7 Ways to Stress Test Your Sales Strategy Best Practices Whitepaper Download

Do you need to stress test your sales strategy to see if you are set up for success? While the majority of sales leaders (83%) agree with the need for a clear and compelling sales strategy, our research shows that too many sales teams (72%) move too quickly to meet quarterly revenue targets without having a clear, believable or implementable plan. Some sales leaders say they do not have the time. Others think sales quota combined with increased pressure and hard work should be enough.

When you ask sales teams about their strategy, ambiguity reigns. Sales teams consistently rank the sales strategy as being 50% less clear than sales leadership.
