How can digital transformation improve your sales strategy?
Sales is one of the functions most fundamentally transformed by digital technologies. From lead generation to after-sales service, tasks are being increasingly replaced or enhanced by technologies such as virtual communication, e-commerce channels, analytics, and artificial intelligence.
However, transforming sales digitally is difficult. First, digital sales technologies are complex and evolving rapidly, so keeping track of and understanding the latest trends in depth is extremely challenging. Second, many organisations introduce digital technologies unsystematically, a recipe for failure. And third, successful digital transformation is a change issue more so than a technological issue, organisations need a fundamental shift in their culture.
This Postgraduate Award helps you overcome these three difficulties. You will learn about the key trends in the digital transformation of sales, exploring how analytics can transform sales decisions and the impact of AI and automation technologies. You will also develop an understanding of the factors that determine success or failure when digitally transforming your own sales function.
