It’s tough to create accurate sales forecasts.
Gut feel just won’t cut it. Nor will a top-down percentage applied across all opportunities.
And often your forecast contains deals that get continually shifted to the next month at the last minute.
It’s no wonder most sales forecasts are inaccurate.
But it doesn’t need to be this way. And that’s why Derek Davis of Gilbarco Veeder Root and I ran a webinar about it.
The live version was attended by 86 people from 12 countries. This 10 minute edited-highlights version distils the essential information.
So listen to Derek and myself as we discuss:
- How a single dashboard chart can double forecasting accuracy.
- How to spot poor quality deals that have no chance of closing this month.
- How to set realistic probabilities on opportunities.
- How to compare your sales forecast with revenue targets.
