Mercer recently completed a survey of sales and sales operations managers, as well as executives, asking, "What is the most significant lever to drive sales productivity." By far and away, the #1 lever was sales strategy – deal/pipeline management, quota setting, sales compensation and sales training rounded out the top five. This would imply most companies would be good at it, but our experience tells us otherwise.
What does this tell us? Focusing the sales organization on the right opportunities is critical, as 3 of the top 5 sales levers are related to it: sales strategy, quota setting and deal/pipeline management.
