  • A consolidated picture is created of recent trends and relative performance by various dimensions (e.g. territories, sales reps, customer segments, products)
  • We carry out intense 45min Q&A sessions with key stakeholders to understand your organization’s approach, structure and processes in detail
  • The level of competitive information available is greatly dependent between companies and industries, but we will utilize existing competitor intelligence, selected customer and ex-employee interviews and desktop search to replicate as much of the client diagnostic as possible for direct comparison
  • Your sales model is assessed against 28 discrete variables split between the seven categories of structure and tools required to deploy a successful sales team: Sales Strategy, Market Segmentation and Tracking, Offer, Deployment, Talent Management, Sales Process, Sales Tools & Analytics
  • Potential and active projects are identified and mapped by their value vs. the effort and management attention required
  • The process typically identifies a number of potential quick wins as well as strategic priorities where Commercial Operations and investment should be focused
  • One or more options of sets of complementary sales improvement projects are developed, costed and with potential value and risk attached wherever possible. Depending on the detail of the Diagnostic, the recommendation could include options in resourcing, approaches and an impact assessment on the existing organization
