Sales strategy & structure

Lay the foundation for a better sales organization

We work with you to build the go-to-market strategy and organization structure that will help you deliver on your business objectives. We start with diagnostics and benchmarking to identify opportunities to improve your sales performance and build a sales transformation roadmap.

We analyze market opportunity and market segments as well as the company’s products and potential future sales offerings to help you define your go-to-market sales strategy. We build the right organization structure to support your strategy, identifying how many people you need, what roles you need and build dynamic job profiles that predict success in each role. Then we work with you to set the right quotas, build the right compensation plan and design your performance management approach.

The result? A sales organization that is aligned to your business goals and flexible enough to respond to market pressure and changes in buyer behavior.

Sales methodology

Make winning a habit

Methodology is the backbone of successful sales organizations. It provides sellers with a repeatable, scalable and predictable way of operating. In today’s rapidly changing marketplace, it is simply impossible to improve your organization’s sales capabilities and win consistently and predictably without a consistent methodology.

Strategic Selling® with Perspective, by Miller Heiman Group, now part of Korn Ferry, is the go-to framework for companies around the world. It is designed to help organizations manage complex sales processes involving multiple decision-makers. At its center is the industry’s iconic Blue Sheet, which helps sellers identify their position with customers and determine the next action they should take.

Sales compensation

Align pay and performance to drive sales

The right compensation and incentives motivate teams and attract the right type of talent. But too many companies offer sales compensation programs that are hard to understand or aren’t in sync with their strategic objectives.

We design compensation plans that give you a competitive advantage, are cost effective and linked to your business goals. And we make sure that teams know exactly what they have to do, and why, to optimize their compensation. So you can attract and retain key talent and build dynamic sales teams that deliver on your objectives and fill the talent pipeline.

Motivate your teams to deliver results

Sales talent

The right sales executives and leaders in the right roles

To accelerate revenue growth, you need to have the right sales executives and sales leaders, in the right roles, with the right skillset and mindset.

For more than 25 years, our recruiters have been the first choice to help companies find leaders that are a perfect fit. We deliver unmatched results using our market-leading assessment solutions to determine which candidates are the ideal skillset and mindset for your company’s culture and build the framework for compensation and retention that attracts the right leaders. In fact, candidates hired using our assessments are eight times more likely to be promoted within three years.
