PHASE 2: ACCOUNTS

Properly align your sales resources to your highest value accounts.

 

Aligning the top talent in your sales organization to your top accounts is the fastest way to produce growth. Having a deep understanding of your customer’s ability to spend (and over what time frame) gives you a competitive advantage when making allocation decisions against market opportunities.
