What is delivered

P0 - Point of View

The P0 module examines the foundational power of a compelling industry and account point of view, to provide focus on the value of change for your prospect. You will learn how to look at point of view from three key perspectives, without the need to perform exhaustive research.

P1 - Problem

Framing the type of problem faced by your prospect is a critical ingredient to deal velocity and risk management. The P1 module explores how to define and measure risk on the problem that you are trying to help a prospect solve, in three essential and very unique categories.

P2 - Payback

Keeping the measurable and time-bound financial return in sight for a prospect is essential for risk management. The P2 payback module is a logical pair with P1 and explores how to identify risk associated with the financial benefit that a prospect will get as a result of their problem being addressed by your product / service.

P3 - Pressure Point

This module helps salespeople assess and manage the risk associated with the sense of urgency that a prospect has to transact in the timeline you require. A pressure point is a critical trigger for P1 and P2, and helps de-risk the deal from competing priorities and inertia stalls. P3's logical pair is P6 - Process.

P4 - Politics

The biggest reason for opportunity slippage or competitive loss is not having the right relationships in place at every given point during the sales cycle. Politics explores the only four relationships that matter at any point in an opportunity, to help ensure you are politically aligned. P4 is a logical pair with P5 - Positional.

P5 - Positional

Not understanding the risk associated with your competitive positioning is almost certain to lose the deal to the competition or to ‘Do Nothing’ The fascinating relationship and logical pairing between P4 and P5 is the most powerful combination in de-risking deals.

P6 - Process

The final component of the P6 Risk Lens is ensuring that the opportunity is closed predictably on or before the committed close date. This module guides you through identifying the risk associated with the decision process, the buying process, and the internal vendor process to get a signed and booked contract.
