With the profile definition for your ideal sales person, the next steps covered in the workshop are how to source candidates, obtain objective information about candidates and candle this information against your profile to identify candidates with the highest probability of success. Given the short list of candidates, your world class recruiting process shifts to a series of interviews and the workshop provides best practices and techniques. And recruiting is not complete until a thorough on boarding process is defined and implemented to make sure the best candidates succeed. Attendees will learn the principles, techniques, and best practices to develop their world class recruiting process from strategy driven profile to on boarding. 14
15 VI Web Based Training Each web based course is available in two formats: Independent study. This is the classic online approach, where learners work through the material on their own. Course work is not graded, nor are minimum quiz scores set. Application Coaching and Certification. A blended learning format that augments the online course with minimum quiz scores; three, hour long webinars; detailed homework review, feedback, pass/fail grading; and certification for successful completion. Relationship mapping Key to Closing the Big Deal This course supports the participant s creation of a relationship map for an important account where they are working to close a big deal.

Optional follow up discussion focuses on actions the participant can take to balance investment in the account with what the account would like as well as with the potential the account presents.

This course enables the participant to set expectations for business as usual sales performance and measure the effects of his or her sales activities. Optional follow up discussion provides feedback and guidance on how to improve forecasts as well as discussion of their implications and the opportunities they uncover.
16 VI Web based training (continued) Building Business with a Relationship Scorecard: One of the main tools in key account management is the relationship scorecard. It tracks progress and promises kept, and lays the groundwork for discussing ways to expand the relationship. Often the scorecard serves as the basis for a meeting with the customer in which accomplishments and historical performance is reviewed and opportunities for new business are uncovered and planned. This module includes participants planning both the scorecard and the business development meeting for one of their key accounts. Optional follow up focuses on application exercises that are produced during and after completing these courses and their review by and discussions with client executive management as well as expert consultants. Quantitative Value Propositions: Learners master the discipline of creating value word equations to enhance their sales presentations.

They must direct sales activities, motivate the behaviors your strategy needs, and penetrate your target market, producing revenues at needed margins. This course is offered in two forms, one for the sales people who need to have input into quotas and then meet them once they are set, and the second for sales executives, HR professionals, and general managers who need to lead the sales quota setting process. Set Better Sales Quotas The Basics This course provides the basic principles and best practices that sales people need to have input into and then meet sales quotas. As for all of our courses, this one is offered either as in a self study format or with optional feedback on course assignments by our expert consultant.

It also provides guidance on how to communicate with sales people, both to obtain their input and then explain the strategy driven quotas that are eventually set.
