I have a passionate belief: the sales pipeline should be one of the few fundamental business tools – an essential instrument on the dashboard of any business owner, executive, sales leader and indeed sales professional. It should provide true insight into where the business is, and where it is going. It should provide clear direction about market dynamics and exactly what is, and isn’t working.
