Major change in sales strategy
Strategies evolve, and we have helped a number of businesses to steer their organisation from one sales strategy to another. In some cases the journey was towards value added markets and more senior buyers. In others, it was to an increased use of telephone sales and account managers to reduce costs in a fiercely competitive market. In both scenarios, the change management aspects were just as important as the skills themselves.
A Sales Academy can provide a great vehicle for driving a major change in sales strategy, not least because all the different skills involved in the new roles can be embodied in a single competency framework, so people are clear on where they need to develop. Our comprehensive sales curriculum can provide all the training you needs, and the Capability Building® System offers huge depth around the change management aspects of a major strategic shift. In particular, we would recommend that you complete a visioning process prior to implementation, and engage local champions to act as eyes and ears (as well as coaches) around the organisation.
