Delivered by commercial experts, with at least 15 years of experience and success in the field, using the broad process below to guide us:
1. Plan & Review
2. Quick Win Focus
Our Proven Interim Commercial Leadership Methodology Framework
1. Plan & Review
Our focus is always to get going and provide benefits fast, but it is vital that a time-boxed, short-stage review is undertaken to plan the sales focus. This allows ‘quick wins’ to be identified in sector and targets, based on need, solution fit, known contacts and budget. If time allows at this stage, we also look at critical enhancements to improve conversion through the sales funnel, in areas such as marketing.
2. Quick Win Focus
Using the output of the review cycle we ‘roll-up our sleeves’ and hunt and develop new business. Prioritising efforts based on the planning stage, and then from feedback during sales activity. Focusing on driving rapid conversion through the sales funnel, while protecting the brand profile, and providing best-practice examples to other members of the sales function. Engendering change as needed.
In parallel and from market feedback, we review key functions that can affect sales conversion; identifying improvements in marketing, partnerships, product, systems, engineering and teams. Working with senior leadership to roadmap and effect necessary changes to improve the overall commercial effectiveness.
Our final proof of success is an enhanced and successful client sales team. Where we are able to handover elegantly.
Our approach allows us the provision of one or more stages depending on the exact needs of the client. Allowing us to tailor the approach to budget and need.
Our approach, expertise, and network ensure a quick and positive impact on your sales and commercial needs. We ruthlessly prioritise activities where they will bring the most return; which we combine with clarity of experience to guide additional efforts for longer-term commercial enhancement and success. In addition, there is no ‘hiring delay’, meaning improvements start almost immediately.
With our expertise, networks and approach there is virtually no ‘learning curve’, meaning your investment with us gets working right from day one. Which is often not the case with full-time employees.
We actively plan for our obsolescence, training and hand-overs, as well as identifying improvements to areas that influencing the long-term success of your commercial function.
