[6:40] Introducing our agenda:

  • Priority 1: Operational Excellence & Impact of the Value Team
  • Priority 2: Organizational Alignment around Value as a Discipline
  • Priority 3: “Value Enablement”
  • Priority 4: Driving NRR/Value Realization
  • Priority 5: Innovation & Benchmarking

[9:25] Chat question: What is your top 2023 priority to drive growth?

[10:22] Where does “Value” sit among other key organizational priorities for 2023?

[12:12] Eric and Marc discuss how value often becomes most important when our companies have the least amount of resources available to dedicate to it. In today’s economy, it is critical to focus efforts on scaling the limited resources of your team and focusing on the top priorities for your customers, shareholders, and C-suite.

[17:02] Priority 1: Operational Excellence & Impact of the Value Team

[25:02] The panelists discuss how, in 2023, companies should be working towards establishing a true Operating System. Value should be the Golden Thread that connects the entire organization because value promised is not the salesperson’s promise or the CSM’s promise - it is the company’s promise.

[28:11] Eric explains the importance of winning the hearts and minds of frontline teams. The panelists also discuss how most value teams are using a bookings approach, but they need to move to a continuous value model using collaborative platforms like Ecosystems, best practice templates, and tooling.

[33:39] Priority 2: Organizational Alignment around Value as a Discipline

[38:40] Tarani explores the importance of knowing what sets your company apart.

[42:05] Marc discusses how we as companies could all be better about boiling things down to the basics.

[46:30] Priority 3: “Value Enablement”

[50:40] Eric explains the importance of scale.

[52:58] Priority 4: Driving NRR/Value Realization

[53:30] Omid discusses how value is a journey and it does not end with the sale.

[58:05] Priority 5: Innovation & Benchmarking

[58:18] Marc states the importance of constantly innovating to meet your customer's needs.

[59:38] Closing remarks
