The Sales Relationship/Process matrix (SRP) is a proven method to measure and improve sales performance…

Research outfit CSO Insights first presented the Sales Relationship/Process (SRP) Matrix (see Figure 1) in 2007 and has been tracking its key metrics for the past eight years. The SRP Matrix serves as a framework for firms to quickly identify the maturity of their current sales operations and provides a guide to the relationship and process changes they need to implement to remain competitive going forward.

As it turns out, elevating their position along each dimension is not simply a “nice idea” or a good thing for firms to do; the data clearly and consistently supports the importance of firms doing so to achieve higher sales performance levels.

We’ve defined three Performance Levels based on four key metrics:

  2. Percentage of overall revenue plan attained
  3. Total sales rep turnover
  4. Sales forecast accuracy

These Performance Levels play out across the SRP Matrix.
