New Value Insights: Articulating Solution Value

New Value Insights: Articulating Solution Value

A professional certification training course from The Value Council

Course Recap (3-Days)
The buying environment has changed. Deals are tougher to win, they take longer, and too many end in “No-Decision”. Budgets are more fluid.

Users are more involved in technology decisions. Technical superiority is not enough, value is the language that executives understand when prioritizing projects and releasing funds. Tacking value to the solution at the end of the sales cycle does not work. For success today, providers must evolve, using value as the foundational way to go-to- market, customized to every deal and articulated by every sales team member.

This unique course provides the world’s only opportunity to learn this new level of value selling in record time. Attendees gain new perspectives, skills, tools and confidence to become “true value” stars for their firm.

Course Schedule
Course Description
This unique 3-day course trains B2B technology provider sales team members on upgrading their already acquired capabilities so they become a full value-focused practitioner. Spotlighting roles such as pre-sales, business value advisors, and sales reps, this course provides the latest, pragmatic methods for selling more via harder hitting value-based approaches, messages and tools.

To maximize learning in this fast-paced training, participants will gain hands-on experience and solve real-life sales problems via interactive role plays and exercises. The power of this course derives from (a) utilizing content that leverages the “best of the best” experiences of the hundreds of worldwide members of The Value Council, (b) providing highly interactive learning sessions, and (c) using course facilitators with strong field and training experience, and a passion for true value selling.

A “Certificate of Completion” will be issued at the end of the course, in addition to 24 Continuing Education Credits (CECs). After this, participants will be eligible for a “Certificate in Full Value Selling™” upon completing satisfactory, follow-on testing and evidence of relevant fieldwork.

This course is offered publicly, as well as via customized versions for specific organizations.
