Stalled deals






Skill Level






Deal velocity is one of the main tenants of modern selling. A deal that’s not moving forward is in danger of being lost, resulting in otherwise winnable deals failing to turn into revenue. 

To manage deals therefore you need cetain skills – you need to know how and where deals can stall and have tactics ready to prevent them from stalling and secondly have skills to bring a stalled deal back on track.

This course is designed to teach you everything you need to know about stalled deals – it covers what are stalled deals; why they occur; how to prevent them from occurring and how to get them back on track. 

Without this knowledge, you are in danger of not realising your revenue potential. Investors are particularly concerned to see stalled deals ( the same deals appear at the same place month after months on deal reports) as this could indicate a larger problem. It erodes confidence in the ability of the team to execute by closing deals and in the worst case can lead to stagnation of growth and the company running out of runway.
