Key Account Management at a Strategic Level
Professional Key Account Management needs to be driven from a senior level in the organisation, taking a business-wide approach. The first step is in establishing the criteria for a ‘Key Account’, identifying and categorising those accounts and deciding on the relationship going forward.
One of the pitfalls is assuming that the largest accounts are ‘Key’. Whilst these large clients are obviously of critical importance, it is growth potential that requires a ‘Key Account’ relationship rather than a ‘Status’ one.
This course is run to suit your organisation as required.
