It’s the time of year when sales leaders stare at their pipelines like a pilot watches the gauges at landing.
- The fortunate few are confident they have enough late stage, highly qualified opportunities to make their number.
- Some know they make the goal if that mega-deal will close on time.
- Others just aren’t sure how they will finish.
Do you know where you stand? It’s the million-dollar question this time of year.
Managing your sales teams to keep the pipeline full takes a tremendous amount of a sales leaders time and effort, but that’s only part of the job. The other responsibility is having continuous awareness of the total, qualified value of that pipeline and translating that value into a reliable revenue projection.
