Annual Growth Planning Best Practice Sequence
Now is the time to determine if you need to adjust any go-to-market levers to execute your growth strategy. SBI has identified 5 steps that executive leadership should take for Annual Planning.
Establish a Fact Base
With a robust executive leadership team, there will be differing opinions about current and future state. Creating alignment around the same set of facts establishes a foundation for thoughtful, strategic decision making.
Inventory and Place Your Bets
The Annual Planning process brings with it an outpouring of ideas. Gathering all potential growth levers and then measuring against time to realization, level of impact, and impact to revenue will provide clarity and confidence in the annual plan.
Build the Annual Revenue Plan
The annual revenue plan identifies how the selected bets will impact financial targets across five levers of revenue growth. Using bottoms-up capacity modeling as the foundation helps go-to-market teams understand how bets will impact the different levers of revenue growth and where dollars and resources should be allocated.
Execute & Rollout the Revenue Plan
After establishing the revenue plan, use a detailed execution cadence to align the GTM teams to drive desired results. Map out the details of each strategic objective ranging from a long-term to short-term view, and create a 3- to 5-year vision that can be allocated by function and by year, quarter, and week. This enables you to be focused and responsive so you can reassess the actions that help achieve each objective.
