  • I’m going to focus on the CHASMLet’s consider 2 common challenges.
  • The first is the size of the market and hence the size of the opportunity.For example you may have a product or service that will benefit any organisation who has more than 100 employees.It’s cross-industryTherefore the opportunity size is vast“If we could just get 0.5% of each market we’d be rich!”My colleague David will be talking about this particular problem in more detail later....
  • Challenge 2 is around the pipeline.Often companies have a huge number of ‘Identified’ opportunities. Loads of interested people and prospects. However very few of them close.Why?Or companies have very few opportunities. Little interested people and prospects.Why?
  • 1) Invest in more trade shows – hey we got 30 leads last time let’s get some more!!
  • Not yet prospectsWay too early in the Technology Adoption Life CycleNo “Compelling Reason to Buy”
  • Loft conversion example WANT is NOT a Compelling ReasonTake all of your pipeline and ask the questions:Ask your sales teamIf they don’t know then task them to find out!If they don’t know or it’s FAR from compelling then take them out of your forecastUntil you can PROVE why they MUST!
  • If you don’t know the objectives then ask them – 1st call – “It would be really useful if you could share with me your key objectives for this year”What does this person lie awake at night sweating over??!!
  • They may be UNIQUE but who cares??!!And they don’t help me achieve my objectives and they don’t take away the pain
  • 1) The Geoffrey Moore book Crossing the Chasm is worthy of a weeks course so for the benefit of this evening I’m going to focus around the chasm.2) Let me give you an example....
