The importance of great planning for sales teams

There's more to it than just making things easier. Having a well-defined sales team structure, roles and clear responsibilities is key to run an effective sales operation. This allows for clear communication, delegation, and supervision within the sales team, ultimately leading to better performance and sales results. With a clear structure and defined roles, it also allows for better alignment with the overall goals of the company, which is especially important in a B2B SaaS company.

But what about the accountability metrics? These are essential to help measure the performance of your sales team, and to ensure they are hitting their goals and targets. With this data, you can make informed decisions about how to improve your sales process and increase revenue. It also allows you to evaluate and optimize sales territories, identify best practices and forecast sales numbers with more accuracy.
