One of the most significant yet frequently overlooked obstacles to successful CRM implementation lies in the spheres of human nature and workplace dynamics. Interestingly, it’s not uncommon for sales personnel to harbor feelings of skepticism or resistance towards CRMs. They often perceive shared digital solutions as intrusive entities potentially inclined to usurp their hard-earned client relationships and intricate sales techniques. To tackle this, fostering an environment where CRM solutions are perceived as supportive business partners rather than intrusive platforms is quintessential.

In the realm of CRM, a considerable amount of information needs to be captured regularly. This includes but is not limited to:

‣ Contact Details,

‣ Communication Timeline,

‣ Task Planning, Execution, and Outcomes

‣ Intellectual Property.


A CRM is designed to meticulously track the existence, quantity, and quality, thereby flagging any inconsistencies or gaps. This feature safeguards against data discrepancies, improving client information’s accuracy and reliability.

However, it is the very functionality of this system that serves as a double-edged sword. While the management team benefits from this insightful and transparent data pool, enabling them to address several key organizational aspects, such as refining CRM processes, safeguarding against loss of customer information in the event of an employee transition or resignation, and assessing employees’ performance objectively and identifying those not meeting expectations.

Certain employees, especially those in customer-facing roles, might perceive this as a threat. This apprehension often manifests as resistance towards implementation or optimal utilization of CRMs.

Why does this phenomenon occur in any case? The crux of the matter lies in the inherent nature of human behavior and workplace dynamics. Roles like sales and customer service are complex and involve highly diverse and unpredictable human behaviors. The CRM’s tracking and monitoring capabilities make their performance more tangible, transparent, and thus measurable. This objective evaluation leaves little room for justifying underperformance or failures on subjective grounds like demanding clients or unpredictable market trends, leading to discomfort amongst such employees.
