Sales Pipeline Training Course
09:30 - 16:30
DSM Sales Pipeline and Forecasts Course Belfast helps sales professionals apply solid, fact-based analysis of their pipeline. The course helps develop the sales team’s ability to assess the health of the pipeline and to correctly forecast through matrix scoring each opportunity. The attendee will learn to diagnose when sales are stalling and how to reengage the prospect to close the opportunity.
The sales team will be able to accurately see which stage each opportunity is at, assess if there are enough opportunities in the pipeline to achieve their goals as well as understanding if certain contacts need more attention.
