You can do everything right as a company…design, develop and launch killer products, refashion your go-to-market strategy to seize growth opportunities, and acquire other companies to drive inorganic growth. But there’s a gap between all of these great strategies and your prospects and customers actually agreeing to buy from you. Your salespeople, with their lips moving, are attempting to bridge that gap. Unfortunately, most are failing. According to sales managers surveyed by SiriusDecisions, your salespeople’s inability to articulate value is the #1 reason they’re missing their quota…and you’re missing your growth targets. Learn how companies like ADP, Cisco, GE, Motorola, UPS and DuPont are creating compelling stories and enabling their salespeople to deliver them in a remarkable, memorable way.

That’s only one in five who see an uplift from this effort.70%: That’s the <DRAW> failure rate for all sales methodology implementations due to lack of adoption within the first few years of deployment, according to Forrester ResearchAnd $10,000 is the amount that companies like you invest <DRAW> per salesperson per year in implementing and reinforcing their sales methodology.
