Consultative and Solution Sales and Marketing

Selling in B2B markets has become more difficult and complex due to increased competition, globalization, e-commerce, higher knowledge of the customers and continuous cost reduction exercises. Many companies response to this competition is to position themselves as “customized solution providers” rather than sellers of products or services.

Selling a customized solution to a customer requires different selling skills than selling a simple portfolio or products or services. It requires consulting skills, and it requires value-selling skills rather than competing on price or product features alone.

Sales and marketing professionals need a deep understanding of their customers’ mission, objectives, values, challenges, and problems. The vital importance of having the right Key Account strategy and management cannot be underestimated, as key accounts help to secure the long-term sales and profit in the organization.

The Consultative and Solution Sales and Marketing workshop provides participants a better understanding of and implementation of the tools and techniques to give them a competitive edge in complex B2B sales.

Leadership for Senior Managers (in Russian)

Какие вопросы рассматриваются на семинаре?  

В мире, где почти каждой компании приходится периодически вносить некоторые изменения в свою стратегию (во многих случаях эти изменения существенны), руководители испытывает определенные трудности в налаживании надлежащей работы своих сотрудников, т.е. не всегда могут должным образом ориентировать их на реализацию стратегии компании. Вашей ключевой задачей как менеджера высшего звена, помимо определения стратегии, является мотивирование сотрудников к реализации этой стратегии.

Семинар MCE «Лидерство для руководителей высшего звена: как добиться реализации стратегии в Вашей компании» рассматривает потребности руководства с точки зрения двух очень влиятельных групп заинтересованных лиц: Ваших клиентов и Ваших сотрудников.

Неотъемлемой частью любой стратегии является «предложение ценности покупателю». Такие предложения могут быть классифицированы по 4 основным типам. Каждый тип требует индивидуального подхода. Каково ваше предложение ценности клиенту? Уверенны ли вы, что выполняете свои обязательства именно так
как ценит и предпочитает Ваш клиент? Что необходимо Вашим сотрудникам для того, чтобы разработать предложение ценности?

Вашей задачей как руководителя является: 

  • определение общего направления деятельности компании или подразделения и обеспечение правильного взаимодействия подчинённых; 
  • постановка четких целей и определение показателей эффективности результатов работы; 
  • обеспечение надлежащих процессов и структур; 
  • обеспечение сотрудников необходимыми инструментами и навыками;
  • создание поддерживающей стратегию системы оплаты труда и поощрений

Все вышеуказанное в совокупности позволит сформировать нужную Вам культуру деятельности.

В руководстве не существует единого, так сказать «лучшего», набора практических приемов. То, что вам следует сделать в каждой из указанных областей, определяется тем, чего именно вы добиваетесь в интересах Вашего клиента и чего Вы хотите достичь на Ваших рынках.

Вы добьетесь лучших результатов от Ваших сотрудников, если будете максимально широко рассматривать руководство как систему, которая служит для создания ценности для потребителей, и будете строить свою управленческую деятельность в соответствии с этим.
