  • Yusef demonstrates that he doesn't really understand selling - or at least he doesn't know how to do a presentation. He has unfortunately lumped ALL selling into one bucket. Nothing could be further from the truth. There are many forms of selling that are the same now as they were thirty years ago.

    Now, that's not to say that for some segment of the market his pitch isn't completely accurate, but it sure would have been nice for him to tell us up front which that is.

    BTW, Agile Selling is the name of a book by Jill Konrath. Has Accenture licensed her methodology?

  • Sales headcount plans tell us a lot about market confidence and growth plans. We can sometime see trends in industries by the headcount projections.In addition, we occasionally forget that increasing headcount in sales does not produce immediate results. The length of sales rep ramp-up time can delay results until the next fiscal year, not the current one. And the cost of hiring and nurturing new sales reps is higher than many believe. The companies over $1 billion are not going after big headcount increases, but their size probably accounts for a lot of this. While 20.8% of the big companies are increasing headcounts over 10%, 39.5% of the companies in our overall survey are going up 10% or more. 45.3% of the companies over $1 billion are keeping headcount the same or decreasing it, compared with 32.1% in the overall study. Still, 54.7% of the companies over $1 billion are increasing headcount, and will encounter the challenges (and expenses) brought about by recruiting, hiring and onboarding these new hires.If your staffing plans are more conservative than this group, it may pay to do some research on why the others are hiring. You may also consider that they may try to steal your best sales reps.Learn more about this metric in the 2013 Sales Performance Optimization Sales Rep Hiring & Compensation topical report.
