PHASE 6: VALUE CREATION AND COMMUNICATION

Throughout the Customer Life Cycle, you must identify, generate, and communicate the value that you create. Usage is often a key lever, but Customers want you to deliver outcomes that generate value for them.

 

Customers take a risk when they buy your product(s) or solution(s). Their superiors who signed off on the business case want to ensure that the ROI is realized. Developing and executing on a plan on how and when this is created will ensure all parties take the necessary action to make this a reality. Proactive communication of this value will accelerate the opportunity management process for you.

Rapid Diagnostic

1. You have a mutually agreed upon Value Creation Plan which defines customer goals and expectations for value.
