Companies fear to look at changes or improvement to their sales forces for a good reason; sales are the engine that drives revenue. No matter how patched up or sputtering that engine may be, the mere thought of overhauling it fills CEOs and senior executives alike with dread. Companies will make ongoing, piecemeal repairs as long as they can in a vain attempt to keep revenue flowing. They will tolerate behaviour in the performance of sales and marketing that would not be accepted in other areas of the business.
For CEOs, there comes a point where changes or improvement must be made to these two areas of the business if growth is to continue. Every company requires a sales transformation at least once to remain relevant. The world is not static, and sales and marketing organisations cannot be allowed to stagnate and to operates using now primitive thinking. The business units are the last frontier for CEOs to address in business improvement.
Fear of the unknown and the use of the wrong lens for viewing the business are the greatest barriers to overcome.
The first stop for any CEO is to become empowered with the knowledge of how sales and marketing business function, only then can he or she hope to become competitive and deliver profitable growth in today’s ultra-competitive market. Most of the information that people are exposed to has been by former middle managers of sales and marketing units. Such information is narrow in content and is focused on compensation, training and ingenuous reporting.
