In my latest podcast conversation, I talked with Stu Perlmeter about why sales organizations should conduct a thorough win/loss analysis to understand why deals either closed or did not. 

 
Those organizations that do some sort of win/loss evaluation are often making incorrect assumptions based on what their sales rep tells me or the data that they've asked the sales rep to try and uncover. 
 
Human nature being what it is, you will rarely get the full picture of what happened throughout the course of the decision making process that led to a go/no go decision. This is especially true if the deal was a loss to a competing company. Having spent time with the salesperson during the process and recognizing that time and money has been invested in trying to secure the business, buyers are often very reluctant to be truthful about what went wrong. This is where a 3 party can help.

 
During my conversation with Stu, we talked about:

  • What win/loss analysis is and why it B2B companies should care.
  • How sales leaders can learn from the analysis and use it to drive and improve sales performance.
  • The benefits to both the sales organization and the organization as a whole.
  • How to get the most accurate data when doing an analysis of deals won and lost.
 
And more...
