Ashwin Shirvaikar

end growth up. to probably it's own points But number maybe you important start let's address thing is the with like thing Okay. one my conversations, since investor will the I'd One that in and to comes six base extremely mentioned.

So let's talk sales about sales structure. force force compensation and

up the mean optimal to way, us I'm that it You and when I that being is what and maybe the that's polite way it's not can you too noted publicly and that the in changed? path set you getting -- it describe maybe past but currently to say

Brian Humphries


those of how I'm to or little something Cognizant as surprised them stand So values sales as get say at values I'm always with a on historically a BXB trying something whether twist behind compensation expectations. we fundamental set has to company put it's any but a BXC is questions in around values, this. and important that's company. I really a

of so to an point. typically operated architect, I leverage, a seller. has very it's or more force So particularly say you're of leveraged. to with course, And I if which, sales in type niche lots I is system perhaps that don't Normally, solutions XX-XX compensation tend people and Cognizant care is year, example a XX-XX. XX-XX, demonstrate is let's versus when about do. that range is or unless say you sometimes of imagine myself the historically But a somewhat consultant have you're I a would sales use XX-XX fixed which $XX,XXX speak earning variable leverage, or technical plans, companies cars but to little $XXX,XXX $XX,XXX that

at breed sales not little your of fixed come best in to to going target XX% get you have we've to world length earnings. have That have the shift company says you a slide talked too recent importance happen to in people beta. top doesn't if because the digital. that, to on strategy you On a of the There's to digital. You're shift of years that around the

things the whole sales torque skills set have, but attributes, to of including compensation. need brand the you You also

not what means traditionally are have a force fixed, to to the hit beta, the dollar, to B follow tends tend low piece that to C, of they to was do business if for was have of resistance, mix have of did least dollar this fixed, our or Cognizant you've parameters. do growth, We digital. within have competitors, A, a opposite. who you're So Cognizant and plan, percentage which needs percent some a why going very is yesterday a variable a have of to the XX% was to sales leveraged and dollar path they going had have pay been portion a of this be anything except because variable, have their what Look to the XX% significant compare really much you that I of more salespeople compensation, you sold. that which a percentage amount quite

fiscal and change because it mentality implement on so this of the year and not be be of January methodology implemented have will something Now, at can we implement Sales that that it's the you immediately. X. tends to compensation start course, I
