Pretty much every ‘business to business’ supplier of products or services needs to manage its customer relationships.

And even in this technological age we live in, this still requires the supplier’s people to build and maintain effective relationships with the customer and ensure their products and services are supplied efficiently and effectively.

And it’s a proven fact that the more customers are ‘well managed’ by their suppliers, the more likely it is that the customer will be an advocate of the supplier, which has all manner of positive connotations.


So what do we mean by ‘good customer management’?

This relies heavily on the behaviours and skills of the supplier’s customer management team, and it is transforming these behaviours that PDW Group is most ‘famous’ for.

However, great behaviours from customer account directors, managers or execs is not the only area that is important.  

There is a long list of many other components which are generally more technical, or non behavioural in their nature that also contribute a huge amount to the success of the supplier’s performance with its business customers.

This is where The Science of Account Management comes into play.

At PDW Group we run 1 or 2 day workshop versions of ‘The Science of Customer Account Management’ either as a standalone solution, or more often as part of a programme.

I often hear myself say “Great opportunity to use your PDW skills” – or, in shorthand, just “PDW!” This has been the most effective training I have done in my career – and to call it training downplays it.

Particularly good feedback from the team on all the practise sessions as this really brings the theory to life – and a great team helping to do that.

Good structure, very well facilitated and the combination of project and personal skills training meant that it was easy to see how the personal skills could be practically applied.
