There are many ways in which our training delivery model has changed over the years. These changes include:
The impact of these changes is that salespeople receive less information, less often, but focus more, for a longer period of time, on each important component of the sales process. The net result is that they reach their potential and generate more revenue more quickly than in the past. One hour - one topic - one thing to practice - two weeks to practice it.
Simple. Effective. It works. So the formula is LESS, LESS OFTEN = MORE, MORE QUICKLY.
Objective Management Group (OMG) is holding its annual, international Partner's Conference at the Sheraton Boston. The conference began on April 30 and ends today, May 2. The hotel is part of the Starwood Hotel chain and they are practicing a similar model. I've experienced it first hand with the food and internet access.
With the banquet food, it is clearly give them less (not enough to food in the buffet platters to feed everyone), less often (don't refill the platters in the buffet line and maybe the people in line will give up), more frequently (at every meal) and get more (profit that is). Same formula. LESS, LESS OFTEN = MORE, MORE OFTEN. But there is one exception. The people won't return!
As a guest in the hotel, we pay $9.95 per day for internet access in our room, which isn't very unusual. However, as a presenter at my own conference, rather than simply grant me access to the wirless internet as value added, they provided two options. $360 for single-user hard wired access, or $60 for single-user wireless acces. There's that formula again! LESS, LESS OFTEN = MORE, MORE OFTEN with the same result as with the food. People won't return!
Here's a twist on the formula. In this case, it's a hybrid. It's LESS, MORE OFTEN = MORE, MORE OFTEN.
The upcoming Top Sales World Sales & Marketing Success Conference supports this model. 5 Days - 5 Presentations Per Day. Each presentation is a single topic. Each presentation is just 30 minutes. Each presentation is just $5.00 and supports the Japanese relief effort.
I'll be kicking off day 3. Following are the scheduled presentations for Wednesday, May 12. All times are ET. Register for some, register for all.
