Story-enabled sales evolution at SAP: From selling products to outcomes
SAP, a top enterprise software provider, achieved substantial growth through innovation but realised the necessity of adapting to rapid market changes. They initiated a board-approved, customer-centric transformation, focusing sales on outcomes and lasting relationships rather than just product features.
