A sales playbook is a guide for the sales team ー from new reps to seasoned partners ー to align on and teach the core pieces of how to win new customers. If done right, it can become the backbone of the sales org and ensures that the success of the team (and also the company) doesn't rely on a few individuals.
Why make a sales playbook?
Every member of your sales team has a unique background and is a repository of sales knowledge. Most sales orgs can relate to the following:
Segmented and outdated data silos
Tribal knowledge of best practices
Various ideas on what works or not
Repeated moments of success and failure across multiple sellers
The purpose of a well organized utilized Sales Playbook is to remove barriers that come from repeated failures and focus on and distribute what is working
