Do NOT spend money on Sales Training without doing a Sales AUDIT first


Dealing with Recession and Market Downturn
is causing many Companies to consider expensive or extensive Sales Training and Coaching Makeovers.

Do a SALES AUDIT first, before you throw good money after bad!

Our research [ The MAC Group, no connection to BMAC ] shows that in most firms,
more than half of all Customer accounts are NOT profitable.
Moreover, between 30%-and 40% are only marginally profitable.
It is only a mere 10%-15% of a Company’s Customer-Sales relationships
that generate the bulk of the profits”.

its individual and their total capability.

It measures your ABILITY to SELL your Product,
to your Market, against YOUR Competition.

A meaningful Sales Audit is a PORTFOLIO of appropriate
Sales MEASURES, for your particular Product-Market.



The Sales Audit is the baseline score (100) against which future Sales Performance, both Positive or Negative, can be measured and compared.




Sales Audits and Sales Assessments

The purpose of the Sales Assessment is to measure Key Performance Indicators and calculate the likelihood of Sales Performance Success. The process producing a Sales Assessment should involve a Sales Audit by an Independent Sales Assessment Professional; its purpose is to provide a measurement rather than to express an opinion about “quality” of Sales Performance.

Cost JustificationSales Audits should always be an Independent Evaluation, which will include some degree of quantitative and qualitative analysis, whereas an
Sales Assessment implies a consultative approach.

The Sales Audit includes both LEADING and LAGGING indicators as well as an overall Performance Benchmark.



A Sales Audit is an ESSENTIAL part of:

  • Due Diligence, Pre-Acquisition, Merger or Joint Venture
  • Pre-Training Project Management
  • Pre-Investment (or Re-investment)
    the Sales CAPABILITY is a key indicator of likely future success.
