Drawing on the winning habits of many of today’s top-performing sales and marketing organisations, we will show how the proactive management of the lead-to-revenue process is shortening sales cycles, increasing win rates and improving the return on marketing resources.
The webinar will explore the importance of crystal-clear pipeline definitions and milestones and the need to measure velocity and conversion rates at each stage in the process, as well as explaining why sales and marketing must adopt a common language in addition to sharing consistent goals, measures and metrics.
