Take a rigorous, in-depth look at what could be improved within your sales process. There are likely specific measures of progress that are particularly meaningful to your business, where a healthy revenue stream can be shored up, with the right interventions at the right time. We agree with this article’s recommendations of good leading indicators for most businesses: number of qualified opportunities entering the pipeline; the speed of opportunity advancement during the selling process; executive involvement early in the process for worthy opportunities; and paying attention to milestones appropriate for your business (such as site visits and demos).
