Audit your enterprise selling process

Succeed in the pursuit of enterprise selling

The enterprise sales environment is complex. Long lead times, a complex costly pursuit and the need for a coordinated team sale means that a systematic approach is vital. 

There are particular and unique challenges that face companies during an enterprise pursuit, the most common of which are:  

  • Identifying and contacting all the relevant decision makers

  • Having the courage to pull early from a pursuit that is attractive but unlikely to close

  • Internal communication between teams needs to be constant and coherent

  • Keeping direction and a sense of proportion during a long pursuit 

  • Implementation has to be on time and to the brief

  • Tight control on project scope and creep

The Six Stages of an enterprise sale

Our Enterprise Selling program introduces a 6 stage 'playbook' that navigates the team from initial outreach and strategy through to implementation and long term account growth.

  • Stage One: Territory & Account Planning
  • Stage Two: Opportunity Identification
  • Stage Three: Qualification
  • Stage Four: Solution Development
  • Stage Five: Proposing & Advancement
  • Stage Six: Service Delivery
