While almost all departments can benefit from Win / Loss Analysis, sales has the most opportunity to act on the feedback. The CRO or Head of Sales is often the singular person who benefits the most from a Win / Loss Analysis program. For individuals who are measured by their ability to achieve target sales numbers and build a highly productive team, gaining feedback about their team’s performance and what is holding them back from winning more deals is invaluable.
