You forgot "sales trainers" who get shit when the SDRs don't meet their KPIs.Β 

"What have you been teaching them? Why aren't they retaining the information?" Idk, maybe because they're overworked and exhausted?

Any maybe because their managers do not train them when they come back from the 2 week training bootcamps?

I've seen too many managers think that new reps learn everything they need to know during that time when the truth is the reps are left scrambling trying to learn how to use internal systems.

You may have touched a nerve 😁

literally dealing with that right now, 2 managers mad that their underpaid people don't hit ridiculous KPIs, 2 other managers that told their teams to ignore everything in training for the last month and failed their KPIs and continue to blame training. fuck it ill just do their jobs for them

I think if you change the POV, you'll see a massive roadblock in front of this little engine that could.... that roadblock would be finance/deal desk/legal in my opinion.
