  • No, no – I really am going to try to keep things clear and straightforward, but I do have a number of concepts to share . . . So pay attention!Look, the bottom line is we’ve all spent this week learning a lot about the importance of integrating sales, marketing and product functions, and we’ve seen a large number of SiriusDecisions models/frameworks that help with this. 27 models and frameworks to be exact. The reason we focused on integrating these functions is because in our work with our clients we consistently see significant misalignment that results in huge waste.And to help all of you address these issues we’ve worked to share with you what we see leading organizations do to overcome these issues. We’ve done this by presenting models and frameworks.Now there’s a few things to understand about SD models and frameworks. First, they are not only for making incremental performance improvements in uniqu functions, they are also meant to enable integration across functions.Also, please keep in mind these are models. Our task as analysts is to observe and identify what is working well and then translate that into something usable by most organizations (large, small, geos, industries, etc.). All of these are customizable from the waterfall down, and when we work with clients we always customize.So, I can’t speak to 27 models/frameworks. But what I can do is examine the barriers to proper integration, and provide a framework for thinking about addressing these common challenges in an end-to-end manner. Also, and action planStories
