Purpose and foundation for your Strategic Relationships

Start building your relationships from the beginning with the right foundation. How would be you ideal customers and way of relationships? Define the clear purpose, goals and positioning for your business relationships. Your strategy needs to be well communicated and understood, before it can be successfully implemented.

  • Shape a new partnership-oriented collaboration and value creation strategy.

  • For all kind of Business Relationships: Customers & Suppliers, Joint-Ventures … Engineering Companies, System Integrators, Representatives, Distributors, Panel Builders, EPCs, … for long-term relationships but also for a single large project.

Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.”

2. Successful Global Account Management


Starting the right way into successful Global Account Management

Is GAM the right business model for you? Assess your potential and associated risks. Which customers are the right ones, and how do you shape collaboration? Set realistic goals and plan your steps wisely. Transition effectively from the existing sales organization to GAM with the right momentum. Utilize the appropriate resources in an effective manner without jeopardizing existing business.

  • Develop the purpose, value, potential, and risks of GAM for your company
  • Set realistic goals for building your GAM and develop a clear roadmap
  • Design an efficient transition from your existing sales organization and resources to GAM
  • Develop strategic customer relationships through Triple-Fit Canvas (see point 1) for customer selection and relationship transformation
  • Gradually build the GAM organization, establish a training program, and provide coaching

Don't just start, start right. A successful start is not a coincidence but the result of smart decisions.



Improve the Efficiency of Global Account Management

Are you ready to give your GAM a fresh boost? Are your customers sometimes hesitant to innovate and grow together? Do you know exactly where and why you have bottlenecks in your GAM?

Find and leverage your own and your customers potential. Align your processes accordingly. Reduce complexity, limit reporting to the essentials. Give your GAM program a refresher that puts you back on track.

  • Analysing of the current situation, development/experiences of recent years compared to set goals.
  • Focus on the typical bottlenecks and often basics of GAM, which are often overlooked in practice and taken for granted by management.
  • Review, re-align or re-design existing processes and tools focussing on how they support you reaching your goals
  • Develop strategic customer relationships through Triple-Fit Canvas (see point 1) for customer selection and relationship transformation

Focus on what serves the customer.
