in another thread about hottest sales takes I said forecasting is overrated I just lived the moment I was thinking of.
Q2 deal with an incentive in place. Had met with procurement even though prospect was still getting their ducks in a row internally with a couple of stakeholders. They said they wanted to start implementation beginning of July.
Just get an email this morning thst now they're suddenly looking at August because the project is still being socialized internally. I never thought it was 100% but usually when this steps have been taken it works out.
What I don't get is - why don't I just never commit anything? what's the point. things completely outside my power will fuck it so why bother saying that until the e-signature is sent out.
Now my boss is pissed cuz he had forecasted it and I might miss my quota for June unless another deal comes in. I have another in contracting phase but it's going to be toght despite the fact they too have an incentive.
so ending my rant but I just wanted to say I still think forecasting is mostly useless.
