Introducing Sprint Selling™, an agile selling methodology that helps you and your sales team understand buyers’ changing needs and act quickly to win. Buying isn’t linear, so neither is selling. Sellers need to know and execute the critical actions that drive momentum and win deals. Yet they must apply these actions in an agile way to address the dynamic nature of buying today. How they apply these actions matters. Buying is fraught with risk that incites emotion that can stall or kill the deal. To win, sellers must build trust and confidence in the decision to buy in a world where customers are highly skeptical and risk-averse. Sprint Selling™ balances the need for prescription and agility by arming sellers with a formula for success and the ability to execute it.

Designed with an innovative vision for the future of selling, Sprint Selling™ delivers clarity—and empowers every seller with the confidence to know what to do, when, how and why. By striking the right balance between logic and emotion, sellers have everything they need to move with purpose.

Key Elements of the Sprint Selling™ Training Programme

Sprint Selling™ is a blended learning training programme. It integrates four key elements that teach sales professionals what critical actions are needed to win deals and how to apply those actions in an agile way with skills, techniques and tools:


The Sales Formula

Selling Sprints

Selling Sprints are HOW you move through the sales cycle as you accomplish the Four Drivers. A sprint is a burst of activity that revolves around key moments of conversation with the customer. Each sprint should result in a mini close.

These tools provide an objective assessment of opportunities to guide coaching strategy and develop a plan to win.  

The tool gives sales teams the ability to:

  • Grade opportunities on critical success criteria defined by our Success Formula 
  • Complete multiple Strength of Sale Checks on a given opportunity to view the opportunity’s progress over time 

By using the Strength of Sale Check, sellers can: 

    • Objectively assess opportunities to define their plan to win 
    • Provide clear and objective information to their sales manager, necessary for opportunity reviews 

Sales managers can: 

    • Identify the areas of improvements or the blocking points in an opportunity 
    • Help their sellers define or adjust their plan to win 
    • Coach their sellers on the areas they need to improve

Understanding the Behavioural Science Guiding Customer Buying Decisions

Our content is grounded in behavioural science. The focus on behavioural science across our program matters because we know that buyers make decisions based on both logic and emotion, an important and often overlooked component in both buying and selling. In fact, the emotional component of buying overrides the logical one. Sales professionals familiar with behavioural science concepts improve their ability to connect with customers because they have a greater understanding of their customer’s biases and their own. This helps them to more objectively evaluate opportunities and challenges, avoid aggressive behaviours, and reach their goals.
