Course description

Global Account Management: Creating Future-Proof B2B Customer Relationships

Agile collaboration between suppliers and customers is paramount for success in complex, global business relationships. But only few companies have really mastered it. In the Global Account Management: Creating Future-Proof B2B Customer Relationships program, you will develop the skills needed to transform your global customer relationships and become an integral part of your global customers strategies and action plans.

Building on over 20 years of frontline research and practice, the Columbia Business School faculty who teach in this program provide sales executives and account managers with the knowledge, skills, and tools to successfully compete in the global sales arena and manage global business-to-business relationships effectively.

Over three days, participants learn how leading companies organize their global customer operations of the future. From customer asset management and account strategy and planning to executive sponsorship and agile collaboration, the program faculty have developed some of the key concepts of today’s state-of-the-art global customer management.

Discussing and sharing concrete ideas to elevate your own global customer management practice beyond the competition's, participants work together in a safe, peer-only environment. At the end of the program, each participant will have developed a tailor-made global account management road map and walk away with a hands-on action plan for a global customer.

Who should attend?

The program is designed for senior-level sales executives, global and strategic account managers, and executives who manage account-based sales teams. The program focuses mainly on the seller’s perspective in global business-to-business relationships, but also links insights into strategic alliances management across industries.

Training Content

This program uses a combination of interactive sessions, case studies, and exercises to apply key insights to your own business practice. An integral part of the program curriculum are real-life cases from participants' organizations. During the first two days, participants will work on their own global account management program‘s future setup. On day three, they will develop and test a strategy and action plan for a real-life customer of their choice. Three months after the program, participants are invited to review their progress in a coaching call with the program faculty.
