PHASE 4: ROLE PROFILES

Develop the profile for an “A-Player” in each key revenue growth role. The primary focus is on Marketing, Sales, Customer Success (CS), and Customer Experience (CX).

 

Documented profiles define a clear picture of what a great employee looks like. Once this is understood and agreed upon, all other Talent management activities will proceed with effective results. For example, the organization will source, recruit, and hire the best people.
