Demonstrate to shareholders how the sales risk is being managed
Managing the sales revenue risk is a critical concern of all shareholders but all too often business leaders accept mediocre sales performance and fail to implement productivity and performance improvements that they would regularly apply to any other part of the business operation.
Why is this?
If under scrutiny, could you ‘answer the exam question’ and explain to shareholders how future sales results are being managed? Sales are an output of sales activity and as with any functional output require the necessary level of input to deliver the required result.
So in simple terms, effectively managing the Quantity, Direction and Quality of sales activity is a pre-requisite for delivering the sales objectives and it’s the responsibility of the sales leaders to effectively plan and implement sales activity to deliver the plan. So when you hear excuses such as we’re too expensive; the competition have stronger relationships; the market is down; we couldn’t meet the programme etc as justifications for missing the sales budget . . . ask yourself what’s the real reason and how are you going to address it?
