Large Account Management Process
Large Account Management Process (LAMP®) reveals how to best manage and grow strategic accounts by bringing the entire relationship into view. This process provides a road map for strategic customer relationships that have growth potential through the development of a one-to three-year plan to guide team selling and customer collaboration efforts.
LAMP® begins with an analysis of the company’s current position within actual accounts to identify discrepancies and develop a shared vision between the buying and selling organisations. The programme then delivers a process to document long-term plans for managing key accounts and allocating resources efficiently. As a result of adopting this process, account managers will craft strategies for managing cross-functional teams to clarify roles and responsibilities, boost collaboration, and ensure accountability.
The programme also presents a method for enhancing relationships between the buying and selling organisations. Price sensitivity and competitive threats are significantly reduced by managing a customer’s perception of the business relationship and mutually identifying the appropriate level of collaboration. LAMP® helps sales organizations objectively determine this perception and define goals to keep their position as trusted advisors.
Based on the success of clients who have adopted the Large Account Management Process, we have developed a best practice methodology to guide your implementation. LAMP® Implementation provides the basis for focus, preparation, planning and execution that will increase the success and adoption of LAMP® into your account management programme. LAMP® Implementation builds additional rigor around LAMP® by providing the key steps before and after the standard workshop delivery.
LAMP® may be the right solution if your sales organisation is trying to:
- Avoid being surprised by the loss of key clients.
- Collaborate across the enterprise to unlock the potential of strategic accounts.
- Transition from vendor to trusted advisor status with strategic customers.
- Ensure that relationships continue in strategic accounts regardless of manager or key sponsor turnover.
- Reverse erosion within key accounts.
- Achieve account growth objectives set by the executive team.
- Improve customer profitability.
