KEY ACCOUNT PLANNING/DEVELOPMENT/ MANAGEMENT

The purpose of this course:
This workshop will provide you with a clear understanding of the considerations
that underpin the development of a robust and effective plan to develop
the relationship with a key account. This will enable development of a strategic
plan of action for implementation by all who interface with the key account.

Benefits for your organisation:
Your organisation will have a better-directed sales resource in order to develop
and protect relationships with key accounts and as a consequence increase
key account profitability.

Benefits for you as an individual--KEY ACCOUNT MANAGER
You will develop a planning process and framework to guide you as you
develop the most appropriate strategic approach to gain the most from your
key accounts. The structure provided will support communications both
internally and with the key account, and reduce the intangibility of
relationship management.

· Describe the precise nature of relationship desired with a key account
· Define the ‘position’ that will differentiate your proposition from your
· competition and protect long term business
· Choose and develop the strategy relevant to achieving the desired relationship
· Analyse the business of the key account to identify further selling opportunities
· Identify all the people within the key account who are relevant to the
· decision making process and develop strategies to influence them
· Objectively assess the relative ‘desirability’ of different key accounts
· Identify which accounts to invest in, and which to withdraw from
· Differentiate between customer and product profitability
· Enlist the support of colleagues to both develop and implement the plan
· Become the key supplier by implementing the strategic plan
· Develop a plan with defined actions and responsibilities
· Develop tactics to maintain and build relationships in the longer term

Who this course is for:
