Business Goals / CPS Objectives

Oldcastle Goals

  • Exceed market growth by at least 5% annually
    • GDP is barometer
  • Achieve 12% PBIT by 2015

CPS Objectives

  • Drive performance given the new economic reality; position GG and Oldcastle for sales and profit growth
  • Upgrade our skills to keep value captured…not give it back to the market
  • Implement standard and repeatable best practices focused on growth (volume and price)

The new economic reality is the CASE FOR CHANGE. We must achieve share gains against the competition and grow sales. Remember the definition of insanity?

the cps team
The CPS Team
  • We are a group of your peers; not consultants
  • The 11 of us are called “Sales Development Managers” (SDMs)
  • 9 of the 11 of us come Oldcastle companies
  • 100+ years of sales experience
  • 50+ years of sales management experience
  • Several with GM/Director/VP experience
  • Implementing CPS across Oldcastle for nearly 2 years
  • What we’ve learned:
  • No two businesses are the same
  • Every implementation is different
  • Regardless the business (or industry), the principles apply
  • Legitimate, quantified business opportunities are identified in each implementation

  • “Are you wondering why we’re just now discussing SFDC?”
  • Key elements:
  • SALES…is what we do.
  • CPS…is how we do sales
  • SFDC…is where we document and record our notes and information and track results
  • SFDC is introduced and utilized in “bite-size” portions. SDMs schedule lab time during several CPS sessions to provide support and additional training. It is not optional and must be used.

SFDC is an enabler of profitable sales growth…a tool that helps us prioritize our efforts, track our results, and manage our book of business. NOTHING MORE.
