Revenue Operations Framework

RevOps Framework

1. Business Model

These are the "frames" that set how your business operates daily.

Business Model(Credits to Winning by Design)

Your business can move from left to right, as well as from right to left, along this arc. Every shift causes a change in how you should price and sell your product/service.

On top of that, the business model influences yours:

  • win rates
  • level of risk
  • go-to-market motions
  • number of sales funnel stages
  • sales cycle length 

All that impacts your revenue operations.

This is why a SaaS business charging customers on an MRR basis has totally different revenue operations than an enterprise service business selling one license at a time.

2. GTM Model

Here you're answering fundamental questions for your business:

  • How do you do sales?
  • How do you do marketing?
  • How do you do customer success?

Go-To-Market Model

(Credits to Winning by Design)

You match go-to-market motions to your business model based on two factors:

  1. The number of deals sold per year
  2. The annual contract value (ACV)

E.g a SaaS business with ACV below 15k will have GTMs like:

  • 1-Stage sales (MDR)
  • Inbound
  • Community

Whilst, an enterprise service business with ACV above 150k will have GTMs like:

  • Named accounts sales 
  • Account-based marketing
  • Accounts customer service.

3. Growth Model

In order to accelerate growth, you need to understand at what stage your business is currently and what steps you need to take next.

Product-Market Fit (PMF) - your company is validating its service on the market and learning how to price it.

Go-to-Market Fit - Your company learns how to sell a service to the market 

Scale-up Fit - Your company knows which GTMs work and which don't, and now is focused on scaling proven motions.

Grown-up Fit - Your company has multiple proven GTMs and shifts toward generating revenue from existing customers.

4. Data Model

This is the way you measure the effectiveness of the go-to-market motions across your funnel.

  2. Time metrics - analyze stage progression time.
  3. Conversion metrics - optimize conversion rates.

5. Tech Stack

This is your infrastructure (CRM and tools) that supports GTMs and the teams responsible for their execution at every stage of the buyer journey.

Here you're asking questions:
