CRM has gained significant attention and adoption among businesses eager to enhance their processes for building and maintaining customer relationships, thanks to industry visionaries such as Salesforce, Oracle and Microsoft.

I think the lack of collaboration on company-wide concerns, like value drivers, is down to the old problem of unclear CRM process. Defining a clear and ongoing strategy for CRM usage, including common company processes like top-level collaboration and the more unique needs of your individual business is a vital stage in the CRM implementation process.

Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
