Key Challenge

To build the culture and discipline of their Sales Organization to:

Our Approach

  • We took a very inclusive approach to influence and change the culture and behaviors of the Sales team. The approach we followed included:

  • Upfront identification of Change Champions from the Sales teams, assign cross-functional teams and task them with ideation amongst the organization to come up with ways to address the current challenges.

  • Focus was on getting their buy-in and ownership to the ideas and thereby reduce their resistance to change.

  • Leadership buy-in, support and drive through regular communication & governance meetings with the team.

  • Converted the subjective cultural measures into objective measures aligned with their Business imperatives.

  • Creation of templates and giving them tools to plan, execute, monitor and assess progress of each focus area.
