CONTENT OF WORKSHOP
Outline of the Workshop & the Basic principles in the MegaDeals discipline
Key initiatives - Is the service/product directly linked to one of the buyers "key strategic initiatives”? Usually there is a correlation: the higher the sum the more complex the business case, hence this is game-changing for a MegaDeals.
Ecosystem - Apart from the seller and the buyers organization there are other parts that influence a mega deal such as ”third parties” external of respective key organization. “Third parties” can be distributors, authorities etc. that have an effect on the deal.
Consensus - Complex deals require”consensus” in multiple functions and with numerous of people in the organization. This is key with both the buying and selling part. If consensus is not driven and not enough people affected there is a risk that the deal will not happen.
Risk mitigation - Most sales are done towards the upsides (revenue, profit, ROI upside). Risk mitigation is significantly more important in complex deals. For example what is usually missed is bringing up and deal with the risks that exists at an early stage of the process.
Trojan horses - Trojan horses -”informal key persons” (meaning not the sellers champion) in the buyer’s organization who wants the seller to succeed but does not show publicly. They are loyal to their organization and company but would like to close the deal with the seller and therefore is willing to share valuable information, behind closed doors.
Financing of Mega Deals – To help the buyer finance megadeals could be a large and competitive advantage.
The MegaDeals Marketing hybrid model
- To optimize the mix between sales and marketing as well as using social media such as LinkedIn in an effective way.
- ”Influence” multiple people in an organization that are usually difficult or impossible to reach via traditional communication media ,email, cold calling etc.
- Create an interest and request the sellers services.
Our programs are geared to drive skill adoption.
We teach the key skills to sign and manage large complex deals, use real
life stories to bring them to life and participants get to apply these
skills in the workshop on their current customers and business through
practical excersizes. We aspire to drive adoption, the stores help you
better remember and the excerizes are gear to help you apply the skills
straight away and walk out of the training with a blueprint that you can
apply on your customers.
We have also developed 2 additional work shops following the first one. In
the second workshop the participants come back with a live customer case
they have been working on and applying the Megadeals skills (from the first
workshop). Here we drill deeper into the skills and principles to continue
to drive adoption. In the third workshop we teach how to align sales and
maketing through the Megadeals framework to get the best bang for your buck
in sales and marketing.
After the 3 workshops we offer a coaching program where you will have
access to us under a certain time period to support with establishing the
Megadeals discipline into you day to day environment.
Our methodology is based on proven blended learning approach to ensure the
skills are adopted and has a direct impact on your most important and
