Today’s sale is increasingly more complicated: Multiple decision makers, doing their own research, buying complex products and services. To land or keep a strategic account requires rapid problem solving, which is beyond the ability of a single superstar. 2014 research by MHI concludes that World Class Sales Organizations (selling 20% more than their competitors) possess a common quality: They consciously collaborate across departments to involve everyone with a stake in the deal. These sales leaders create a culture of One Team, One Company, One Goal.
