About the course

The age of the “product pusher” is long gone – sales managers nowadays are trusted and collaborative consultants for their clients. To live up to this ideal, sales leaders need to develop a customer-centric strategy and organization.

Customer centricity is a concept that is touted by many companies yet is difficult to implement. To support sales leaders in this endeavor, participants of the program Customer Centric Sales Management will acquire the latest customer centricity toolset and learn from the successes and failures of other companies: from understanding customers’ wants to decoding customers’ true needs, from gaining customers’ buy-in to aligning internal processes. In the aim of creating customer-centric sales personnel with clearly defined roles, tasks, and selling behavior, participants will develop new ideas to improve their own sales business, receive feedback from faculty and peers, and leave the program with a concrete action plan.
