Sales force integration (e.g. post-merger)
Combining two different salesforces requires integration at a cultural level, as well as the creation of a common language and sales approach, to ensure a consistent customer experience and mobility within the sales team. Product training will be necessary to encourage cross-selling of the two portfolios, and integration of systems and processes will also require significant support.
A Sales Academy can provide a great vehicle for driving salesforce integration. Typically we work with our own experts and both sales teams to create a 'best of all worlds' sales methodology. That co-creation process, along with the subsequent training, can build significant cultural alignment, and the rest of the Academy infrastructure keeps it in place. Many of the tools in the 'Connect' and 'Engage' stage of the Capability Building® System can also be used to facilitate the cultural change more directly.
