Explanation:
Non conosco l'espressione, ma mi ha fatto pensare a una metafora per un "trofeo di caccia". Forse vuol dire qualcosa tipo: non focalizzatevi troppo sui risultati / non cercate a tutti i costi di ottenere quello che volete (che il cliente compri un certo prodotto?).

Ma sono speculazioni ;)
