Data-driven Approach Decreases Time to Results

Using subjective decision making for talent development and hiring decreases ROI

Sales leaders are confronted by a continuing challenge — low sales productivity. In the past year, quota attainment has dropped from 63% to 58%, and it takes too long for new reps to become productive – 69% of reps take 7+ months to ramp-up (CSO Insights).

According to TDWI Research, only 17% of sales leaders are leveraging a new competitive edge for impacting sales outcomes — talent analytics. Talent analytics are the new way of making talent decisions and professional development decisions; they provide the path from guesswork or subjective-based decisions to decisions based on factual data. Talent analytics create a new edge for sales leaders by:

  1. Statistically proving what differentiates top-performers
  2. Pinpointing where to target professional development for the greatest ROI
  3. Identifying who to hire to reduce ramp-up time
  4. For the sales leader leveraging talent analytics, sales productivity is up 20% – 30% and time to results are decreased significantly.
