  • Why  we’re  here  today… How to get the most of out what you have to maximize your sales productivity.3
  • Let’s  look  at  what’s  possible…I’d  like  to  thank  Profiles  International  for  their  excellent  work  on  the  case  study we have been using with the Lens Care Group. These are the forty-fivesales representatives who took a product line from $80,000/month (or a milliona year) to $1 million a month in six months. They projected $7 million the firstyear and ended up at $10.5 million.4
  • The  Profiles’  Sales  Solution Process • Objective sales analysis of the current sales team(s) (Sales Utility Analysis) • Identifies and separates the teams into three distinct production groups Top – “Stars” Average – “So-So’s” Bottom – “Passengers” • Objectively identifies strengths and weakness in both hard and soft skill areas • Build customized coaching and training for each team member. • Consistently monitored improvement • Provided real-time feedback to leaders5

  • Sales Utility Analysis “Utility analysis is a quantitative method that estimates the monetary value of benefits generated by any intervention based on the improvement it produces in worker productivity, including computing a return on their investment in  implementing  it” - Bernstein,  Allen  L.  “A  handbook  of  statistical  solutions  for  the  behavioral  sciences”.   New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston.7
  • Example…”Al’s  Sales  Team” • 10 Salespeople • Total quota of $8,400,000 • Total sales of $8,203,000 • Average sales of $820,3008
  • The results of the analysis revealed • Top (2): – Total sales: $2,200,000 – Average quota Performance: 184% • Middle (3): – Total sales: $2,960,000 – Average quota Performance: 115% • Bottom (5): – Total sales: $3,043,000 – Average quota Performance: 67%9
  • Worrisome Gaps • Bottom Performers average just 67% performance against quota • Middle Performers average 115% performance against quota - 48%-points more than Bottom Performers • Top Performers average 184% performance against quota - 68%-points more than Middle Performers & 116%-points more than Bottom Performers10
  • So What? • Top performers prove more can be done • No one was hired for Middle or Bottom performance • Every Middle or Bottom performing position is an opportunity cost to ClientCo • Sales are being lost unnecessarily • Something can be done11
  • Imagine  the  Possibilities…   Performance Additional New Improvement Annual Sales Total Sales Raise one Bottom to average level quota $452,467 $8,655,467 performance of Middle Raise ALL Bottom to average level quota $2,262,333 $10,465,333 performance of Middle Raise one Middle to average level quota $603,667 $8,806,667 performance of Top Raise ALL Middle to average level quota $1,811,000 $10,014,000 performance of TopRaise the ENTIRE TEAM to the average level quota $7,211,000 $15,414,000 performance of the Top12 12
