The path to enterprisewide CRM should be viewed as evolution, not revolution. Answering these questions will result in gaining a better understanding of what is required to generate value from your previous investments.
An engaged business is one that engages customers by anticipating the service they require and seamlessly delivering that service, sometimes before the customer is aware of that need.
Work the edge--the point of interaction with stakeholders in your business that enables effective collaboration and sharing of information--to leverage existing systems and data within such emerging customer interaction touch points as Web sites, email, chat, and telephony.
The call center industry can thrive if providers of call center services quickly and thoroughly adopt complete quality cultures.
Companies that follow this approach to CRM are finding they can achieve quick, measurable profit improvement: Become more customer-centric; act today; make better use of all that data collected in your CRM databases.

Complex process innovation projects require a far more complex set of internal metrics that are applied and evaluated at frequent intervals to ensure that projects remain on track.
Sales management must create an environment where top- and even average-performing salespeople exceed company goals.
