We’re proud of the history of the annual Operations Forum – which continues to sell out early each year.

As operations leaders’ roles continue to evolve, the Alexander Group will remain on the forefront of change—delivering events with impactful insights and innovative journeys across industries. Increasingly, this Operations Forum has become a “must attend” for Revenue, Sales and Commercial Operations leaders.

Find out why and enjoy the powerful and far-reaching benefits of participation!

Enduring leadership companies are characterized by these tenets:

  • Missions not limited to profit and growth but include a higher order purpose with leaders who care and listen
  • Investments and programs that enable a superb employee experience
  • Leaders who understand the importance of harmonizing functions across the marketing/sales/service/ops continuum
  • Systems and technology that make people better, not obsolete
  • Operations (people, process, tools) actively listening to the market and are prepared to adapt
  • Agility based on a relentless need to find what works, constantly experiment and scale fast
  • Belief in diversity, equity and inclusion because it is the right thing to do AND good business
  • Progress DNA—the tendency to always press forward, particularly when the winds of change are blowing hardest

New revenue and customer engagement models are forcing companies to rethink partner strategies, strategic alliances and their roles in the revenue ecosystem. Unifying marketing, sales, service AND partners to effectively drive customer value is more important than ever. Mutual expectations from both partners and suppliers have irrevocably changed. Revenue operations is a lynchpin across internal/external partners – helping to solidify strategies, tools and metrics resulting in a seamless customer experience.
