It’s the first question you ask when a new business opportunity goes to a competitor or stalls. But do you actually know how the prospect perceived your sales approach and offering, which other competitors were involved, and what ultimately drove the prospect’s decision?
At Anova Consulting Group, we have observed that companies that win consistently do so because they understand the true reasons why they are winning and losing, and they use this information to accentuate their strengths while constantly addressing their areas for improvement. Unfortunately, informal post-decision debriefs with prospects and CRM reasons cited by sales reps do not provide an accurate picture of prospect decision drivers. In fact, without a third party Win / Loss program, organizations only have the complete story on why they won or lost 40 percent of the time. That means these organizations are undertaking initiatives to improve sales performance metrics based on information that is 60% incomplete or inaccurate – hardly a formula for success.
