[View Recording] Five Best Practices to Strengthen Sales Planning Execution

Mark Smith, CEO and Chief Research Officer, Ventana Research

Historically, sales planning has been a once-a-year exercise done manually using spreadsheets,  lacking any ability to track assumptions or the success of the plan once done. However, without these critical and ongoing insights, organizations can’t make necessary adjustments to course correct capacity, quotas, territories and incentives. Businesses end up paying the price with unachievable targets, resulting in not hitting targets or paying a higher amount of sales incentives due to bad target setting.

A Ventana Research Sales Analytics Benchmark report found that nearly half of companies have inconsistent execution - caused by a lack of visibility to course correct their sales plans.
