What you'll be doing:
In this role, you will drive and lead customer resources to assess, design, build and deliver commercially viable Anaplan planning and analytics solutions. Your role will be to own a portfolio of Anaplan customers and ensure their continual success. Your first order of business with a new client is to ensure a smooth and rapid first implementation in line with the processes the customer wants to manage inside the Anaplan Platform.
You’ll be someone who is not afraid to advise a company or your team members, in Sales Operations one day, then HR the next. Anaplan’s Platform is diverse across multiple use cases and industries. We truly go across the entire business so you’ll need to be flexible and have at least a decent knowledge of business process.
It means you need to take all your experience in business process, technology and client management and combine them to guide and manage the customer and your team members to an appropriate solution. It sometimes means you need to re-direct a customer or team member in the most tactful way possible in order for them to have a smooth first implementation. You also need to ‘teach the customer to fish’. It means you need to make them self-sufficient so that they can expand beyond their first process in Anaplan and quickly make Anaplan their spine of decision making in the business.

Feeling the cold, and the gratitude | Anaplan
Hats (and gloves) off to the amazing team members who slept outside in temperatures of 2 degrees Celsius in London on Thursday! The fantastic cause was Centrepoint, a charity in the United Kingdom that provides accommodation and support to homeless people aged 16-25.
