Top Questions

How do I ensure that the revenue dashboard is accurate and updated in a timely manner?
I am working on our first revenue dashboard and I want it to be as accurate as possible. I am building it in Salesforce and using the opportunity stages as percentage indicators towards closed won. This is a new process and I am finding that the sales team is not updating the stages in a timely manner which is impacting the dashboard.

What are the long-term metrics that you prioritize reviewing in running your organization?
I believe organizations that I have been a part of spend too much time prioritizing short-term metrics (pipeline, forecast, YoY growth, etc.), and I notice this is especially true when creating deep partnerships with Sales leadership. What do you look at to determine the future health of your organization (ex: new logo wins, # of partner wins and contribution, growth in pull-through services)? How do you balance focus on short and long-term health?
