The Customer Module is a major milestone in our Render journey. This step has been all about helping sellers to sell. We’ve learned what a salesperson wants: what value prop they are supposed to sell, what it is worth to... Continue reading

As we have said, we started the business where we needed to start…creating great methods for defining a DVP and Render Workspaces for teams to get that work done well and efficiently. Now imagine there are many, many DVPs and... Continue reading

We have experienced the workflow within companies of how they build, manage, and improve their value propositions. Sometimes it is straightforward, using one DVP...Other times it is complex, nesting a bunch of DVPs together against one growth objective. Sometimes the... Continue reading

Dorothy was clearly feeling she had entered an unfamiliar place when she told Toto they were no longer in Kansas. I think companies trying to be more Outside-In, more Customer Centric, while operating on the principle of Customer Value have a lot in common with Dorothy.

In professional sports the separation between the pro’s and all others is discussed as the “speed of the game”. Not being a professional athlete, I never thought I would experience the “speed” phenomena first hand. But if you are in... Continue reading
