Here’s how a Sales Force
Effectiveness strategy work for you

Every company needs a tailored approach to these components of sales force effectiveness. You may know what areas need attention and which areas are already dialed in. Some of these may be more or less important depending on the nature of your company and the markets you serve.

Strategic Alignment

Decisions made in the sales department, whether short and long-term, need to be driven by strategic alignment with the company’s go-to-market strategy and broader business objectives.

Leadership

Sales teams need a leader who can guide them to deliver results that support the company’s objective. Successful leaders are those who offer strategic direction, role modeling, internal advocacy, and support that inspires the team.

People

Does your current sales department possess the organizational structure, capabilities, drive, adaptability, business acumen and learning culture required to perform now and into the future?

Tactics

Sales tactics are the tangible, everyday drivers of sales effectiveness. Maximize your sales tactics by strategically selecting and executing customer-centric approaches that are valued by target customers and support the company’s brand among all audiences.

Targeting & Segmentation

The selection and prioritization of target market segments, channel partners and strategic accounts profoundly impact sales effectiveness, business health, and strategic positioning.

Management

Sales management effectiveness hinges on proficiency across a variety of interdependent disciplines including financial acumen, organizational development, performance management, and forecasting and pipeline management.

Sales Enablement

Sales organizations can significantly enhance their effectiveness, productivity and market relevance by taking advantage of the exponential growth in the variety of AI tools and traditional systems available.

Measurements

To effectively gauge and drive sales performance, KPIs should be selectively curated, aligned with company objectives, and be tied to accountabilities that are controllable (to the maximum extent possible) by the sales department.

Kanto

Services Provided

Go-to-Market Design / Account Acquisition / Recruiting / Organizational Design / Management / Compensation / Forecasting / Marketing Consulting

The Sales Effectiveness Challenge

Kanto developed two audio/video consumer product lines but after years of trying, had not managed to develop an effective sales force or new paths to market. The retail landscape was flooded with well-entrenched competing brands in what was regarded as a commodity category. Retailers were not open to reviewing the category as they deemed it a low priority. Kanto needed to change the way the industry viewed the category.

The Solution

I developed cohesive go-to-market strategy and effective account acquisition methodology, recruited and trained a talented sales force, developed sales management tools and processes and built accountability focused forecasting and reporting systems. Kanto became an international leading brand in Consumer Electronics and Residential Integration.

Refinery

Services Provided

Consulting / Gap Analysis / Sales Force Training / Executive Coaching

The Sales Effectiveness Challenge

The Refinery expanded their team due to increased demand, yet their short-term contracts necessitate a robust sales funnel to secure new clients and prevent downsizing post-contract. Their sole sales expert was preoccupied with fulfilling existing contracts and team oversight. There was an urgent need to upskill other team members to effectively engage with top executives in major firms for new opportunities.

The Solution

I crafted tailored coaching and workshops for their top executives and consultants. Throughout the year, I collaborated with their teams across Mexico, the US, and Canada to create a targeting and communication strategy. This strategy successfully engaged senior leaders in major pharmaceutical, energy, and telecom companies.
