Some time ago, I claimed that solution selling is very lively, and that the Salesforce is more important than ever! Of course, in order to deliver, companies got to get it right. light2.jpg

Just recently the management consultants of McKinsey carried out a series of analysis and benchmarks to find out why solutions selling has not yet delivered on its promise. The analysis delivers a clear message: if you want to grow your business, improve your commercial capabilities.

From my point of view, two aspects are particularly important when filling the capability gaps:

  1. Good products DON’T sell themselves! In practice, value propositions that sales reps can take to their customers are often difficult to tailor. Difficult, but not impossible!  We have a proven track-record in similar projects, and some others do as well.
  2. Cultivate the right individual skill sets! McKinsey customers, after „… equipping them (the reps’) with proven tactics for negotiating prices, and improving their ability to handle customers’ concerns … saw revenues rise by more than 4 percent.“ At least now, you should definitely put together your training plan for 2020!
