What Your Need to Know About Quotas in COVID-19 - Part 1: Solving Your Real Problem for the New Economy | A Live Webinar Event | Friday, June 26, 2020 | 1pm ET Register
Forty-six percent of companies are considering adjusting quotas in response to the COVID-19 crisis, according to the recent SalesGlobe-WorldatWork survey “Sales Compensation in a COVID-19 World.” As we move to reopen, how should your organization approach this very real problem? What challenges are companies dealing with for 2020 quotas, and looking ahead at 2021 and beyond? How should you address your challenges?

In his book, Quotas! Design Thinking to Solve Your Biggest Sales Challenge, SalesGlobe Managing Partner Mark Donnolo explains the three levers of quota setting: people, sales capacity, and market opportunity. These pivot points have been dramatically impacted by the pandemic. Sales capacity has been affected, with many roles adjusting to a virtual setting, while market opportunity has dramatically shifted.

In this webcast, Donnolo and SalesGlobe Partner Michelle Seger, will examine what companies are doing today, how to understand your unique quota challenges, and how to approach solving your quota challenges with methods you can adapt to the evolving future. We’ll also look at the implications of your quota decisions on sales compensation.

What you’ll learn:
    • What companies are dealing with and doing about quotas and sales compensation
    • How you can manage quotas that were set for this fiscal year to consider changes in the market
    • How you should plan for next fiscal year, beyond the curve into 2021, when demand forecasting is so difficult
    • How to use a logical approach to rethink market opportunity and sales capacity to continue to grow in an uncertain environment
