“Talk to any Investment Bankers and they’ll tell you that personal experience and relationship-building are core aspects of their job. Not to mention gut feelings, especially when it comes to assessing new leads or choosing which accounts to focus their attention.
That’s why many M&A teams bristle at the idea of ‘value-driven decision-making’. It’s almost anathema to the ways our sales team have operated. The pushback is fierce and often decisive – they just won’t change what they’re doing because of what a spreadsheet tells them.”
