Go-to-market challenges

A maximum development of commercial potential in a customer-driven and omni-channel economy.

Commercial potential remains often untapped. A lack of effectiveness in sales and marketing approach is one of the main causes of falling sales figures and declining growth power.

The first major challenge is the discovery and development of intrinsically present, commercial potential in sales and marketing approaches. The second major challenge is the elimination of significant differences in methods and results between top executives and top managers, and the rest of the organization. The need for a better alignment of activities and responsibilities between the marketing, sales and other departments, is the third major challenge.
