encourage friendly competition by displaying individual scores as well as aggregated team results across global teams.

• Pilot: Selected ideal vendor and successfully launched a gamification pilot (NA v/a EMEA)

• Results: A significant behavioral shift in the adoption of Salesforce as seen by an uptick in sales activity and forecasting accuracy resulting in budget approvals by senior leadership for global roll-out. Sr. Product Owner Adobe Partner Exchange Partner Operations WW Sales Operations
