When organizations are managing sales performance, it is critical to balance and align each enablement and operational component. Misalignment – or too much focus on one element –can dramatically detract from performance levels and the ability to measure results. An organization may temporarily need to emphasize a particular component when it sees a challenge, but ultimately success depends on striking the correct balance across all SPM components.

Incentive compensation represents the potential of delivering optimal sales results. But with up to 60% of sales reps’ income coming from incentive comp, it is crucial to get this right. Our study data has shown that ineffective compensation structures can lead to disengaged reps, high turnover, money left on the table, and low margins. The way we have designed and managed incentive compensation plans in the past may inhibit the sales force and prevent the business from scaling at the needed rate. Modeling and planning quickly become too complex for a spreadsheet-driven exercise.

SPM solutions are becoming attractive, not only because early adopters are achieving success, but also because there is increasing pressure on compensation teams to deliver more. Organizations are demanding more than just accurate commission statements that are delivered on time. They need visibility, analysis and oversight into the entire variable compensation process; increasingly, they are relying on their sales operations, compensation and cross-functional teams to provide more sophisticated insights into what is working and what isn't.
