Sales Vs CFO

Postby markhed » Wed, 30 Apr 2008 9:23 am

The following should be read in the style of the court scene in 'A Few Good Men'.
Sales: 'You want answers ?'

Finance: 'I think we are entitled to them !'.

Sales: 'You want answers ?!'.

Finance: 'I just want the truth!'.

Sales: 'You can't handle the truth!.....Son, we live in a world that requires revenue. And that revenue must be brought in by people with elite skills. Who's going to find it ? You Mr. Finance ? You, Mr. Operations ? We have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You scoff at the sales teams, and you curse our lucrative incentives.

You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what we know: .......That while the cost of business results are excessive, it drives revenue. And my very existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, drives REVENUE! You don't want to know the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at staff meetings .... you want me on that call. You NEED me on that call!'.

I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to people who rise and sleep under the blanket of revenue I provide, and then dare to question the very manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said 'thank you', and went on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up a phone and make some sales calls. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!'.

Finance: 'Did you expense the lap dancers ?'

Sales: 'I did the job I was hired to do'.

Finance: 'Did you expense the lap dancers ?'.

Sales: 'I am judged on the revenues I bring in!'.

Finance: 'Did you expense the lap dancers ?'.

Sales: 'You're goddamn right I did!'.
