The new science of sales performance

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Nov 27, 2017
"The pressure on sales to meet and exceed ever-increasing revenue targets is higher than ever before. At the heart of this challenge lies a complex analytical and modeling problem that involves data spread across many rigid–and usually disconnected–systems, teams, and geographies. Leading companies handle this problem by focusing first on creating a sales performance plan that is data-driven and tied to business objectives. The research report conducted by Harvard Business Review provides you with how today's sales executives: • Overcome technology weaknesses to uncover sophisticated analytics • Change ingrained, cultural tendances of sales organizations • Adopt dynamic practices to respond to change quicker"

The New Science of Sales Performance

Published By: Anaplan     Published Date: Mar 29, 2018
As businesses grow more optimistic about opportunities for growth, the pressure is on for sales organizations to meet ever higher revenue targets. In a global survey on sales performance optimization by CSO Insights, 94 percent of respondents said their 2014 revenue targets were higher than last year’s. It’s no wonder that “capture new accounts,” cited by 60 percent of respondents, topped the list of objectives for 2014 in the study. At the same time, many sales reps are struggling to meet even their current quotas. And in an Aberdeen Group survey, nearly half identified insufficient revenue growth as the top pressure motivating them to pursue sales management initiatives ranging from building out the capabilities of sales teams to improving management practices and investing in technology tools.

The B2B Marketer's Guide to Decoding Metrics

Published By: Marketo     Published Date: Jun 08, 2017
As a marketer, you know how critical it is to understand how your marketing efforts contribute to the bottom line. There’s a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes to generate sales pipeline and ultimately revenue. And by becoming a data-driven marketer that’s in tune with the right metrics, you can demonstrate marketing’s contribution to both. Metrics illustrate the impact that you and your team are driving in the organization, which is critical to ensure you have the budget and resources you need to deliver optimum business outcomes. Without metrics, it’s nearly impossible to measure the success of your activities and identify elements to optimize in future campaigns. And without them, there’s no way to determine your return on investment (ROI).
