Your Guide to Sales Goal Setting and Quota Management

Sales quotas are a powerful and effective tool that provides the salesforce visibility of expectations and helps them work towards strategic organizational goals. Apart from helping you achieve your strategic objectives for different layers such as sales, market, and financial, it also assigns a definite timeline. While the right goal setting could do wonders for your business, setting the wrong quota could leave your salesforce demotivated and dissatisfied – the individuals happen to be the backbone of your organization and overall growth.

During every incentive cycle, the sales operations team and sales leadership have to deal with setting challenging yet fair sales targets. As a business, you have to ensure that your sales goals are engaging and realistic and that your sales team can meet their goals effectively while driving your business toward growth.
