Challenges to profitable growth
In all industries, revenue and margins are under pressure due to various challenges, both external and internal. Externally, organizations face changing consumer behavior, commoditization of products and services, channel blurring, volatility of raw materials and the rise of professional procurement. Internally, organizations often lack sufficient commercial ‘intel’, struggle with effective pricing, regularly find execution of commercial activities to be inconsistent, have difficulties adapting to the changing role of sales and lack the controls to manage the whole process effectively. Therefore, many companies are looking for ways to improve their commercial effectiveness to drive profitable growth.
