In today's changing market, companies need the new high performance sales playbook.
"Build relationships and the rest will follow," was a common management adage for sales success. However, over the past few years there have been numerous signs that relationship-based sales may be less effective than it used to be.

Connect with our sales strategy service
Despite businesses improved ability to convey their unique value, research indicates that customers are less willing than ever before to actually pay for that value, even when they perceive it - at least not when they believe the next best, less expensive alternative is "good enough" to meet their needs. Which means the business loses out on the most important thing: getting paid for delivering value to customers. Clearly there needs to be a change in the way that organisations engage customers and communicate their prices. Sales and pricing transformations, however, are easier said than done, and failure rates are high. We guide organisations through large-scale transformations, enabling them to deliver sustained, profitable growth through effective pricing and go to market execution. We do this by aligning pricing and sales strategy with the company’s growth strategy and culture, ensuring that the right people are in the right roles, and that sale professionals have the right tools, skills and mindset to be effective.
