Sales & Marketing Effectiveness

Sales and Marketing are the engines that drive most organizations. You count on these functions to drive your top-line revenue; they define your brand, find your clients, and build the long-term relationships that lead to sustainable growth. They are on the front line every day, communicating and interfacing with your clients—in fact, to many of your clients, your sales team is your company. How do you align your sales and marketing teams with your business goals? How do you guarantee that they understand your clients’ businesses? How do you make sure they have the best and most current product and service information? And how do you make sure they have the tools they need to create a great client experience every time?

thriving_post_merger_environmentPost-Merger Success

Mergers are complex. The resulting organization will have multiple and likely conflicting processes and tools, varying compliance requirements, potentially redundant departments, teams and roles. The merged organizations will likely need to integrate communication, technology, and workflow systems. And while all of this is happening, the work can’t stop.

PDG has two areas of focus for the post-merger environment:

  • Aligning the New Learning Organization
    One of the biggest challenges post-merger is gaining alignment on procedures and practices. The longer it takes to accomplish, the more cost and risk can accrue. Using our High Performing Learning Organization model, we create a learning organization that is stronger and more capable.
  • Optimizing the Learning Strategy
    Merged organizations need a learning strategy that builds synergy from the strengths of both organizations. PDG focuses on how people, processes, and technology will change in the new organization, and create learning strategies that address the key business reasons the merger was created in the first place.
