CRO Perspectives on the Future of Revenue Generation

The rise of the adoption of the RevOps model is resulting in a seismic shift in the way Revenue Leaders view their roles and responsibilities.

Companies are using more channels and activating revenue growth through more models than ever. Revenue growth has replaced “sales” - and the revenue operation is viewed as more of Team Sport than a silo'd collection of functions.

This looks like it's only the beginning of a new approach toward growth that is only going to increase over the next 12 months.

This increase in operational complexity will demand even stronger alignment among disciplinary functions – sales, marketing, customer success, and operations – in order to accelerate growth and drive predictable revenue.

The function of Revenue Operations is now at its highest. There are over 5000 "revenue operation" related job listings on Linkedin. This is evidence that B2B companies recognize the importance of data-driven fundamentals in building aligned revenue teams.

In this provocative panel discussion, seasoned CROs will discuss the future of revenue growth and how shifts in both priority and economies are impacting the approach to revenue acceleration and optimization.
