Agile Sales Management

Agile sales management creates accountability by aligning effort throughout the sales organization. In a modern sales org, leaders must reinforce that the efforts and targets of any given team have profound effect on the outcomes of their peers.

Agile Sales Management: Goals & Alignment

ExecVision CRO Steve Richard once defined sales leadership as “creating a system of consistency and accountability” in your sales force. Agile sales management is about hard-wiring that mentality directly into your sales culture.

Once you bring data transparency to key performance metrics, you can use benchmarks, incentives, goal-tracking and timely coaching to create powerful feedback loops for hitting objectives. These goals should span individuals, teams, and departments, and touch the various levels of your sales funnel - such as activity metrics, revenue goals, and efficiency KPIs.

A sales force that is inspired with clear, attainable goals and clear transparency of how to acheive them creates sales leadership nirvana - an org that is personally accountable and internally driven to excel.
