Business problems are sometimes not visible at once. And especially when we are talking about sales organisations, such problems show up with delay. Unfortunately the damage is already done!
Designing a sales compensation plan is an important and responsible work. Not only because a company relies on it to drive sales people to achieve targets but also to avoid unpleasant situations.
What I call as “ineffective” sales motivation scheme, is the one that doesn’t drive sales people towards behaviours we want. The dangers of an ineffective plan are a lot and undesirable.
Design your company’s compensation plan with care, think about every single aspect of it, from the terms and conditions to its operation. Only then you will minimise the risk of having a scheme that is…ineffective!
