Shortening a company's sales cycle is a desire held by many, but accomplished by few.
The benefits are touted by consultants as:
- Getting a jump on competitors
- Improves cash flow (a CFO's dream)
- Reduces sales territory turn-over
- Helps sales forecast accuracy
But how to do it consistently is always the conundrum. The host on SLMA Radio is Dan Perry of the Brevet Group and his guest is a founding partner of the Brevet Group Brian Williams.
- The definition of an Adaptive Sales Process
- Why the sales cycle is lengthening and not getting shorter.
- The problems of the modern sales representative
- Why best performers aren’t always aware of what they do and why they do it!
