7 The resulting challenges for Sales Management organization > Is there a "real" organizational structure? > Is a constant willingness to adapt needed? > Is the customer a management issue? Key account management Field organization Trade Marketing > What is ideal international customer support? > How can one best deal with discounters? > What new forms of cooperation are needed in addition to terms and conditions? > Does the field organization justify its existence (POS impact vs. costs)? > What is the best organizational model? > How important is it to further develop skills? > How far advanced is the development (in terms of tasks)/ upgrading of the function? > Which structural foundation is being pushed? 7

8 especially with a view to marketing "When Sales and Marketing work well together, companies see substantial improvement on important performance metrics: sales cycles are shorter, market entry costs go down, and the cost of sales is lower" Philip Kotler Ending the War between Sales and Marketing, Harvard Business Review, July 2006 Philip Kotler Source:Business Review 8

16 3 Selectecd results Detailed 16

17 Organizational changes must lead to a better understanding of the customer Management organization 1. Matrix organization is replacing functional organization 2. Organizational development never stops. Constant adjustment is needed if growth is to be achieved 3. The cost component of Sales varies greatly 4. Sales is being recognized as a CEO management issue 5. Manufacturers still have too little understanding of retailers 17

18 1 Matrix organization is replacing functional organization Management organization Structure of Sales [%] TODAY FUTURE Functional organization Divisional organization > The choice of organizational structure is independent of how the FMCG categories are covered Matrixorganization International customer-business teams > In particular smaller companies (< EUR 100 m in sales) today have functionbased organizational forms Other

19 2 Organizational development never stops Constant adjustment is necessary for growth Management organization Organizational changes [%] FREQUENCY MAIN REASONS Fundamental, major change Drive growth Reduce costs Fine tuning Speed up realization Sales excellence at POS No change 2 Sales excellence at the customer Internal excellence of Sales Category excellence Every year Every 1-2 years Every 2-3 years >3 years Essential Important Less important No response 19

20 3 The cost component varies greatly, due to varying category coverage and market penetration Management organization Cost component [% of sales] SALES COSTS >10% % 5-7.5% 3-5% <3% No response > The share of sales costs varies greatly across all company sizes. No surprise because of respondents' varying category coverage > Sales costs account for more than 5% of total sales revenue at half the companies 1) FTE = Full time employees 20

21 4 Sales is being recognized as a management issue CEO is "CCO" Management organization Customer orientation (industry viewpoint) Orientation of the company toward customer needs Clear mirroring of customer structure/ allocation of contacts Less clearly defined 87% Role allocation/clear separation of tasks Clear definition of roles, which are then also realized accordingly Clear definition of the roles, but these are not lived out accordingly 91% 13% 9% ROLE OF THE CEO Feels responsible as the "Chief Customer Officer" (75%) Delegates tasks/ customer responsibility to the Sales Manager (25%) 21

22 5 Manufacturers do not understand retailers well enough yet Good cooperation at operational level, less knowledge of their strategies Management organization Customer orientation (retail viewpoint) [positive net value] 1) EVALUATION OF FMCG MANUFACTURERS Overall evaluation 16 Business relationships 6 STAFF ORGANIZATION Understands our specific strategies/goals and reacts to them -1 Staff organization Category development Consumer marketing Visits are productive CATEGORY DEVELOPMENT 25 Trade marketing Logistics/Supply chain Customer service Makes objective category recommendations Offers category development plans that help us achieve our growth/revenue goals ) Evaluation of 20 leading makers of brand-name articles by German food retailers in Difference between positive and negative evaluations Source:Advantage Group; Markenverband; Roland Berger 22

23 Great need for improvement in KAM Key account management 1. KAM is highly relevant for sales 2. Satisfaction with international customer support is very low 3. "International Lead KAM" is today seen as the solution for the future, with clear responsibilities as the main challenge 4. More focus on supporting discounters 5. Fixing the "basics" is still a challenge. Companies try to overcome their past instead of being future- and shopperoriented 23

24 1 The high sales revenue relevance of KAM is driven by retail consolidation National key account management Structure NATIONAL REGIONAL Structure [%] Existence of regional KAM [%] Independent KAM 87 YES 70 Interdivisional KAM 13 NO 30 Coverage [% of sales] Organizational foundation [%] % 70-90% 50-70% Regional KAM is part of a national KAM team Regional KAM reports to the head of the field organization 7 53 <50% 10 Other/no response 40 No response 10 24

25 2 Great dissatisfaction with international customer support Very few have found the best model International key account management Structure [%] Support of international business Satisfaction with the organizational foundation of the international KAM activities Highly satisfied 7 Satisfied 52 Not satisfied 41 NO YES 25

26 3 "International Lead KAM" is seen as the future solution Clear responsibilities are the main challenge International key account management [%] Organizational structure One KAM for both the national and the international business One "internat. Lead KAM" in charge of a team of nat. KAMs for the international business International KAM team One KAM for international business Other Support of international key accounts TODAY FUTURE > International Lead KAMs will increasingly take over the management of international customers > A purely international perspective from one single KAM is becoming less relevant > Responsibilities have to be clearly defined between countries, divisions and customers 26

27 4 Discounter support is more in focus Specific management of the customers and the format National key account management Responsibility for discount [%] Support of discounters (multiple resp. possible) TODAY FUTURE One KAM for each discount customer > Specific management of discounters One KAM for the discount format One KAM for each retail group, across all formats > Discount support either by single KAMs or format KAMs depending on the size of the discount customer Other

28 5 Basics are a big problem One key challenge is learning to understand the customer better (1/2) National key account management Challenges [%] Responsibility/competence Customer and shopper orientation More empowerment of KAMs Improved understanding of the customer and clearer mirroring 0 4 Ensuring category competence in crosscategory teams More responsibility for managing the agreed activities from beginning to end Clarifying the own role with customers Building up internal skills for the customer Focus off conditions and on shopper orientation Essential Important Less important No response 28

29 5 Basics are a big problem The focus is still on overcoming the past, rather than on shopper-oriented cooperation (2/2) National key account management Challenges [%] System of conditions Incentives/Internal efficiency Reducing the growth of the share of terms and conditions in sales More incentives/ performance orientation and cost transparency Optimizing the terms and conditions system through customers Standardizing processes, tools and KPIs More support of KAMs by IT, stricter control Essential Important Less important No response 29

30 More impact can be achieved at the POS Field organization 1. Many field organizations lack the critical size 2. There is more confidence in external service providers than in intercompany cooperation 3. Traditional criteria determine the visit concept 4. Little formulation of variable incentives 5. The focus is on developing skills 30

31 1 Many field organizations lack the critical size Field organization Structure Own field organization within the unit Travel time per sales rep [minutes] Yes 80% No 20% Size of the field organization [# sales reps] >120 No response 11% 70% 3% 16% Greater efficiency! No. of sales reps [#] 31

32 2 External service providers are trusted more than intercompany cooperations Alternative organizational models for the field organization [Share of companies without their own sales reps] Intercompany cooperation of field organizations 0% Outsourced to an external service provider 86% Other 14% 32

33 3 Traditional factors dominate the visit concept Field organization Management [%] Relevant criteria for defining the visit concept KPIs for managing the field organization (multiple responses possible) Format type Assertion of service 61 Revenue potential Number of customer visits Distribution Category driver Levels of freedom at the outlet Support of the outlet Essential Important Less important No response Out-of-stock/ availability of space Shelf share Adherence to the planogram Speed of implementation

34 4 Often inadequate variable incentivation for sales reps There is upward potential here Field organization Management Share of variable remuneration for sales reps 0% 9% 0-10% 10-20% 38% 44% > Little incentivizing of sales reps through variable remuneration 20-40% 40-60% 0% 9% > Little use of KPIs that have a major influence on the impact at the POS % 0% 34

35 5 The focus is on developing skills Field organization Challenges [%] Responsibility/competence Efficiency/benefit Management/incentives Further develop the sales reps' skills Increased need to Improved justify the use of management of the sales reps activities at the POS Separation into simple" and complex" skills Focus on raising efficiency More incentive through less/ more simple KPIs Better support through IT systems Essential Important Less important No response 35

36 Further potential can be realized in Trade Marketing Trade Marketing 1. Hardly any development beyond classical category management and Trade Marketing 2. The great potential of this function is seen but not yet anchored in the role 3. Commercial planning and shopper insights are the key challenges 36

37 1 Hardly any development beyond classical Category Management and Trade Marketing Trade Marketing Structure [%] Tasks within the org. unit under consideration (multiple responses possible) STRUCTURE OF THE DEPARTMENT TODAY FUTURE Category Management Trade Marketing Shopper insights All grouped in one function Divided up between two functions Channel management Integrated commercial planning Other Divided up between more than two functions Other None 9 37

38 2 Great potential is seen in the function, but it is not yet anchored in the role Trade Marketing Role CATEGORY Developing category know-how and category trends 75% CUSTOMER SHOPPER/ CONSUMER Designing and evaluating retail-related customer analyses Developing and evaluating insights and anchoring the knowledge of consumers/ shoppers 65% 63% CHANNEL TOOLS Developing channel-specific know-how and deriving retail strategies/tactics from it Developing tools, guidelines, manuals, etc. 53% 50% PLANNING Integrated planning of channel, shopper, category and customer objectives 35% 38

39 3 Commercial planning and shopper insights are key challenges Trade Marketing Challenges [%] Role of the function Responsibility/competence Systems/personnel Clear role definition as link between division, country, customer and brand Putting together the commercial plan Improved use of tools/ IT systems Anchoring and introducing the function High level of planning precision Establishing overarching career paths Developing shopper insights Reducing the no. of promotions (fewer, bigger, better) Essential Important Less important No response 39
