Selling consultancy and professional services is getting harder all the time in the face of more discriminating clients, a sharper focus on value-for-money results and tougher international competition. Drawing upon data on 128 activities and issues concerned with winning business and interviews to gain further insights these reports provide comparisons with the most successful and average performers. They examine why firms want to secure more business and the different roles people play in the process. They reveal why some firms are better than others at getting business from certain sources, making themselves attractive to potential clients, winning new business from existing clients and proactively seeking new business through different techniques. They also examine qualification, proposal preparation, negotiating a successful close and learning from new business pitches.
