Session 2: Sales forecasting: 4 November 2021, 9am GMT/10am CET

Join us and hear how a data-driven approach helps you leverage analytical rigor in the sales forecasting process to reduce the impact of subjectivity, and how predictive models enable you to identify signals using data science models that improve forecasting accuracy and identify early indicators of underperformance.

During this second session, we will zoom in on what you need for successful sales forecasting:

1. Get connected.

  • Gather input from wide spectrum of front-line sales roles (e.g., specialists, generalists, business development).
  • Collect input outside front-line sales (e.g., product marketing, BU, channel, and region leadership, supply capacity) to connect and align functions.
  • Eliminate disconnected forecasts across the organization. 

2. Do it in real-time.

  • Invest in capabilities to reduce latency from data-to-insight, enabling leaders with analytics to make decisions
  • Update forecast quickly based on demand changes to improve operational efficiency
  • Keep business units in sync despite different business needs and sales cycles

Session 3: Incentive compensation: 2 December 2021, 9am GMT/10am CET

As companies scale, they often struggle to build and maintain compensation plans effectively and pay sales reps accurately. They often use spreadsheets, homegrown systems, or small third-party vendors.

Join us to understand sales model strategic input and coverage models. Detail critical success factors and priorities for each sales job and identify relationships among marketing, sales, and service. During this third session, we will cover how to: 

  • Determine market pay levels, pay strategy, and target compensation levels for each job. Includes salary and incentive mix based on job roles, sales cycle, and sales process factors.
  • Select key performance measures and relative weights to link to incentive compensation.
  • Develop communications materials, plan documents, and plan policies. Introduce to the organization. Implement administration and dispute resolution processes.

Leading sales organizations increasingly use analytics to improve sales performance and better meet customer expectations. Predictive and prescriptive analytics assume greater significance in driving innovation and transformation within the sales organization. During this fourth and final session, we will focus on:

  • Engine algorithms for individual models output combine using the ensemble approach to improve performance
  • How whitespace models mine accounts and associated account attributes to derive a sales estimate for new accounts or accounts with little sales history
  • The use of predictive models to determine account and sales rep potential
