Recently, many companies have successfully entered the MPS space and have managed to grow a decent-sized portfolio of MPS contracts. Now that you have MPS customers, the challenge becomes how to continue to gain share of wallet within those customers' accounts.

Strategy Development's one-day BTA Advanced MPS Sales Workshop was developed specifically to address the management and expansion of your MPS contracts. This workshop will focus solely on the quarterly business review (QBR), a process Strategy Development introduced to the MPS community. The experts at Strategy Development, the same consultants that brought the QBR to the MPS space, will demonstrate for you, using case studies, a step-by-step process to properly conduct a successful QBR. With proper execution of the QBR, you will grow your revenue and profits. This class will pay for itself on the first QBR you execute upon your return to work.

The case-study approach will ensure any attendee is able to "connect the dots" on implementing the QBR when he (or she) returns to the office and starts selling. No other class in the industry will offer you such insight into how to continue to grow and be profitable in the MPS space. If you are in the MPS space, you cannot miss the educational experience you will gain from this class.

What You Will Learn:
  • The proper contracts for your MPS transactions
  • The goals of the QBR and how to approach the process
  • The information required to conduct a QBR
  • The first QBR: Refresh and redeployment
  • Analysis of financial mechanics
  • The QBR meeting: Gain share of wallet and set up for the future
  • The second QBR: Optimize workflow
  • Analysis of financial mechanics
  • The second QBR meeting: Optimization and setting up the next steps
  • How to sustain the QBR process
All participants will leave with the QBR PowerPoint template.

Who Should Attend: Dealership principals, vice presidents of sales, sales managers and MPS specialists

Schedule:
  • The workshop will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Lunch and snacks provided.
