Product Team and Sales

Does your product team look down on sales? Is there a big divide between both departments or good collaboration to consider the voice of the customer into the product roadmap?

We implemented a product ambassador approach to have the voice of sales and other departments in product meetings, certainly helps bridge the gap both ways!

Yea if product doesn't have solid KPIs with product release and quality they usually whether deliberately or not impact sales team performance. Yet sales are the ones who collect feedback for them they tend sometimes to believe that it's not of the sales team to decide what the customer needs.

I wouldn't say they look down on us persay, but they definitely don't understand our job and it's irritating at times, to say the least.ย

We have pretty solid collaboration. Things tend me get a little murky when too many people internally get involved for implementation, which causes slight confusion and frustration.ย
