Relationship Mapping Tool

Navigate buying committee complexity

Stakeholder, Powerbase and Relationship Mapping

Bigger buyers teams and committee-based decision making means that winning a sale is not simple. Our relationship mapping tool helps sales teams to understand who’s in the buying committee, their roles, reporting line, internal politics and what’s important to each of them. Visual clarity is so much better than memory.

Politics / Dynamics

Larger buying committees make it difficult to achieve consensus because politics exists in nearly every opportunity. The more you capture the dynamics the more clarity your team will have on what needs to be done.

SWOT and RAID analysis

For key or important deals SWOT and RAID analysis are invaluable.

Everyone has heard about SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Threats and Opportunities), but RAID is equally if not more useful (Risks, Assumptions, Issues, Dependencies)

Good selling comes from good knowledge, preparation, planning and strategy.

Both SWOT and RAID will help.
