Transform Your Organization
“The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence; it is to act with yesterday's logic.” Peter Drucker.
Everything today seems to be about transformation, business transformation, digital transformation, sales, customer, market, organizational. Work is transforming, moving from in the office to virtual to hybrid. Tools and technology enable us to do things differently or to do new things.
But what does transformation really mean? What does it entail? How do we transform? How do we successfully implement and manage change?
Partners in EXCELLENCE has worked with organizations in transformation since it’s founding. Whether it’s working on turnarounds, helping high performing organizations continue to change, helping start ups to scale and grow.
We have a series of workshops, programs, processes and tools to help our clients identify their transformation strategies. Most importantly, we work with those clients in the implementation of their transformation efforts, keeping them on track or adjusting them to drive greater success.

While, in aggregate, companies may be hitting […]Read More
Our focus on activity causes us to overlook the importance of idle time—time to think, reflect, plan. We seek to fill every moment of our time with activity. Whether it’s prospecting, managing deals, reporting, time for meetings, etc. We go from activity to activity, rarely pausing to reflect on what has happened. We go to […]Read More
We need to develop a deeper understanding of the value creation/realization process. Too many sellers tend to think about value creation as something sellers create “for” customers. Sellers focus on the value customers receive in the implementation of their solution, or “value realization.” Sellers focus, often using sophisticated analytic tools, on the return customers would […]Read More
We know questions are important, but somehow they seem to slow us down. Most sellers rush to providing answers, to pitching products, features, advantages, benefits. Sellers carefully filter through qualification and discovery questions, trying to narrow them to the critical few that enable them to launch into a pitch. Or too often, we bypass them […]Read More
Sometimes, I think we think about value too restrictively. Historically, we tended to focus value as something we did exclusively “for” customers. As sellers we know that value creation and realization are critical in engaging our customers. In recent years, we’ve started looking at value creation more broadly. We’ve started looking at it as a […]Read More
