A colleague of mine asked me last week – “Do I think most sales organizations focus on the right things?”
My short answer is “no“. To expand on that, I’d say that some sales organizations focus on some of the right things, some of the time. Many have too few, too many, and/or the wrong KPIs to drive success. Many lack clarity of who their customers are in terms of which ones are profitable, which ones have growth potential, and which ones are holding them back!
Back to your sales organization and your reflections on Q1 – It could be that you’ve learned lessons and plan to make changes. In which case, what steps do you have in place to ensure that you do indeed make those changes?
Or, it could be that you know that you should be doing things differently, but you don’t know what or how. That’s where we come in…
