Revenue Targets

Revenue Targets

Revenue Targets are the sales results that your team believes can be achieved in the Field of Play within a specific time frame-usually one to three years out from today. Revenue Targets have two related functions:

  • They enable you to measure the success of the Focus Investments you are making-to "quantify the yield" of those critical and often expensive resource allocations.
  • They provide a business case to convince members of your own organization-senior management and other who free up resources-that those investments are worth the company's efforts.
