1. Gathering Feedback and Driving Innovation Troy Lauer, salesforce.com Aurore Wu, salesforce.com Rick Gary, Carestream Health

4. Look familiar to you?

5. How about this?

6. Have you ever asked these questions? I want to get feedback…but where do I start? What questions should I be asking – and how many? What should I do with the responses? Will I really learn anything from a survey? What are some of the best survey tools out there? Can I - or should I - do this in Salesforce CRM?

7. What we will talk about in this session…

8. The value of gathering feedback Your user community is a valuable source of info Understand what your users really need to succeed Give users a voice Make them part of the process Drive adoption by giving users the features/functionality they need Remember: if your users don’t succeed, you won’t succeed

9. Methods for gathering feedback Phone/voicemail Email Management meetings Steering committees Surveys

10. Surveys Typical Needs

11. Survey tools Determining the right one for you How do you gather feedback today? How complex do you need your Survey Solution to be? Is it one survey for all users? Do you need the answers to connect to contacts or leads? How many surveys to do you intend to send? Does the delivery of surveys need to be auto-response or manually sent by users? How many questions do you plan to ask in each survey?  Which version of Salesforce CRM are you currently running?

12. Survey tools

13. Survey Tools Partner Comparison

14. Types of questions Strategic vs. Tactical surveys Determine what you are trying to discover or validate Training feedback Alignment between business needs and app configuration Understanding adoption Quantitative questions Mix in enough qualitative questions Give users a chance to articulate what they need and how they’re doing

15. Asking the right questions Qualitative and quantitative Communication Are communications: too frequent, not frequent enough, just right? Describe the communication quality Usage Do you track your daily activities in Salesforce CRM? Do you use reports/dashboards? Where do you spend most of your time in Salesforce CRM? (e.g., contacts, accounts, opportunity, cases, etc.) Training Rate your expertise with Saleforce CRM Which area would you like to gain further understanding (leads, managing accounts, opportunity management, forecasting, reporting, other) Sponsorship Does your manager use Salesforce CRM? Value Are you receiving the value? Other feedback Provide any specific capabilities you’d like to see added to Salesforce CRM

16. Closing the survey loop Communication is king! Have realistic dates set for completing surveys and providing summary of findings Analyzing your data If you received specific feedback, make sure you respond directly to that user Both negative and positive Set expectations regarding how feedback will be used Where do you go from here? Other Salesforce CRM apps – such as Ideas

Methodology We knew roughly where we wanted to be and didn’t have the time for a year long investigation and requirements setting process before we started So we started with the “roof first” Attack the highest pain points for the business Built visible value for Senior Management very quickly Fill in the blanks and expand functionality along the way This drove a much more interactive and iterative approach to the project Not for the faint of heart or risk averse!

32. Key Points Started with a Vision Ready, Fire, Course Correct methodology Aggressive, but not reckless attitude Listen, Listen, Listen. There are great ideas out there, you just need to find them. Don’t get too enamored with your own plans and continuously look for ways to add immediate value to the various publics Be careful for the “Christmas Morning” Syndrome Implementing each component of the CRM suite has opened a window into our current processes.
