PSP™ Funnel Leadership - The key to creating predictable profitable growth
This sales management training is dedicated to teaching you how to use your CRM- and Funnel Management system more effectively. Most executives not only wants more sales, but wants more profitable growth, and that their sales- and marketing department is capable of predicting with certainty when and where a large growth can be expected. A turbulent and globalized world leads to risks, but we still want a good understanding of the near future. Predictability is important for most companies for two reasons. Firstly, it is interesting, because it makes it possible to ensure, that the company has the needed capacity, to deliver what the clients wants, when they want it. Secondly, it is important in relation to securing management the necessary trust from the board of directors and shareholders. Most companies can survive with reduced growth for a period of time, if it was foreseen and not a surprise.
Why is it a challenge for most sales directors to deliver this predictability to their CEO?
The first explanation is, that most sales managers are too focused on the sales numbers (the past) and not enough on their pipeline (the future). This happens, because it is easier for them to get data about the past, rather than valid data about the future. Though that does not change that fact, that it is like driving a car, by looking through the rear view mirror, rather than the front window. Because we in no way live in a mechanical and linear world, it is impossible to predict the future by projecting data from the past into the future.
The other explanation is, that even companies, with developed pipeline management system, can struggle with predicting future sales with sufficient safety. The explanation, is that often the quality of data in these systems are simply too bad. It follows the principle "Garbage in - Garbage out"
The way we see it in Acuity World, both your "macro-strategies" and "micro-strategies" has to be in place to secure a better predictability for you with your pipelines. To expand, besides having an up-to-date CRM-system, it is important to:
- Ensure that the structure of your pipeline, is designed after the way your clients wants to buy, not how you want to sell. This will ensure that the stages your pipeline consists of also matches the actual process.
- Ensure that the data, the seller is providing, is of high quality. Make sure that the data is based on specific knowledge about the client, rather than guessing and clairvoyance.
This is a very simple solution, that is not necessarily as easy to implement, because besides the good professional competencies and economic understanding, it also requires very good personal and social skills, within the people with the contact to both your current and potential client.
In other words, it requires your sellers to improve even more at asking the right questions, listen to the clients answer more carefully and have the courage to challenge, to ensure the wanted quality in the answers they get. Though this is not enough. They also have to create situations, which the client values enough, to actually want to follow the process. It is the development of these personal and interpersonal competencies, you will learn to develop within your sellers at this training.
