3. Problem

3.1. Organization

3.1.1. GSSE thresholds: 80% are MS deals, SI & HTTS do not benefit of new recharging system

3.2. Process

3.2.1. Sucess is not recognized fairly (according to investment and risks taken)

3.2.1.1. OE (Sales & Managers)

3.2.1.2. ER (Managers only)

3.2.1.3. GM (Sales & Managers)

3.2.2. Some purchase requests are taking more than 1,5 month to be executed

3.2.2.1. Lack of specialized teams for internal processing of Internal Contract Agreement in case of multi-countries deals

3.2.3. Cross-GBU deals: no proper way to recover Global Account Management costs at GBU level

3.2.4. TP Policy : Setup peer reviews to review releases

3.2.4.1. From CFO community

3.2.4.2. From managers community

3.2.5. Recharging of on-demand experts is taking a lot of time (specially for Global SL resources).

3.2.6. Presales costs are GBU-managed, which creating resistance on cross-GBU deals

3.2.6.1. Cross-GBU deals : no presales budget for Global markets for cross-GBU deals

3.2.6.2. Mutli-GBU deals: in case of LOST or DROP all costs are beared by the leader

3.3. Tools

3.3.1. No capacity to monitor monthly presales costs as soon as cross- or multi- GBU-SL

3.3.2. No steering tool to anticipate the lack of resources for those large deals (to be confirmed with GSSE)

3.3.3. For mutli-country deals the Internal Contract Agreement is inappropriate (too long, not enough fact oriented)

4. Ideas

4.1. Organization

4.1.1. Global Account Management

4.1.1.1. Budget shall exist at Vertical level. Those costs shall be extracted from the GBU, and shared globally per % of ER / Markets / Country (not per account)

4.2. Process

4.2.1. Reward

4.2.1.1. Cross-GBU deal

4.2.1.1.1. Scorecards: Mirror the OE and ER generated to the Lead GBU

4.2.1.2. Multi-GBU deal

4.2.1.2.1. Scorecard: mirror the Gross Margin of the delivering GBUs to the lead GBU

4.2.1.3. All

4.2.1.3.1. Scorecard: Total revenue (Internal revenue taken into account and not ER only)

4.2.1.3.2. Sales commission bosster for Cross-SL deals

4.2.1.3.3. Incentive on N+1 target (Global SL OE targets)

4.2.1.3.4. Tag for cross- multi-border deals in NessieCRM should help

4.2.2. Presales costs governance

4.2.2.1. Split 50/50 the presales costs in case of LOST or DROP

4.2.2.2. Presales budget for Global markets for cross-GBU deals

4.2.3. Compensation mechanisms

4.2.3.1. Hard to compute

4.2.3.2. Compensation: Sales / presales effort made free by the GBU is converted into OE equivalent

4.2.3.2.1. Complex to setup

4.2.3.2.2. Principle: 1,5 of the OE

4.2.3.3. Principle: Use the avg presales OE per resources to compute the OE missed due to international assignement

4.2.3.3.1. Would hardly apply for Sales, since they do not book their time

4.3. Tools

4.3.1. Extend existing Risk of lack of resources dashboard for Top level deals (with top 15 deals per Global Markets)

4.3.2. Setup a clarity report with Montly costs per opportunity cross- multi- GBU-SL

4.3.3. Train Managers on capacity to set the right validator (even for cross- multi- GBU-SL deals) through Delegation procedure
