    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find a way to create sales goals that are more closely aligned to overall company goals. Also try and identify a method to establish goals that reduce dramatic deviations within similar sized sales geographies. Also please start budgeting for 100% of sellers to make sales goals and stop playing with numbers at mid-year to make up for being over budget or give back dollars to make up for either overly aggressive or goals that were too soft.
